BFP and having a panic

(19 Posts)

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!!! smile

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 blush- scared me to death!

Seriously do not worry at all - I got remarkably drunk before my bfp - midwives said dont worry.

Congratulations!!

We had an engagement party one weekend then DPs romantic birthday weekend the following one before we found out. Has to be said a lot of booze was put away on both weekends.

Docs said not to worry so I didn't and first scan proved it was all ok. Don't worry about it and CONGRATULATIONS!!! smile

hi, I got totally wasted the night before I got my BFP lol.
Now 23+3 and all totally fine :D x

Thanks you all - feeling very reassured by your comments...will now find something else to panic about I suppose!

Yes I got my first ever BFP at the beginning of January after a pretty alcohol-fuelled new years celebration. DS1 turned out just fine smile

Also got totally wasted the night before.
I'm now 22+2 grin

I got quite drunk before finding out I was pregnant. It was Christmas Day and I'd not long before had a miscarriage. Couple of weeks later BFP. He's a very typical 2 year old now!

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 smile

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.

Congratulations!

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.

PoppysMom Tue 14-Jun-11 06:47:54

Wow Oopsie Congratulations!!
I wish I would have only found out that far gone smile

also went out & got drunk with DS, on the sat night (had a BFN the am) ate raw cake mix on the sunday (and not just a taste of it blush) positive on the tuesday - he's just fine and dandy.

This time, i've had copious amounts of drugs from teeth infections and so far all is looking very good, and bubs is doing well.

The baby is very, very well protected at this point. All will be fine. Congratulations smile

had a 12 hour drinking session with clients followed by work xmas party the week before my BFP! and as it was just before xmas I was eating loads of stilton - everything is fine for me at 29 weeks...

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 grin.

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.
