    I drank during the first few months of my pregnancy i stopped when i found out i was pregnant but that wasnt till around 12 weeks!!.

    I read all these horrible things about what was going to happen to DD, that she would be an "alcohol baby" etc. But she is fine. She is an average 3.5yr old.

    No never.

    I dont understand why people can't say no for 9 months for the health of their babies.

    I only drank once while BF too. & I prob expressed 2 days worth of milk for 3/4 drinks.

    Cupcakes mine to lol im a revert Muslim + can't drink but i did before i reverted but would never during pregnancy. i don't see the point in 1 glass (if its the taste theres none alcoholic wine) so why not just not have it x
    i drank when i had a miscarriage (r.i.p angel) i couldnt deal with it but soon as we started trying again i didn't drink + started healthy eating taking vits etc so i know im in tiptop condition x

    Last pregnancy the only craving I had was beer (I don't like beer) so every now and then I would have a tiny sip of my partners beer. Also had 1/4 flute of champers in last trimester for Christmas lunch.
