I am about three -four weeks (one week late and positive test). For the first three weeks, I drank heavily. . 2-3 glasses of wine every night and one weekend had friends in town and had 4-7 glasses of champagne or wine a night! i have cut it out now that i know, but am very worried about the impact of that first three weeks. any thoughts?

DONT THINK ANYMORE ABOUT THIS. Stop worrying, nothing happened. Believe me, your doc will say the exact same thing. And 2-3 gla__ses of wine is hardly considered heaving drinking. Okay if you never drink then you might think that.....but when it comes to FAS they are talking chronic alcoholics, meaning morning, noon and night drinkers. Google "occasional binge drinking pregnancy" and you will see a new study out....which says there is no conclusive evidence that occacasional binge drinking (5 plus drinks one sitting) has any effect on fetus, ie, preterm labor, low birth weight, FAS, short length. Yea I am sure I will have some tee-totalers screaming at me for writing this, but why worry a mom who drank before she knew she was pregant and now doesent....? CONGRATS!!!!!!!
