    Obviously I can't test yet, but I have a hunch that I am pregnant. If I am I would be 3 weeks. I don't want to stop my meds if I don't have to but I was wondering what effects meds, alcohol, and/or caffeine would have or if its too early to have an effect.

    They can all definitely have an effect. Early pregnancy a lot is developing.

    If you think you could be pregnant, stop drinking alcohol and cut back on caffeine (should have only about 1-2 cups a day).

    As for your meds, talk to your doctor right away to find out if you need to change your dosage or stop taking them.

    Finally - get on a multivitamin - pre-natal or my doctor told me the flinstones are great

    Good luck!
