From what I've learned, until the placenta forms (which occurs between weeks 6-8), there is no connection between mother and fetus, so I wouldn't worry about it at all. I have many friends who had the same situation and their OBs told them not to worry because it is so early on a pregnancy. Hope that helps!

Yes I agree that it wouldn't do damage this soon. You hear of people drinking heavy early in pregnancy not knowing that they are and the doctor a__sures them that the baby will be fine. Obviously drinking isn't a good idea. I thought I had better add a disclaimer before someone decided to rip me a new one. lol
