In brief: Alcohol & pregnancy.

It does not work that way.
There have been studies in how much alcohol is ok to drink during pregnancy and there have been no consistent results so the recommendation is no alcohol is considered safe at this time. That you drink once should not be a cause for immediate miscarriage. However if you keep drinking you may cause severe fetal damage and other complications.
