Alcohol when pregnant

Hi guys I'm looking some positive feedback if there is any. I didn't find out I was pregnant until 28 weeks-Massive shock. I was on birth control and still getting periods, I'm slightly over weight so no noticeable bump. I'm currently 34 weeks. My anxiety is through the roof as I've been drinking most weekends up until I found out. Usually one bottle of wine every Saturday night. I'm worried sick that my baby is going to have Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. I've explained everything to my consultant and all scans look perfect so far but he can't guarantee anything until baby is here. Has any had/heard of a similar situation with a positive outcome?

I can understand your anxiety and I know it’s easy to say but I think I would listen to your consultant when he/she says your baby will be fine.

I also didn’t know I was pregnant (found out earlier than you did) and was worried as had been binge drinking especially in the first trimester. Dd was and is perfect.

Easy to say I know but please try and relax (anxiety won’t do him/her any good) and enjoy the rest of your pregnancyFlowers
