No, 2 drinks can’t harm your baby! You’re fine, it’s ok!

You should be fine, doctors say now days 1 to 2 drinks are okay to drink while pregnant.  If you are really worried contact your doctor

I would think you’re fine.  It was a small amount.  Have you called your OB?

It’s also possible that the first one was virgin and she just forgot on the second one, so maybe you only had one drink. But, either way, two drinks that you didn’t mean to have aren’t going to hurt anything.

@Charlies_Angel:  You’re probably fine. Tons of people drink when they are 8 weeks pregnant before they even KNOW they’re pregnant and their babies turn out just fine! Don’t beat yourself up over it. It was one drink, you didn’t have a whole bottle of wine or take a bunch of shots! You’ll be okay!

Your baby will be 100% fine.  However I would have spoken to the manager at the restaurant.  Serving alcohol when someone asked for a nonalcoholic drink is a BIG deal.  Some people have religious restrictions, some have allergies, and some just might not want to drink.  You don’t want to get anyone fired or anything, but it needs to be brought to their attention so that it does not happen to anyone else.  Luckily the drink you had is also one of the lightest on alcohol content.  Feel better, everything will be ok!

I would want that bitch’s job!  Excuse the language, but it’s true.  


I DO think you’ll probably be just fine, but I still would definitely make this woman’s very harmful mistake known.

@Charlies_Angel:  You will be fine. Women in other countries drink a moderate amount of alcohol while pregnant without harming their babies. Doctor will say no amount of alcohol is “safe” because they can’t endorse people drinking while pregnant…. partly because some people would take that as license to drink all the time while pregnant, and partly because there is no exact amount that is *known* to cause harm, and it can be different for different women.They are just being overly cautious and don’t want to get blamed for someone’s kid having a birth defect.

You and baby are DEFINITELY fine!

The first one was virgin, and the second one was apparently light on alcohol! And you only had ONE… Not a line of shots or anything!

I think no harm will come to your baby because you’ve had two drinks! Cocktails don’t contain that much alcohol anyway. A similar thing happened to my SIL (she ate some desert that contained alcohol), she panicked and called her doctor who actually found the incident quite amusing 🙂 My niece is now 8 and perfect. 

Relax 🙂

Deep breaths! stress is worse for your baby…I’m not a doctor but i’m going to say i think you are okay. i’m sure the small amount of alchohol they put in frozen drinks like that, has not harmed your baby, But i would mentioned it to your doctor at your next visit.

And it is usually rum in a strawberry Daquiri. but only like 1 oz… Some people don’t even know they are pregnant at 8 weeks…

Before you go calling the waitress a bitch, please be aware that she isn’t the one making the drink. She could have put the order in for virgin and the bartender didn’t follow directions. The waitress isn’t going to sip the drink to make sure…

@Charlies_Angel:  Relax.  It was one drink.  First of all, having one drink while you’re pregnant is NOT as harmful as Americans make it out to be.  My cousin is a well educated ICU Neuro-nurse.  When she was pregnant, she had ONE glass of champagne at Christmas.

When I was pregnant (unknowingly), right around 6-8 weeks, it was my bday.  To put it bluntly:  I got hammered.  No, I didn’t know I was pregnant.  But it doesn’t change anything- you just happened to know.  

What happened was absolutely nothing to worry about, unless you enjoy being stressed.
