Post subject: Drinking, and finding it hard not too!
My mother died a few years ago and I drank alot to get through it.
The habit, and the need stuck, but massively reduced long before i was pregnant. I only have a guinness or two now and its more than twice a week, but i decided to do more research and didn't realise how likely it is to damage the baby and I'm not sure if i have over done it, I'm 5 months pregnant and not once have a drank enough to even be tipsey!
So I'm hoping that there are others who drank regular but carfully and have healthy babies.
I do not intend to touch another drop from now!

I'm feeling full of worry now.

It sounds like you have done really well to cut down on your drinking. I would try not to worry too much as it does not sound like you have been having loads! Speak to your midwife or GP if you need some support.

I know back in the day they used to encuorage pregnant women to drink a half of guiness a day due to the iron content Very Happy xx
