I want beer!!

I'm not a drinker. Every once in a blue moon I might have a small glass of wine with dinner, or a sip of my hubbys beer. That's about it. And of course I don't drink at all when I'm pregnant. But lately all I want is a tall frosty glass of ics cold beer. Mmmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Why? Why beer? Every other pregnancy I've craved ice, fruit, chicken salad, normal things that I could eat at any time. Why beer? I can't have that! This sucks.
Ok, I'm done whining.

Re: I want beer!!

Beer was my #1 craving both times I was pregnant. Any time we went out to eat and I could smell someone else's, I started drooling. I even had dreams about it. Maybe try some N/A beer?

I'm with you but I want wine. I nearly paid the whole glass price for just a sip the other day a restaurant and really had to think hard to make myself stop.

Have half a beer and don't feel guilty. Just don't do it every day!

^^This! Alcohol has become so taboo in pregnancy, but when done right, it is not harmful at all!

I am not a beer drinker either...but the other day I was craving one too! Weird! (no, I didn't give in..thought about it...but I'm getting pretty big so I doubt anywhere would sell to me anyways)

Re: I want beer!!

I have too, a few times. Doesn't help that DH's favorite restaurant is a microbrewery. I would drink 1/2 glass of wine at home if I really wanted it, but not out in public. Most of my cravings have been sweets and cereal.

This! I have been craving red wine and will take a small drink or two every once in awhile when DH has a glass. I figure in such a small quantity the alcohol gets all burned up before it does anything

Re: I want beer!!

I am not a big drinker at all, but I do enjoy beer and have craved it a bit. Drinking beer in moderation (1/2 to 1 glass) is absolutely no big deal to me. I'm a picky beer drinker, though, so I can only afford to buy the kind that I like once every couple weeks or so. (it's local and not pasteurized).

Drinking a beer every once in a while is absolutely not going to hurt your baby! If it makes you feel guilty, obviously don't do it, but otherwise go for it!

I've had cravings for beer in the last few weeks (I'm 39 weeks pregnant). I won't cave and have any though. I wouldn't be content with just a sip, so I'm better off just enjoying the smell.
