Re: New here & need advice
I believe I read that the baby is protected from alcohol in the very early stages of pregnancy. I am not sure how, but you can look it up. I don't think you should worry. Most of my friends who got pregnant when they were younger, either didn't realize, or were in denial for several months, and continued to drink, all had perfect babies. Also, remember that not long ago, alcohol was not even recognized as dangerous to the fetus, and many mothers drank throughout their pregnancies, and many were encouraged to drink beer to "help their milk come in". Seriously, I have heard older people say this within the past few years. That said, you have quit drinking already, and obviously are not going to continue. So, get checked out, but don't worry. My unprofessional opinion is that the chances of any damage being done is ZERO!
