  • with my first I didn't know I was pregnant with her until I was almost 2 months. I drank a lot on the weekends, and even smoked (the green stuff)...I was terrified there would be something wrong with her. I shared my concerns with my doctor and he told me he thought it would be fine since I stopped as soon as I found out and she was fine.

  • I drank once before I knew, got pretty trashed. My daughter has developmental delays, but her doctors do not believe that one occasion is to blame.

  • i drnk alot a week before i found out and my dr told me that its considered a "hit or miss", meaning that if it was going to affect the pregnancy, it already would have and i would miscarry. he said at that point the cells will either all die (miscarry) or regenerate and continue on in a normal pregnancy... so long as you dont drink anymore
