  • I did drink before I found out I was pregnant. The weeks before I found out, I had 2 birthday parties to go to and an out of state wedding. I didn't get drunk because I wasn't feeling right because of the pregnancy. My daughter is now 9 months and so far she seems fine. My doc said not to worry about it when I was pregnant

  • I drank once. I didn't know that I was pregnant though, because if I had known, I wouldn't have drank. I'm very against drinking, doing drugs, smoking cigarettes, and taking medications that can be harmful to the baby. I was at the very beginning of my pregnancy, probably about the second week or third, because I'd taken a pregnancy test and it came up negative so I thought I was okay to drink and plus I had gotten my period, it was a day or two late, but I thought it was okay. But when I found out that I was 6 weeks pregnant at the doctor after I missed my period and taking 2 HPTs that were positive, I felt HORRIBLE and NEVER drank or did anything to harm my child. I miscarried at 19 wks though, because I had gotten an infection in my blood, and had to have a blood transfusion. She was perfect when she was born though. Nothing was physically wrong with her.

  • I never drank when I knew I was pregnant, or even suspected I was. Drinking while pregnant is one of my hot button issues and I do not have a high opinion of women who drink while pregnant or Drs who condone it.

  • I drank before I knew I was pregnant: I had about 3 beers and one shot of liquor. I found out a few days later that I was 8 weeks preggo. (Had no idea - we'd been taking precautions so it wasn't even a thought in my mind!) My daughter is now 2-1/2 and she is perfectly healthy!

  • i did but i didnt know i was. DH left one day to go back on tour, and i flew home the next day. Well, I didn't know when I was pregnant, so when I got home, friends took me out a few times. I didn't know until i was a month along though. I had no symptoms. I had only drank 4 times, but I still felt horrible. So far he is growing super healthy.

    I do have a friend who drank while she was pregnant, and her son is very tiny for his age, and has a lot of issues. But she drank a lot. My mom smoked with me, and I get winded very easy. That is my only issue from that, but its still annoying.

  • I used to drink a lot and did before i found out i was pregnant with my son, he is now a healthy happy 4 year old. I drank once or twice before i found out i was pregnant with my daughter and she is a healthy 16 month old. I never got wasted when i was pregnant with my daughter but i think i might have when i was pregnant with my son (of course before i knew i was pregnant) but i still feel bad about it even though they are both healthy kids.

  • Both babies I was **** faced knock out drunk more than once before I found out I was pregnant. The first time I was a partier, the second I was on vacation and also my brothers wedding. I can not even begin to explain the guilt I felt BUT both kids turned out happy and healthy. No complications/disorders or diseases thank god.
