I didn't find out until I was 8 weeks, and before that I drank a ton. Not like alcoholic, just got wasted on my birthday and on a vacation. After I found out I stopped of course.

I had drank a little bit a couple weeks before I found out. I was also taking birth control still because I had no idea I was pregnant and obviously not ttc!

Yep, durig two of my pregnancies. Both pregnancies were healthy and both babies were healthy and still are. I was on meds for the first month with this pregnancy and the medication is a pretty dangerous one. I also got drunk once.

I drank. I was about 3 weeks on New years eve and I didn't know so I had a good time. Then a few beers here and there, but as soon as I even thought I was pregnant I stopped.

I was doing alot! I was dinking, smoking cigs, partying, and going to school full-time......Im also type2 diabetic which I was not taking good care of before I found out I was pregnant! I miscarried 2yrs ago and that resulted in the diabtes staying with me after the lost of the baby! I didnt realize how depressed I had became over my lost after being told at the age of 14 that I couldnt have kids, When I found out this time around I was expecting I changed everything to better myself for my child! It was a hard struggle cause I was afraid that
I may lose this one but with prayer and strength I have made it and will be giving birth very soon to my little girl ! I thank God for my struggles and allowing me to live my life before becoming a parent at 29yrs of age!! Good luck :)

I got drunk about a week before I found out.
I was also smoking, and gradually quit during the week after the positive.

I know someone who snorted pills and did a little coke before she found out she was pregnant (didn't even find out until the end of the first trimester). Her daughter is Autistic.

I did both of those and my kid is fine.
Granted, I wasn't doing it on a daily basis I don't think. Well not coke anyway.
It might not have anything to do with it though. A lot of autistic kids come from perfectly healthy moms.

I know, I was just saying. There CAN be side affects. Autism is the one thing they can't really pinpoint.

Quoting -Christina-:" was there anything that you were doing/ taking WHILE you were pregnant but did not know it yet? For example smoking ciggs, drugs, taking certain meds, etc?"

I know I am not legally of age to drink, but I was drinking some maily to just "party and celebrate my graduation". I was smoking marijuana, I was taking pills, and doing a smoking almost 2 packs of black and milds a day. I was drinking energy drinks like they were going out of style, and I was drinking lots of coffee. Buttttt before someone says something I Quit as soon as I found out when I was 5 go 6 weeks. Still haunts me that something might be wrong with him, but I quit all of that, except occassionally having a cup of coffee. But I quit as soon as I knew and I am so glad I was able to! Oh and I WON'T be picking up any of the drugs, ever again, and no alcohol until I am 21 if even then!

I didn't know I was pregnant since I had a period the first month pregnancy. I smoked way too many cigs and my friend came in town to visit and we were pretty much smoking weed and steadily drinking Newcastle for the week she was in. I went to the doctor about a week and a half after and I was pregnant. I freaked ouuuut. Then I had a second period and thought I was mc'ing, but I still have a healthy and beautiful baby girl.
