Having spent 10K on having a baby through IVF I would in no way ever consider drinking!!

Easier to wait 9 months than have a lifetime of wondering if a drink affected the baby...just my opinion.

I chose not to with all 3 of our children.
The way I see it is it's only 9 months to wait... just a speck of time in your life in the grand scheme of things.

All previous pregnancy's i havent touched a drop, this pregnancy i had a west coast a few months back, but nothing since then, attended a wedding 3 nights ago and used water for toasting instead of the passion pop they supplied lol

I had the odd glass here and there. Once I had 2 glasses in 1 night (& felt like the worst mum ever afterwards) but DD is healthy and thats all that matters

I am also a yes and no. The last pregnancy I didn't drink anything...not a drop, I was so A N A L over it my husband got annoyed (not that I was a big drinker in the first place! hahah).
But this one I have had a full beer and now just couple of mouthfuls of his whenever he gits a six pack over the weekend...and a glass of wine when we played poker a couple of months ago. I actually enjoy the alcohol. Before I was even pregnant it made me sick, even a sip, it's nice to have that calm feeling when everything else is so hectic.

I choose not to drink whilst pregnant or whilst breastfeeding. It's such a short time really, I don't think it's that big of a sacrifice.

Nope, I wouldn't feed my newborn ANY amount of alcohol so I don't put ANY amount into my body to ilter through to them. We may not know about 'safe levels' or where the line is drawn but I do no alcohol does not enhance any of our bodily functions so therefore none for bubba.
I will have the occasional cocktail when out o dinner and BReastfeeding but I will have a backup supply of expressed milk and will express and discard the next feed after a drink

I would have loved a glass or two sometimes, but I didnt indulge.
With Mr G I CRAAAVED beer, so I used to swirl it around in my mouth and then spit it out!

I'm craving beer this time. I don't even like beer that much! When I go to my parents for dinner I just smell Dad's beer .
