A 32-year-old female asked:

I was in a meeting with a lady that was drinking a lot of alcohol during our 3 hours of meeting. i was breathing the fumes from her mouth for the hole time (i tried not). i'm worried now that it was bad for the baby. i'm on my 6 week.

Ignore it: The chances that baby had any significant exposure are next to zero. I wouldn't loose sleep over this issue. Just avoid drinking yourself.
