Confused.... - August 6

Well I found out I am 6 weeks pregnant. I had no symptoms what so ever. I do not think I want to keep it based on the fact I drank about 8 times during that month. Is not that I don't want it, It is just I am scared because I don't want to have a retarded baby or soemthing. I do not know wha to do. And my fiance doesn't want to keep it, but now I am so confused I want to but i don't. Man oh man. I would like to keep it but I am afraid of the fact that I drank those few times. I am confused. I don't know what to do.

Your baby is probably fine. You guys really want to have it, then those few drinks shouldn't deter you. Most women who become pregnant do not know in the first few weeks and have some drinks. I am on of them. I am just about 32 weeks along and all of my ultrasounds have come great, no signs of birth defect and it’s larger than average for its gestational age. I imagine you are concerned about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). You should do your own research on this, but you will find that most say no amount of alcohol is safe during pregnancy. This is because of the difference in alcohol tolerance for the individual, no study can conclusive say how much is too much. For that reason, the general consensus is no amount is safe. Look at lots of different research. Most of the sites that talk about FAS are designed to scare the "bejeezus" out of you. Most importantly talk to your health care provider. Here are a couple links to get you started. Copy and paste them into the address bar. http://www.health.gov.au/pubs/drug/alc_hand/alc_c12.htm http://www2.potsdam.edu/alcohol-info/FAS/FAS.html

Thats how I felt. I was drinking , smoking doing drugs and my life was completley out of control plus I had just gotten into a car wreck where I got a DUI. After my accident about a month later I found out I was pregnant. I wasnt going to keep her, and I want with the dad anymore. But today I am 17 weeks pregnant, 28 ,working single mommy to be and I cant tell you what the baby did to change my life around. If your fiance doesent want a child maybe he should of kept his pants on. But the decision is up to you. You will know in your heart.
