    Default i had a drink. i know im pregnant.

    Ok, so i had a drink and a half (different days) whilst i know im about 6 weeks pregnant. And i feel sh|thouse about it.
    Celebration drinks. DH and i had been swapping drinks all night. Untill i was alone with the guest of honour and he bought me a drink and sat with me. I know all the things i could have said or done to get out of not having that drink. But i didnt. I wanted to seem normal. It would be really odd for me to refuse a drink around this person anyways. I enjoyed every mouthfull of that beer too.

    There. i admitted to it.

    Don't beat yourself up

    They say one drink here and there is probably quite safe.

    Maybe try and avoid situations like that in the future so you dont need to worry.

    They say a standard drink is ok. Though I personally abstain all together, particuarly in the first trimester as that's when bub is creating all major organs

    This. The most I had was a mouthful of wine at a wedding for the toast, I completely abstain. But one drink won't hurt you, as long as you keep it very minimal

    Your baby is receiving all nutrition from the yolk sac at this stage - the placenta isn't even fully formed yet, so nothing you eat or drink is going to your baby. It is natures way of protecting the embryo in the early weeks in case the mother isn't aware she is pregnant yet. Don't beat yourself up about it.

    You had a mouthful of beer?
    I completely cut out all alcohol when pregnant but know people who continue to have a glass of wine daily. My cousin told me that she drank a glass or two of wine every second day or so.. she has two perfectly healthy children.
    I wouldn't recommend it, but don't beat yourself up over it. Heaps of people don't yet know that they are expecting as early as 6 weeks and do A LOT worse than a glass of beer.

    I'm not a drinker full stop, especially pg, but it was one drink. Now if she was drunk and later in the pg I may agree more with you.

    It's fine. It's one drink. It's not like you're secretly swilling wine from a bottle every day.
