Thanks for posting your query.
Please do not be upset. Abusing cocaine only once during the early pregnancy or near conception is not likely to show any effect on the baby.
Implantation happens almost one week after fertilization. Till then the fetus does not come in contact with any maternal blood circulation. Also, it is the chronic cocaine abuse which is harmful for the baby.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
Your last period was on 6th XXXXXXX That means you ovulated near 20th XXXXXXX This makes your conception safe.
Hope my answer is helpful.
