Researchers looked for common effects of alcohol on pregnancy: low birth weight high maternal blood pressure preeclampsia smaller-than-expected size. Instead, early alcohol exposure may have as much ill effect on fetal brain development as alcohol exposure throughout pregnancy. Moreover, the persistence of drinking is associated with a worsening of defects in the second trimester, resulting in a loss of plasticity (ability to change and develop) of fetal brain tissue.

What All of This Tell Us. Drinking alcohol in the first three months of pregnancy can cause the baby to have abnormal facial features. Growth and central nervous system problems (e.g., low birthweight, behavioral problems) can occur from drinking alcohol anytime during pregnancy.

The baby’s brain is developing throughout pregnancy and can be affected by exposure to alcohol at any time. If a. Clearly alcohol use can cause major problems for the pregnant woman and her baby. While not drinking any alcohol during pregnancy is the safest choice, small amounts of alcohol early in pregnancy may be less risky to the mother’s health and the health of their babies than previously believed.

If it. For decades, researchers have known that heavy drinking during pregnancy can cause birth defects.

Low Alcohol Tolerance Some women report that they have a much lower tolerance for alcohol very early in pregnancy before they know they are pregnant or before they can even reliably test. (ie: one drink will make them feel tipsy or drunk) For some this is a really convincing sign.
