I just found out I'm 11 weeks pregnant, and I've been smoking cigs and drinking mnt.dew and lots of coffee. have I hurt my baby? I have stopped everything but I didn't know if I already caused damage, so stressed and worried. Please tell my if there is anything I can do at this point. Thank you, worried mama.
You should quit smoking, drinking and also excessive coffee, hence forth. This will be necessary throughout pregnancy and even while you will be nursing your baby. An ultrasound scan must be done to find out whether there has been any effect on the baby. However all abnormalities are not picked up on ultrasound. Consult your Doctor.
Take care and good luck.
