Drinking in early pregnancy

Patient : I just recently found out that I'm about 7 weeks pregnant. I'm terribly concerned because before I knew I was pregnant I was drinking fairly regularly. I was going out about 2 times per week and drinking between 2 and 7 drinks each time. I has since stopped drinking entirely but am extremely worried about the damage I may have already done. I know there's a risk for FAS when it comes to alcohol and pRegnancy and Im planning on seeing a doctor this week but I just can't stop thinking about the harm I may have cause
