    Nah, you - and the little one - are fine. Mother Nature kind of accounts for the fact we women won't always know we're pregnant (and, hence, not on our "best behavior") by having the baby live in it's own little sac for the first couple of weeks. I don't know the timelines exactly, but it's around 5 or 6 weeks (although check that to be sure) that the embryo attaches itself to the uterine wall. THEN you want to place it safe, take your vitaimins, eat well, etc., because at that point, what you eat and drink DOES pass through their system.

    Codeine can still be taken in pregnancy, I take dyhydrocodine for migraine and back pain the midwives just say to take it in moderation as it can cause more issues like constipation for you and stuff, as for drinking a lot of women get drunk before finding out they are expecting best thing to do is stop now! Tell your midwife or doctor that your on the pills and drank and they will give you info but try to relax.
