Your actually pregnant when you dont even know it yet, I mean its too early for the test to show...So you'll be pregnant for about 3 weeks, not even knowing it because the baby is too small to show up in a pregnancy test.

You'll be drinking for about 3 weeks every friday, not even knowing that your pregnant.

Being Rude
How come I got such a rude respone to my queston, I don't think that you should be talked down to for asking a question, maybe it would be better for me just to do what I think and not ask for advice from women that might know more then me. I don't think anyone should be rude to anyone else for asking a question. Also I have heared that the baby isn't even living off of your body in the first two weeks thats why I thought it would be ok.

Not you, she was talking about pc.

And to answer the question, I say, as long as u keep the drinks to like one or two u should be ok, but if there is any sign that u might be pregnant, don't drink. Women go for months without knowing sometimes, and continue to drink and stuff, and still have healthy babies. Just keep it minimal...

Honestly I really don't think its a good idea to be drinkin when you are trying to get pregnant because if you were pregnant you wouldn't know it right away. I think drinking is extremely bad for the baby and honestly I wouldn't do it.

My Dr. Said that drinking any alcohol while trying to get pregnant decreases your chances of actually getting pregnant. And no alcohol is a a safe amount for a developing child. I know it is hard to go out w/ your friends and not drink but if you are serious about getting pregnant not drinking would be a good idea....

i'm not proud of it, but I tied a good weekend on before I found out I was pregnant. That was one thing thaqt haunted my entire pregnant, what if I destroyed nathans life, by getting wasted?

In some women, all it takes is one drink, and others could drink the entire time, and won't do a thing. If your trying to conceive, I wouldn't chance it a bit. I wasn't trying, thats why I drank...I didn't know.
