With the office opening back up I've been meeting up with coworkers for a few drinks over the last couple of weeks and I just got a positive test 😳😳. We were open to having a baby but didn't think it would happen so quickly so I was having up to 3 drinks when I went out. Meeting with my OB tomorrow but would appreciate any words of wisdom in the meantime

It’s totally fine. Nothing to worry about before 6 weeks when the placenta is formed. And if you are even a bit after that I think you’ll be fine. I got black out wasted at a wedding before I knew I was pregnant 🙈

It’s all doom and gloom when they’re warning you. But when you go to them with a real concern, the doctors are very reassuring. I drank almost a bottle of wine while pregnant, because I had no idea. I was told everything is fine. But do not do it again. 😂

Congratulations! I didn’t know I was pregnant for months and went out quite a few times, ate oysters, and wasn’t taking prenatals. As long as you weren’t blacking out regularly and eat a reasonably healthy diet you are most likely a-ok. My baby was born perfectly healthy. I was concerned about the same thing but my doctor was reassuring.

Same here. I didn’t find out till like 9 weeks and I was eating and drinking and my son is perfect.

You should be ok! My mum was 6 months into her pregnancy before finding out she was pregnant 😅😅 my sister is a prodigy child 😅

I found out I was pregnant with my second after a night of heavy drinking. He's 15 and perfectly fine. Even in an advanced academic program in his high school. Don't worry about the alcohol, residual of our was before you knew. Can't do anything about it, and I'm sure you're not going to continue drinking. You'll be fine.

Totally fine! Congrats!
