Pregnancy Risks

I found out that I am 8 week pregnant on 4/23.  Mixed reaction.  Prior to conception, I had immunization shots (Hep A, Hep B (1 booster only), Typhoid, Polio) - around 2/19.  Traveled to Asia on 3/2.  In March, during the first few weeks abroad, got the cold; took 1-2 pills of Tylenol (Cold & Allergy) & Nyquil.  Took 1/2 pill of Ambien one night.  Had a chest X-ray on 3/11 (immigration purpose).  Was drinking 1-2 small glasses of beer or wine daily for about 2 weeks in early March.  

Am worried about my first pregnancy and would appreciate medical information on risks to the embryo development.  Am considering options in a foreign land.

Same advice here, that early on its pretty tough to cause any problems.  But tell your Dr. about it at your next app. and I am sure he/she will say the same thing.  Congratulations to you.
