OK ... so I JUST found out I was pregnant earlier tonight and from calculations w/ out a doctor visit, I am about 5 or 6 weeks pregnant...now, in those past weeks, I've drank quite a bit and I am wondering if this will effect my baby...

Congratulations! I totally understand being worried. My husband and I went to Napa wine tasting and when we came back, I found out I was pregnant. I was about 3 weeks pregnant while in Napa. We weren't trying to get pregnant so of course I panicked and was so anxious about it for months until I was finally able to let it go. My baby is now 2 months old and is perfectly healthy. There are just some things that you have to put out of your mind and relax or it will drive you mad. I mean, you didn't know you were pregnant and you won't drink anymore now that you know. I really wouldn't stress about it. Just my opinion anyways.

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I think you and your baby will be just fine. I'd talk it over with your doctor so that he/she knows and I'm sure they will tell you the same thing.
