    That is complete rubbish, please get your facts correct before scaremongering women with false info.

    I found it a hard adjustment not being able to drink so my partner gave up drinking too in support of me. It made the 9 months so much easier on me! I was quite a lucky woman I think.

    Yes, I drank a glass of wine every now and then. I have no problems with that and I'll probably do it with my next pregnancy too.

    When I was pregnant with my first I had a few drinks before 20 weeks before becoming too worried about the effects if could possibly be having. When I say a few I mean like 1 a week/fortnight max. I'm a worrier so drinking the minimal amount I did just stressed me out until I had my 20 week scan.
    Last pregnancy I had 1 drink in the TWW and then none the entire time I carried him.
    This pregnancy not a drop since TTC. I don't think it's necessary but admit that I would love a beer! I know what I'm having once bubs is born

    Like they say, everything in moderation. Each to their own though. Everyone has their own opinion on what is right and wrong during pregnancy and we are all entitled to our own opinion even if its different to someone elses, it doesnt mean the other person is wrong. Its the same with smoking. Some people stop or cut down (I quit the day I found out I was UTD), some dont, but thats another issue entirely.
    just wanted to point out that your baby boy was born on my birthday! wooooo
