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

yes, I've had ONE drink a handful of times w/each pregnancy. Probably three or four drinks per pregnancy, spaced out over the entire time.

I don't feel bad at all, and it has never bothered me in the least.

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

I'll have a glass of beer every so often (like once or twice a week). I normally drink wine but it has tasted too strong during pregnancy. It's not a big deal at all to drink in Argentina while pregnant. Normally people will go out of their way to tell you that you can have a drink. Also, my mom was in Scotland during her first pregnancy and they recommended a glass a day of beer for the iron I think. Obviously that was long ago but it's still interesting.

I drank a small glass of champagne during this pregnancy when I was about 9 or 10 weeks pregnant. I felt guilty about it though. I would not consume a full glass of wine or beer. Maybe a few small sips. I'm a cautious person by nature.

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

I followed the UK guidelines - 1 or 2 units (that's a small glass of wine), once or twice a week. Practically speaking, for me, that was a small glass of wine a week.

In 1995, the advice was 2-3 units a day, but that must have been before there was research into the spectrum of foetal alchohol disorders.

I put "tiny sip" because technically I have it every Sunday at mass. However, nothing beyond that. But I don't judge those who have a drink once in awhile.
