Drank on the weekends up until 16 weeks pregnant. Any imput or similar stories?


Hi everyone. I didn't know i was pregnant until about 16 weeks. I am a healthy person sunday thru friday but I drink lots of shots on on the weekends ( saturday). When i found out at 16 weeks I imediatly stopped. I told my OBGYN and she said everything looks fine and the baby SHOULD be ok. WHen I looked at the calender I went out and partied like every other weekend so about 7 times. I think about it every day and feel horrible and pray I've done nothing to my baby. I am now 25 weeks and completely stopped and taking prenatels and drinking plenty of water.

Does anyone else have a similar story? Would love to hear it. or hear some imput. Thank you!

A friend of mine has a condition where she doesn;t even know she is pregnant until she goes into labour. Her periods carry on she has no symptons, she is very big anyway so doesn;t notice any weight gain and she drank all the way through both of her pregnancies and both babies have turned out great. Obviously if you know you are pregnant it's not worth the risk but I know a doctor who says that the risks are over exaggerated. Obviously you have stopped now and are being really healthy so tyr not to worry about it x

Well....first off try not to worry too much!!! It's stress on yourself, and therefore stress on your little one inside.

Before I found out I was pregnant, I was doing shots myself every other weekend and even smoked cigarettes! I was a heavy smoker, let me tell you. I'd go through a pack in just 2-3 days!!!! THAT'S SOOOO BAAADDDD! And I've been smoking like this for a few years. Imagine how I felt once I found out I was pregnant??? Just as bad as you are feeling right now. But the doctor saw the baby and said it's fine....hormones are fine...heartbeat's FINE and STRONG!

Your liver works to also detoxify toxins in the blood and so with your drinking before you found out....ah....don't even worry about it too much. Doctors would see some abnormalities in scans and blood works. So....please don;t worry too much. Keep yourself healthy for yourself and your baby. I quit the bad habits once I found out. They're not good for your health anyway so yeah...Your baby is a wake up call, in a way, to drop previous bad habits and to better yourself for yourself and little one.

im confused ? you drank until you were 16 weeks pregnant, found out you were pregnant, but continued drinking shots etc until now (25weeks?)
or you havent had a drink since 16 weeks and you are now 25 weeks?

If your Dr says things are looking fine then you should try to relax. Its not like you are drinking now and a lot of the effects from fetal alcohol syndrome come from drinking later in pregnancy and its also sustained drinking every single day which cause the greatest damage which you didn't do at any point.

You can't turn back the clock and undo what has been done and anyway it sounds as though baby is just fine time to relax and enjoy the rest of your pregnancy.

Hey I didn't find out I was pregnant with my first till after 20 weeks! Was still tiny, no belly, periods, not a single symptom, well actually that's not true I fainted once!

Any way I drank and smoked alot in the first 20 odd weeks and my girl is fine, I did have a very premature birth (one of the shortest pregnancies) she came into the world at 27 weeks. But made it through fine and is now perfect
