Patient : Hi, I am 27 weeks pregnant. I was thrown out by my parnter at 9 weeks and in finding this difficult im ashamed to say i turned to alcohol at 10 weeks pregnant. At first this was binge drinking (3 glasses of wine a night) once a week but since 16 weeks this crept up to binge drinking (3 glasses of wine a night) 2-3 times a week. Im worried this will cause FAS, will my baby be effected? Please help.
