Shaking, crying, feel like throwing up.

OMG I can't believe it and I screwed up royaly. After my 70+ day cycle last month I didn't expect much from this one. And I had given up. I resolved to throwing out baby stuff and was gearing myself up to sell stuff this summer. I am on day 36 this month, but like I said my cycles are screwy. On the way home I stopped at the bar nad had 2 beers. When I got home I had to pee (the beers right??) so I had the urge to POAS just to put the possibility out of my mind. Well my pee was super light (again, the beers) but I stuck the stick in anyway. The line was there before the control and is almost as dark. OM freakin G I am pg!!! I can't believe I was stupid enough to drink those beers and I dran almost a bottle of wine this weekend. Oh please send me prayers if you can spare them. I am in tears I may have screwed this up, even though I know when I have done everything right I have still lost babies. I have been a little nauseous the last few days, but my son and husband both had a wicked stomach bug and I figured I was getting it too. I really had no hope for a bfp!! It has been 21 months since I have had a bfp and it's been 39 months since our loss after we started TTC again.

Congratulations! Don't worry about the drinks. So many people do things like drink, take medicines they shouldn't have taken, etc. before they find out they are pg and go on to have perfectly healthy babies. If it makes you feel any better, I have a friend who had to have an MRI or CAT scan while she was pg and she was so scared that harmed her baby - her daughter is perfectly healthy. My mom didn't know she was pg yet and she went to an amusement park with my middle sister and me and did the roller coasters. We even laughed at the signs that said "Don't ride if you have heart problems, back injuries, or are pregnant." My youngest sister is perfectly healthy at almost 20 years old.

I'm sure everything will be just fine! Congratulations! Enjoy this pregnancy!

I wouldn't worry about the drinks - I know, easier said than done.

Barb! That's wonderful news!!!! Congrats! Try not to beat yourself up about the beers and wine. Baby hasn't developed an umbilical cord yet...when I was pg with DD #1 (I was a stupid college student...& didn't know I was preggo until I was 8 weeks along), I had a few too many drinks one night. DD is fine. You're in my thoughts. SBV to you!!!!

Barb, take a deep breath and calm down. My sister had a lot to drink just before getting her first BFP (like days before, and she didn't test until she was like

Barb, it's a good thing I am typing and not talking because my jaw is on the floor! :) CONGRATS! Please do NOT worry about those beers! About a week before I found out I was pg with DD, we went to a party and I got HAMMERED - like binge drinking tequilla right out of the bottle for hours - drinking. And it was FINE! You finally did it, girl!! ((huge hugs))
