  • Absolutely not. You can still drink 1-2 drinks a day and be OK. Fetal alcohol syndrome doesn't come into play unless you are a very heavy drinker every day. Of course it is better if you didn't had any but I drank a few while I was preggers.

  • One time is not anything to stress over. Its the continuous use that does the most harm. You didnt know :) Stressing over it probably causes you more problems than the drink did.

  • On my 21st birthday I went out and got trashed. I mean like 16 drinks. 9 days later I found out I was pregnant :O

    I was freaked out and asked my doctor and he said that one time was not a huge deal, everyday is a different matter. My kid was born perfectly normal.
