Did you drink before you knew you were pregnant?

I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was 8 weeks pregnant, and before that, I was drinking a lot, every day, about 8-10 glasses or more of wine & some shots.. Yeah, I'm an alcoholic, but I didn't drink at all once I found out I was pregnant. Just wondering if anyones done this too, and has had a baby with complications of any kind.

  • I didn't drink that much, but I did have one fun night before I found out. I told my Dr. about it and she said a lot of people do this and not to worry. My baby came out healthy too:)
