When does your diet effect a pregnancy?

If you don't know if you're pregnant and it's only been MAYBE 2 weeks... when should you stop drinking wine? And some people drink wine the whole term, what's good, bad?

  • Any alcohol can be bad but in the first few weeks when you don't know that you are pregnant you are probably ok if you had a few drinks. Women should stop as soon as they know they are pregnant.

  • You should stop as soon as you suspect you are and deff. when you find out you are..whats good or bad varies with every dr. some say a glass of wine wont hurt anything...others say better safe then's really up to you as a mother and what you feel is best for your baby.

  • Fetal Alcohol Syndrome generally occurs in the first trimester, before a woman knows that she's pregnant.
