    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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!
