14 weeks pregnant and wasn't aware of the no alcohol recommendation so been drinking 1/4 cup wine twice a week. Have I harmed the fetus?

14 weeks pregnant and wasn't aware of the no alcohol recommendation so been drinking 1/4 cup wine twice a week. Have I harmed the fetus?

Doubtful: Statistically, many women are 'in your same shoes' and have had some alcohol while not knowing they were pregnant yet. Small amounts such as 2 glasses a week and of wine, should carry no real risk. That being said, we do know that alcohol in general, if taken often and certainly in excess can harm the developing baby, especially in the 1st trimester. Congratulations, and best wishes.

Unlikely to caus har: 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.

33 yr old just found out she's pregnant, she's a cigarette smoker, wine and beer drinker everyday. What are the risks even if she quits now.?
