    I haven't had a drop and don't intend on having one. I enjoy lots of drinks that don't have alcohol in them so will continue to drink them.

    I haven't touched alcohol for a long long time. Maybe its because I am not a big drinker but I just don't feel the need to have to have some alcohol while pregnant. I don't feel like I am missing anything.

    For those who did drink during their pregnancy. Were you a big casual drinker beforehand?

    I've had a glass of wine at about 13 weeks to celebrate making it to the second trimester, i had it over dinner. I felt weird drinking it as I was aware of being pg the whole time but I'm sure I'll have another glass before my time is up.

    I had a champagne and a wine before I knew I was pregnant, then only had a few sips on about 3 different occasions during the remainder of the pregnancy.

    No. I can't understand people who do. Why is it such a huge sacrifice to simply not drink.

    Nope

    As soon as I found out I was pregnant that was it for the alcohol.

    When we moved into this new house our new nextdoor neighbour gave us (well me as DH doesn't drink the stuff) a bottle of wine to welcome us to the neighbourhood.

    It's my favourite wine and it's sitting up there in the top of the cupboard just waiting to be cracked open as a celebratory drink once this bubs is born.

    9 months of soberity in my book isn't a huge sacrifice to make, I just couldn't justify drinking knowingly whilst pregnant.
