Post subject: Advice Please......Drinking and trying to conceive
My husband and I have only starting trying for a baby, and now are waiting to see if I get my period around the 1st of January.
However with Xmas and New Year Parties, I don't know if it is safe to Drink a little bit. I may not even be pregnant, but if I am, am I doing harm to my baby so early in the picture. (it would only be 2wks after ovulation)
Any advice would be great.

I have taken some classes for my Bachelor of Ed degree in the special needs field. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome can occur at any time during a pregnancy. There is no firm evidence as when the most damage can be done but it is believed to happen earlier when the organs etc are forming. Alcohol crosses the placenta.
My advice: DON'T DRINK at all during pregnancy. It's not worth it. Not for you or for your child.
