Hi guys, I was just looking for some advise, I feel like such a bad person, last night I went for some food with a friend and had a few glasses of wine, it just didn't cross my mind not to as I consider myself as not pregnant. I got home and it clicked that I could be in the very early stages of pregnancy and what could I have done to the embryo, can drinking stop it attaching? If it does attach could I have caused it damaged?

I spent most the night awake panicking, researching on the internet and not sleeping, I certainly won't be doing that on my next cycle as I feel awful and ashamed of myself.

Any advise anyone has would be really appreciated?

On December 20th I prettymuch drunk my bodyweight in alcohol. On December 25th I got my bfp. DD is perfect.

It was towards the end of 2 week holiday in France that I started to suspect that I might be pregnant. I had drunk a fair amount at the point! My DD is a happy healthy 12 year old. Don't worry, many women will have drunk before realising they are pregnant.

Don't sweat it! Most people don't even know they are pregnant until they are two weeks late never mind the two week wait. Until implantation happens it's not even getting any of your blood supply. Also whilst not recommended even in pregnancy one drink will cause no harm. I doubt you were leg less?

Stop worrying, chill ax and send some good vibes to your potential embryo!

Honestly don't worry about it. Obviously once you know you are it's best to restrict alcohol but in the 2ww it's different. I too drank a shedload the weekend before I got my bfp with my now 2 year old dd. I don't think drinking/not drinking would affect anything at this early stage.

I'm no expert but when I was in the very early stages (had no idea I could be pregnant) I went on 2 pretty big nights out. One of them was a works Christmas do so I drank quite a lot. Also went out on Boxing Day with a large group of people and again got quite drunk. Found out I was pregnant on 1st of January 2010. She's now 3 and chatting non stop while I'm trying to write this. No lasting damage at all smile try not to worry I'm sure a glass or 2 will be fine.

When I fell pregnant with DS it was a month before I got married. You can imagine, with the hen party and the wedding how much I drank in my first month of pregnancy! I also had gallstones, so I was taking a concoction of pain and anti sickness medication at time throughout the month too!
Of course when i found out I was pregnant I stopped the medication and drinking, but that first month was pretty bad!
DS turned out fine, I had a problem free pregnancy and birth and he has no problems now. Don't worry about having one glass of wine, I'm sure you will be fine x

Please don't worry. The placenta isn't formed until 10 weeks or so. I tested negative on a tuesday, drank a bottle of wine on the Wednesday evening and then tested positive Thursday morning! My perfect six month old is commando crawling around on the floor!

Thanks guys, I was expecting to get abuse for being a bad person.

ELR no I wasn't really drunk but defiantly a bit tipsy! I was so worried that it may not implant and I was so stupid to have drunk! I don't think I will have another until AF appears or in 9 months, which ever comes first lol

Well I'm of to work now, sleep deprived from worry and with a mini hangover, wish me luck!

It doesn't matter a jot! Last time I was completely wasted so many times before I discovered I was pregnant. DD is 6, but she does like a tipple herself so who knows smile

btw, I'm on my 2ww too. I got drunk last fri and I'm out for dinner tonight so will definitely have a few with my meal. I find the waiting torturous and having a drink lets me relax.....

Please don't google and just get an early night....

I really wouldn't worry about it!! My friend didn't find out she was pregnant until she was over 11 weeks gestation and in that time she'd certainly had a drink - in fact she had been absolutely hammered at my wedding when she would have been about 6-7 weeks smile She is now 30 weeks and the baby is absolutely fine!!!

Don't worry about it - I think nearly everyone has done it/is the product of their mother doing it

Happy to be corrected on this by someone who knows more, but I think the egg carries all it's own nutrition with it for the first too weeks (which makes sense being an egg and all). It only starts sharing your system when it implants in the wall of your womb, around two weeks after conception, which is around the time you start wondering should you POAS.
So for that reason, the drinks you took during the 2ww don't get near the fertilized egg at all.

I had surgery under GA, loads of strong antibiotics and painkillers 3 days before I got my BFP shock Am nearly 10 weeks and fingers crossed alls well so I wouldn't worry smile

Stop beating yourself up - you won't have done any harm this early on. That is if you actually are even pregnant.

LadyGoneGaga Thu 10-Oct-13 16:53:19

Don't be daft. No need to beat yourself up. Embryo is free floating until at least 7dpo and then isn't really sharing a blood supply for a few days after that. You'll be fine! And if it really affected conception so severely you wouldn't ever see alcoholics becoming pregnant.
