Alcohol During Pregnancy

Nadja - February 17

I drank alcohol before I knew I was pregnant. I recently found out that I'm already 6 weeks pregnant. I didn't experience any nausea or vomiting that's why I didn't know. I only noticed that I had sore nipples and always sleepy, but I never expected to be pregnant. I'm scared, the alcohol might affect the baby.

If you were not aware that you were pregnant and drank alcohol, the best thing you can do now is STOP drinking. If you stop drinking now, the chances of damage are very small.

There is no amount of alcohol that is safe to consume during pregnancy, but the more you drink, the more you raise your baby's chances of having problems.

Everything you eat and drink while you are pregnant affects your baby. If you drink alcohol, it can hurt your baby's growth. Your baby may have physical and behavioral problems that can last for the rest of his or her life. Children born with the most serious problems caused by alcohol have fetal alcohol syndrome.

First step...stop drinking! Alcohol can begin to affect a baby even when you are only 1 or 2 months pregnant. Alcohol contains Teratogen which is a substance known to be harmful to human development.

If at first, you don't know that you're pregnant that's why you drank an alcoholic drink. So, now that you know already, try to avoid it and just be careful because pregnancy is a very serious matter that you need to be vigilant in everything you do.Because it's your baby's health and you that are at stake!

Alcohol during pregnancy must be avoided because it can greatly affects the fetus inside the womb.Fetal alcohol syndrome is a condition in which infants born to mothers who drink during pregnancy.

Sometimes the possibility that may affect to the fetus is the constant drinking of wine. But if it is done moderately, it doesn't harm the fetus.

as far as I know alcohol can give side effects to our brain causing sedation or drunkenness, it causes a general loss of brain tissue. So for me I quit drinking alcohol at the time I get pregnant.


bodyveby - February 28

our liver and stomach make alcohol dehydrogenase. Men and women both produce alcohol dehydrogenase in their livers, but women have very little of this enzyme in their stomachs. this means that if a man and a woman who weigh the same consume equal amounts of alcohol until they are intoxicated, the woman will suffer drunkenness sooner than the man will. In other words, women are at a disadvantage to men when it comes to alcohol consumption.

the effects of the alcohol to the brain may cause sedation or drunkenness, it causes general loss of brain tissue. There is a specific condition of the brain called alcoholic dementia, in which individuals develop difficulty swallowing, suffer impaired problem-solving , and have difficulty in manipulating subjects. And all these things can affect the fetus inside the womb.

Alcohol is the most frequently abused drug in the world. It is the substance that has been discussed frequently in scientific literature and has been the focus of a large amount of research. Many of those who read media reports regarding the effects of alcohol are confused.
Pregnant woman might endangered the fetus inside the womb.

My advice to those woman who are pregnant. As early as possible stop drinking alcohol.
Alcohol extracts a heavy price from personal health. This goes for teens as well as adults. Young people who grow up in nonalcoholic homes are less likely to have problems with alcohol when they reach adulthood. A parent's example can make a big difference.

Yes, an alcohol can affect the baby. that's why pregnant woman is advice not to drink alcohol, it can really damaged the nervous system of the baby and to some other parts of the body.
