Do you or Did you Drink Alcoholic Beverages while Pregnant?

I'll admit, I've had a couple beer here an there. It's my second pregnancy. My first I had absolutely none, not even coffee.

I have done some research and apparently a lot of studies show that even a glass of wine a day is safe.

Re: Do you or Did you Drink Alcoholic Beverages while Pregnant?

I drank a glass of wine when I was past due because my midwife thought it might help me relax. I don't think it helped.

Other than that I didn't drink alcohol and I also didn't drink while ai was nursing so I spent a large chunk of time being alcohol free.

Now I'll have a drink occasionally when out with my dh. One's about my limit. Total lightweight.

Re: Do you or Did you Drink Alcoholic Beverages while Pregnant?

I almost never drink anyway - only occasionally. I had a few sips of dh's beer once early in pregnancy and it seems like I recall one other glass of wine somewhere in there but that was it. I did drink while nursing occasionally.

DH is training to be a surgeon and is VERY careful about everything, so he wasn't big in the idea. He is, however, very reasonable, so I did research and also concluded a bit of alcohol wouldn't hurt, which is why I had as much as I did, but once you are obviously pregnant, I wasn't comfortable with people SEEING me with alcohol. Even if I think it's ok, most people don't, and most people might think I'm willfully harming my baby, and I couldn't stand that idea.

Absolutely not. To me, that is deliberately putting your baby at risk.

No I did not either, I know in other countries women have wine with their dinner all the time being pregnant with no problems

Re: Do you or Did you Drink Alcoholic Beverages while Pregnant?

I had half a glass of wine a couple of times in my third trimester, but never more than that. My husband is from Argentina and it is common there to have a glass of wine here and there while pregnant, which is what his relatives adhere to. It doesn't seem to cause any problems, but I certainly understand the none is better than some approach when it comes to babies.

Hahahha, I know. I was pregnant at a wedding once and they brought me a glass of sparkling cider so I could participate in the toasts and the amount of looks I got wasn't worth it! I couldn't explain myself to everyone .
