It is best not to drink while you are pregnant. However you did not know you were pregnant so don't worry yourself about the past (because there is nothing you can do to change it) just make sure that from now on you avoid alcohol, drugs, smoking and second hand smoke. I am sure things will be fine with your baby but as you are obviously concerned, it would be best for you see a qualified doctor.
