    No I didn't but that was because I just sincerely didn't want it. I'm not opposed to having a small amount here and there on occasion. A few friends have done just that and I didn't judge them.

    I did. I had an occasional drink when I was pregnant with my DD. Not very often at all and never more than a standard drink. I didn't drink in my first trimester and hardly had anything at all in the last trimester (because I really couldn't stomach it!).

    I got terribly drunk the weekend before I found out I was pregnant and for some reason blurted out I was pregnant. I hadn't done a test or even missed my period! I wanted to drink for my 25th (just a couple) but no one would let me. I always seemed to have someone stopping me from drinking.

    I had half a glass of champagne with my meal at Christmas and I've also had half a glass of red with a meal. Perfectly comfortable with it. I really don't feel like drinking when pregnant so, apart from having a glass at a friends wedding in April, that will be it.

    I don't drink so no, no alcohol while pregnant with all 3 of mine.

    I've met a child with fetal alcohol syndrome before. Soo sad. She was very delayed and only spoke a few (constantly repeated) sentences at 4yrs old. Sad that her mum did that to her and now she is stuck with if for the rest of her life

    Not a drop with either pregnancy. I think as adhoc tiny bit now and then wouldn't be too bad, I am just super paranoid. And I quite like a drink and thought it best to go cold turkey. I must admit I do raise my eyebrow at anything other than an adhoc standard drink. That might be because I had a friend drink heavilyish throughout her pregnancy and now her kid is suffering as a result.

    I drink while breastfeeding however my kids are good sleepers so once it's 7pm they are out until 7am. In the very early days when they were still unsettled I either didn't drink or only had a little bit. I found the ABA's alcohol chart quite handy.

    OP: I can't ever recall anyone tell me what I should or shouldn't do during pregnancy... Perhaps they know me too well

    Default Did You Drink Alcohol While Pregnant?

    Nope. I haven't had a drop in any of my pregnancies. Researchers don't know how much is safe. Have your family not seen the adverts on TV? Things have changed from 20/30 years ago!

    Eta: I had my inlaws try telling me to do everything differently, but it's your body, your baby and only your and your partners opinions matter! Stuff everyone else! It's none of their business
