I'm so concerned, worried, and scared with a problem extremely similiar to "uhohmum". I was usuing a small amount of cocaine daily for the first 5 weeks of this pregnancy. I am about 7weeks now and stopped immediatley when i found out. When I went to the Dr the baby was 6 weeks and 2 days old with a heartbeat Thank You God, but i also know that cld change at any time considering i had a misscarraige Dec. 15th. my questions are what harm have I caused this baby "hopefully not any" and do i continue on with this pregnancy? I have never had an abortion and I really do not want to. lastly i want to tell my Dr.s about the cocaine use and be honest withhem so baby and I get best possible care but my experience with that is they doint use it to help they use it to call social services and completly overlook what is really important. I am so scared if anyone out there cares to respond, do i contnue on with this pregnancy as i would like to and how much if any (hopefully NoT)damage have i caused my baby?
