Hi and thanks for using the forum.

It is not uncommon for women to consume alcohol before they realize that they are pregnant.  Most likely, the few occassions that you consumed alcohol will not affect your baby.  However, it is important to let your ob/gyn know about this and also to abstain from alcohol and drugs (including nicotine) for the remainder of your pregnancy.  Congratulations and good luck.
