I am about 13 or 14 weeks pregnant, in my first 11-12 weeks I was doing cocaine and drinking often. Will this cause serious problems with my baby? I haven't done any drugs or even drank since Feb 5th. I am unsure of continuing this pregnancy for reasons other then having done drugs but am also having a really hard time deciding because of the drug use and the chance of my baby having serious defects or health issues. I am in Canada, can I get one of those blood tests that will tell you if you have a healthy baby? Or is that only available to women over the age of 35 or with family history. I am 24 years old, I wouldn't say I'm extremely healthy but I'm not unhealthy, I am a labourer so I do get my exercise. I am also a smoker but have really cut down and plan to quit asap. Any thoughts or info you can give me would really be helpful. I am so confused Sad
