This. It feels wrong to not have a full glass or two, but I don't want to have that much. I'd rather just turn down the sip than want to have more.

Seriously, like... no more than a tablespoon or two. Nothing that even qualifies as a drink most likely.

Re: Do you drink alcohol when you know you're pregnant?

The day I found out I was pregnant with ds2 (I was only 12DPO or something) me and DH went out for sushi and had some sake. Our last hoorah for 9 months! Other than that, no, I never have. I just don't like the taste of alcohol when I'm pregnant.

I voted no ... I have never had even a sip while pregnant or BFing. However... I don't think a glass of wine etc would hurt anything. Also if I was pregnant and felt the beginnings of a bladder infection... I would drink a beer each night till it was cleared up.

Re: Do you drink alcohol when you know you're pregnant?

I don't normally but this pregnancy I have been working as a food taster and our current project is wine (red and white). We don't swallow as we taste alot of wine per two hour session, if we did everyone would be way drunk. Also not much of it is very appetising. The smell though will knock you out. It was not very pleasant when I was in the first trimester.

I didn't at all with my other pregnancies, but this time I have had a couple (2-3) sips of wine a few times.
I wouldn't drink at all, even sips, in the first trimester, and probably not until past 20 weeks. But I think a couple sips is okay, and definitely a drink in the last couple weeks of pregnancy.

I will take a sip or taste here and there but no actual drinking. And I will only do that we'll into my pregnancy. I think I had one sip late into my 2nd tri w/DS and 3-4 about 2 weeks before I delivered him.
