I'm a 19 year old college freshman who did not expect to be pregnant but i am considering keeping it. My lifestyle, since i've been at WVU( #1 U.S. party school) has been extremely unhealthy, mostly attributed to alcohol. I am about 3 weeks pregnant and there have been about 5 days since conception that I have not consumed a considerable amount of alcohol. I quit as soon as I got the results. Is there any way this baby could be normal?

Hi there. Yes there is a good chance your baby will be normal. For the first few weeks, there is no placenta, and the embryo is independant. HOwever, it is good to take no chances and stop the bad habits now, like you are doing. I know of a few people that did drink (or smoke pot) before they knew they were pregnant and they had perfect babies, given that they stopped when they got the good news. So congratulations, and keep up the good habits, it's so worth it!

You are considering keeping the baby and you quit drinking as soon as you got the pregnancy results. Lots of people drink the first couple of weeks not realizing they are pregnant. I think there is a good chance the baby will be normal. I also think it looks like this baby has a mother who cares. I know it is a hard road in your position, but a baby is such a blessing. I would love to have another, they bring such love into your life. Good luck!

Hi there, Absolutely your baby will be fine. Like K said many people are in the same situation as you. Just quit now like you have. I think you'll be a great mom. Best wishes and enjoy this blessing that has been given to you. xox
