So at that time in pregnancy the drinks have no effect on birth defects or anything like that. In that low dose likely there would be no effect at all since everything is dose related. The only effect could be a miscarriage but that amount really carries little to no risk

Drinking alcohol in excess is harmful to the unborn baby. But social drinking, although discouraged, is not likely to cause any harm. You should not worry about the past, avoid drinking during the rest of your pregnancy and hope for the best.
