Harmful medication to baby

I would like to know how harmful is pain medication and alcohol to the baby during the first few weeks? I use quite a lot of headche tablets and drink 1 glass of wine a week, at most. I am about 4-5 weeks pregnant and now I am concerned that I could have unintentionally harmed the baby while I didn' t know that I was pregnant

If you were taking Panado, this would not harm the fetus and one glass of wine a week would probably not have caused harm either.

Sal, please post your question separately.

Best wishes
