Is there any chance at all that this could get back on topic?
Maybe those that have issues with tooting need to fart, I mean start a spin off thread?
I'm another one who had alcohol during all my pregnancies. And soft cheese. And raw meat. And sushis.
I know what a standard drink is (in Australia you pour wine like its water!!). And I never even had one in one sitting. Always with food too.
Risks and benefits and all that.
It's pretty far pushed to put us all in the same basket with the one who binged drink...
as a culture, Australians generally perceive themselves to be the underdog. any kind of tall poppy behavior is called out. totally the reverse of what it's like in the states where it's expected that you toot your own horn, as who else is going to do it for you. so funny all these little cultural nuances!
now, back on topic....
Pregnant for the first-time?
