Hello my name is Danielle you can call my Danny . I am currently 16 weeks pregnant and I drank alcohol every day until I found out I was 14 weeks pregnant. No words can describe how terrified I am and how bad I feel. I feel like I am sinking into depression.. My doctor told me what's done is done and not to drink anymore. I thought I couldn't get pregnant since I was not taking birth control and could not get pregnant for years. Has anyone ever been in this situation or know anyone that has? I have not drank since finding out and I don't plan to even when baby is born I feel so terrible. All the research I have done does not look good at all for my baby ;(

There are millions of women that have been in the same position as you as have had healthy babies. Stop searching the internet because you are only going to find the bad side of things and it will make you feel even worse.
Your doctor is correct in that you can't change what has happened. The main thing is you have stopped now. Make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and take your pregnancy vitamins to help bubs grow nice and strong.
