Hi. with my first pregancy i was 8 weeks before i knew i was pregnant and was drinking every weekend with mates, i dont smoke but alcohol is the bigger issue when your pregnant when your baby is developing. my boy is fine, although he has a small vsd (heart defect) but its common, its a small hole in the musclular wall and aprently will grow out over time as his muscles get bigger. vsd can be caused from alcohol in pregnancy. but i know a few people who drank when unaware they were pregnant and they were fine, i wouldnt worry, the main thing is to be healthy now as the babys taking in more now.
hope all goes well. x
