  • I was working at a bar when I got pregnant. So yeah, I was drinking quite a bit. At least 3 beers a night plus shots. I quit as soon as I found out and my baby girl was fine.

  • I didn't drink regularly, but I went out with some friends and got majorly trashed one night, then had a few drinks when my parents were visiting. I found out I was pregnant at about six weeks, maybe less and stopped drinking, obviously. She was absolutely fine.

  • same here, except lilbit was serving me the drinks...haha..i was on my third beer, and i don't know which cigarette at the very instant i realized i hadn't had a period for a while...didn't have anything else to drink or smoke until after baby was born..big, 9lb, healthy, all toes and fingers accounted for, etc. actually, my first alcoholic drink was when he was 3 months old, after our wedding ceremony..and the cigs didn't come back until 3 years later..sad to say.

  • I got pregnant around the 4th of July. I was drinking like 5 beers a night, shots, and smoking pot. I stoped drinking when I got my BFP at 4 weeks. I told my Doctor everything. Your Docter will tell you too. Everything will be fine but do not drink any more. I didn't. Drinking does the most damage as you go later into pregnancy.

  • I had a few drinks on several occasions before realizing I was pregnant with my son. I was worried about it, but he turned out just fine.
