This month we've had a wedding , family lunches, two work nights out, and a couple of glasses at home

Felt a bit odd so just did a test and am pregnant again shock

I'm delighted as DS is 20mo and har been thinking about it but now anxious about my boozing

Anyone any advice?

Very common. I wouldn't worry about it too much, if you're just a few weeks along, there's no placenta for alcohol to cross, anyhow.

A couple of days before I found out I was pregnant, I went on a huge bender at works and drank so much voddy I puked (I wasn't late yet).

I didn't know that about the placenta - shall look up

I guess I just need something to worry about and am settling on this!

Aw thanks blush

Aww.. I wouldn't worry about it. I am all the alcohol drinking is how a lot of pregnancies occur in the first place.

Congratulations by the way!!

I had a large glass of white wine and a bottle of Becks after work and then did a pregnancy test when I got home. Positive!

Thanks all

Have decided to stop worrying about it right now seeing as I can't do anything about it. Will buy some folic acid and try to get my head round having two shock

I was a 70+ units a week kind of gal and the night before I did a test completely expecting it to be negative I had a couple of gin and tonics and a bottle of red, ds1 is completely fine and I know lots of my friends who didn't find out until quite late and straight after Christmas etc. Congratulationsgrin

When I had DC1 I was only really 'dating' his dad and we thought we were being careful. Effectively we spent our time drinking and erm ... shagging! He was a bar manager and we drank a lot!! I found out at 12 weeks and had been drinking heavily throughout that time and DS is fine. I daren't touch another drop for the rest of my pregnancy. I'm sure everything will be fine.

For the record and just in case someone knows my mn name I don't behave like this normally, just had a mad few months which just 'happened' to coincide with DSs surprising conception! grin

Try not to worry. It happens to most people apart from those who have sworn off alcohol whilst trying to conceive. I got completely hammered at least 3 times between conception and finding out I was pregnant.
