Congratulations to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the news of their first child! She’s lucky she knew she was expecting before New Year’s Eve before getting caught with champagne in her hand and ending up on the cover of every magazine for drinking while pregnant!. For all of you that did not know you were pregnant and had a few drinks over the holidays, do not stress. It has not been proven that a few drinks in your early pregnancy will cause significant damage to the development of your child. Fetal alcohol syndrome, which is a pattern of physical and mental defects that can happen to your fetus is one of the significant risks of drinking while pregnant, however it is associated with high levels of alcohol consumption; it has not been proven that low levels of alcohol use cause such birth defects. In fact, a majority of people that have not planned out their pregnancy in advance will have had a few drinks they wished they had not once finding out they are expecting. If that is you, do not worry…your not alone! Once you know you are pregnant, make sure to avoid all alcohol until your bun in the over is done! Hope everyone had a safe and healthy new year. To all of you expecting in 2013, congratulations!!!
