    I didn't know I was pregnant until I was 8 weeks along. In that time I went to my Office Christmas party and helped myself to a few glasses of champaign... I feel so guilty about this though and for a long time I was really worried. I haven't touched a drop since. mum assured me plenty of babies born in the 70's and 80's were exposed to a lot more alcohol and cigarette smoke while in the womb and most turned out 'fine.' I'm still a little worried about it though... I just hope Bub is healthy and happy. Can't wait to meet 'It.'

    I chose not to drink whilst pregnant with DD. I felt like a light beer over the Xmas I was pregnant, but stopped myself. I think being baby number 1 I was very very cautious of EVERYTHING I did.

    In saying that ~ my Obstetrician who is extremely well regarded and respected told me that it was ok to have the odd glass of red.

    SO ~ in my opinion if you feel like a glass of wine occassionaly then have one. If you don't feel comforatable then don't.

    I won't be this time again either as I just don't feel comforatable doing it.

    i'm ashamed to say i did drink during pregnancies. for the absolute pathetic reason that i didn't want people to know i was pregnant until after the first trimester. because i was a bit of a party animal before that. i would sip away slowly , hoping they wouldn't notice i was sipping. DH would take big drinks out of mine to help me out or buy me soda water but get the barman to dress it like a G&T. how silly am i.

    Lemon Lime and Bitters has barely any alcohol (less than mouthwash), you dont have to be a licenced premises to sell it (its in the soft drink machine at sizzler), and we served it to children.

    I make my own with the real bitters, not the pre-made stuff you buy at the supermarket

    I never touched a drink with any of my kids after finding out that I was pregnant. I am so against drinking while pregnant!

    For the first trimester I didn't touch a drop.
    After that I will have the odd light beer.

    When i didn't know i was preg i was drinking on weekends/occasions but when i found out around 8-10 weeks i was pregnant i stopped drinking altogether and i don't even feel like it.

    In my opinion drinking while pregnant is wrong and unnessecary.
