Alcohol, Brie and Pate during TWW

Postby Freakylady » Thu Sep 24, 2009 2:21 am

Hi there

I was on holiday in France during my tww hence the drinking ( 3 drinks a day for three days - we were with friends...) and eatin pate and brie

do you think it could have harmed my little bean?

I read somewhere that for the first 4/5 weeks it doesnt matter because the baby is fed by the yolk sac??

I know I know im terrible and i really shouldnt have....

I think your right about the yolk sac... Also I think lots of ladies find themselves in this position.... I think its VERY unlikely u have done any damage...I think in terms of food people are a bit over the top with what you can and cant eat... In terms of alcohol some women still have a wine occasionally when preg.. Ive decided not to but I think if you dont drink from now on u and bean will be fine....

Good Luck and Happy healthy 9 months

I had this when I found out I was pregnant was ds, as I'd been to a wedding in the 2ww and had quite a lot to drink. The doc told me during the wait the babies are such simple bundles of cells that very little can affect them, it's when they start developing organs etc that they are more vulnerable.
