Tested last week and got a negative result, had a wedding to go to on Saturday so let my hair down and had more than a few drinks. Still no AF so have now tested again and got a postive - am now in a state of total panic as wouldn't have drunk the champagne/wine over the weekend if I had known. Has anyone else done anything similar or can put my mind at rest? thanks
I went on a complete bender the weekend before I found out I as pregnant and this included taking pain killers the next morning for a monster hangover. DD was unplanned which is my excuse, but she's fine and my excess didn't cause any issues.
I got very very drunk 3 days before I found out I was pregnant - had no idea until I realised AF was late. Embryo doesn't implant straight away or start taking anything from you for a couple of weeks (? AFAIK) - and my nearly 5 year old has no problems, other than eczema which I had as a child, so dont worry yourself - and Congratulations!!!
Thanks both - that is just what I needed to hear - not telling anyone in RL yet, and DP reckoned it must have happened to loads of people, but it hit me like a ton of bricks, and then googled what happens to babies whose mothers drink which was a big mistake I know - scared me to death!
I got hammered the weekend before my bfp (am 30wks today). Midwife said not to fret as your placenta doesn't attach until at least week 5 if not later so there's no transfer between you and the baby until then. Congratulations, btw
Thanks again ladies - it is lovely of you all to reassure me like this - I hope I can now start to relax and actually feel like celebrating, rather than thinking 'what have you done???' Congratulations to all of you currently pg, and thank you for taking the time to message me, I really appreciate it.
Not joking here, I just found out last week that I am pregnant. I had a scan today and they reckon I'm as far as 21-22 weeks!! I'm most ashamed to say I have drunk a shocking amount since conception but have been told all is looking food.
I got a bfn on the Friday, so went out with the girls and got totally wrecked!!! Took me ages to recover the next and I was a little tearful, so tested again and got a bfp...... dd is nearly 5 and perfect .
I also have a friend who went on a week long all girls holiday and got a bfp two days after she got back!! All fine again.
I think you have to drink an awful lot consistently for it to cause damage to the baby.
