i was reading through the responses to Orange1414's post about alcohol exposure, which i found to be incredibly helpful. some of you made mention about alcohol being the worst drug to be exposed to prenatally and someone commented about a seminar where she learned that drinking early on in the pregnancy is the strongest risk factor for FAS.
but then i hear about all these women who are pregnant and are always saying things about how the baby and the mom don't share a blood supply in the beginning, so not to worry about getting smashed before finding out you're pregnant.
i guess i'm just getting confused.
my husband and i are filling out our profile key, saying what we are and aren't comfortable with dug/alcohol wise. intially we were thinking we were basically not comfortable with any drug exposure and we were okay with light alcohol exposure, through all trimesters. but, now that i'm hearing these things, i'm beginning to wonder if we really would be comfortable with any alocohol exposure. everything just seems so risky....
