I used cocaine in my first five weeks of pregnancy. Is this likely to have doen any damage, such as increased risk of fetal abnormalities?

There is no strong evidence to suggest a higher risk of fetal malformations with cocaine in the first trimester (13 weeks) of pregnancy. But cocaine use later in pregnancy is strongly linked to preterm delivery, high blood pressure and placental abruption, all of which can be very bad for baby.
