I don't see anything wrong with a glass of wine with dinner, I just never happened to do it. I hardly ever drink normally.

I'll have one small glass of wine every so often, maybe 5-6 over the whole pregnancy. Mostly alcohol doesn't taste good, but if it does I see no problem having a glass at a wedding or a holiday.

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

I don't drink even communion wine when I am cycling let alone pregnant or breastfeeding. I didn't drink coffee till my DD was in the hospital and a Neonatologist thought it might help my dd with some of her issues as she was getting breast milk. And I am from Washington state! It is a law out there that you drink coffee!

I won't even have a drop if I'm TTC....If I wanted to consume a lot of calories with practically no nutritional benefit I'd run out to a cheese cake factory or marble slab creamery!!!

I don't drink; however my last ob kept telling me to drink a small glass of wine daily. I just smiled and ignored him.

Never had a drink when I was PG with DD, had a glass or two (total) of red wine while pg with DS and with this pregnancy I haven't had any. I'm not against it, just don't feel the need to have any I guess.
