Hi All, I was wondering if you could give me any advice. I don't know how far along I am (1-2 months, iI'm going to the doc this afternoon) but I have been a social/binge drinker every weekend during football season. I've had more than 5 drinks once a week. I'm so scared about what this can do to my unborn child. I've tried to look some stuff up on the internet and I plan on telling my doctor. I was wondering if any of you had any comments? I found out I was pregnant last night and it's been boggling my mind ever since. Thank you for your help.

Everyone makes mistakes so don't beat youself up about this one. Just thought that I'd let you know about my cousin. She knew fine well that she was preggers and she continued to drink wuite a bit throuhgout claiming. No matter what anyone said she carried on. Her daughter was born and is a perfectly healthy 14mths now! Don't worry too much, talk to the doc and behave yourself now! Good luck.

rj_80--thank you very much for that, that eases my mind a little. how much did your cousin drink though? was it everyday, every week and was it considered "binge" drinking?

Quigs, I had a little dinner party a week before we found out we were preggo. Needless to say we drank lots of wine, beer, margaritas, got tipsy, all that jazz. So I worried too, but the baby is still a ball of cells. I think once you find out you're pregnant, that's sufficient time to stop drinking, though I hear it's okay to have the occasional gla__s of wine. Have many friends that have throughout their pregnancy and the babies are fine.

i understand that doing it once is okay and even a gla__s of wine a week is okay (which i will not do). but i was drinking every sunday--5 plus beers for two months (i have an irregular period which comes every 1-3 months so didn't think twice).
