    I had a couple of cocktails the night before I found out I was preg, otherwise no, I didn't drink other than a sip or two at a wine tasting when I was around 20 weeks.

    I didn't touch a drop. I was also ridiculously stringent about not eating listeria risk foods.

    I didn't want to set a foot wrong in case something went wrong - I didn't want to have a reason to blame myself if that makes sense?

    Anyone who advises someone to take up smoking in order to have a smaller baby is a despicable, selfish moron.

    If we go out for dinner (once every month or two if I'm lucky) I'll have a small glass of wine over the course of the meal. I had a glass of bubbly on xmas day, too. My OB is completely fine with this and so am I.

    I had a glass of wine on occasion during my 2nd and 3rd trimesters. None in my 1st as I was way too sick. Currently breast feeding and I've had a drink here or there. I've found the ABA feed safe app brilliant! You pop in when you've started a drink and it counts down to when your breast milk should be alcohol free!

    OP, Your MIL's 'advice' is a strong contender for the 'Sh!t MIL's say' thread I think!

    In answer to the question, no, I didn't drink any alcohol whilst pregnant or breastfeeding, but I am not really a drinker, so it wasn't something I considered or needed to think about abstaining from.

    I didn't touch a drop from the moment I found out I was pregnant. I did have a few drinks before I found out though, so technically yes, I consumed alcohol whilst pregnant- I got my BFP at 5 weeks along with DS and 4 weeks along with DD.
    Eta: I just remembered, I drank a small glass of champagne during a toast at a wedding whilst pregnant with DS.

    I had the occasional drink during all three of my pregnancies. I'm ok with that and so was my Ob.
