In brief: Yes

There is no known safe level of alcohol consumption in pregnancy.
You should not drink alcohol when pregnant. The "slimming pill" should not be taken during pregnancy as the recommendation is to observe a well balanced diet during pregnancy and not try to lose weight during pregnancy.

However, the "sensitive" time for the fetus is during organ formation. This usually occurs between 6-12 weeks (1.5 months to 3 months). It is unlikely you have damaged your pregnancy if less than 6 weeks from your Last Menstrual period. DO avoid alcohol completely.

No ALCOHOL-NO diet pills: both can endanger your pregnancy.
