I felt overwhelmed with guilt when I found out I was pregnant, because I had a "few too many" a couple of nights before.  This was a shocking experience for me because of all the previous years that I spent without getting pregnant.  I was so scared of what damage I might have caused to the baby.  I was reassured that the baby was not harmed because I STOPPED as SOON as I found out.

You would not believe the number of people (some in my family as well) that told me that it is OK to drink in moderation while pregnant.  NOT ME!!  I would NEVER EVER do that.  

Maybe you should go ahead and stop drinking now.  That is what I would do if I were trying to conceive.

I drank until I got a + test :)  And I'm a big beer drinker... As soon as I get a + I stop.

Well, 20 years ago I too had "a few too many" and lo and behold found out I was pregnant. I was scared to death about what damage I could have done to the baby. The doctor tried to reassure me that because it was so early it was ok. I now have an extremely bright, funny great 19 year old son who's in his 2nd year of college right now! :)

if i had completely stopped drinking while TTC, i would've not had a drink for a very long time. you never long how long it will take for you to conceive, so the occasional drink should be fine, in my opinion. there were a few occasions like a wedding where i indulged a bit more than normal, and if it was close to when my period was due i would take an hpt to make sure i wasn't. but that was just me being paranoid.

I conceived my daughter on the weekend of my 21st birthday, and from then until I found out I was pregnant I drank alot every weekend, and on most week nights too (everyone wanted to celebrate with me!)  As soon as I got a positive, I stopped.  My dd is four months now and is perfect!!  I wouldn't think a few while trying is a big deal.
