View Full Version : I didn't know....
Just found out I am 5 weeks pregnant! YAY :yelclap: BUT....i just cant stop thinking about in the last few weeks i have been drinking alcohol as i didnt know i was pregnant. I had a few birthdays in that time so it wasnt just one or two drinks! I have had quite a bit in that time, not to mention going to the races, hmmmmm :o
I keep feeling so guilty that i have harmed my baby and i cant shake that feeling :(
anyone have any reassurance for me?? please!
The baby is not actually attached to your bloodstream till 6 weeks .
So that should make u feel a little better :)
ok its not ideal but u werent to know.
And to make u feel better, i had my 18th combined with my boyfrend at the times 21st and i drank way to much... A carton and a half of vodka pre mix cans plus pretty much anything anyone put in front of me and found out i was pregnant 2 weeks later.
My ds is now six,fighting fit, no health problems and never has.
Not saying i'd ever drink thru my pregnancy,but it happened by mistake and all turned out good. Which i am thankful for.
It's usually not a big deal in the very early weeks. There's been two posts in this forum in the last week or so with the same question. Maybe search for them and put your mind at ease. :)
Firstly congrats on your pregnancy!
Dont stress, nothing passes the placenta til 6 weeks :)
I used to smoke and I went away for the weekend to a holiday house with some friends for my birthday and had a huge weekend long bender (i dont normally drink, i normally used to drive) I would have been about 3-4 weeks pregnant when all that happened, bub is perfect
Smack bang on six weeks If i so much as looked at a cigarette I would be sick, i rekcon it was my body telling me it was bad for the baby :P
DOnt stress, just avoid it now.
