No not at all. It's only 9months and maybe a few more. Surely u can't be that desperate to have a need to drink. It may not hurt the baby yet how can you be sure? Not a risk I was ever willing to try.

I have decided to have no alcohol at all. There are so many conflicting arguments and it is not for long anyway.
Before I knew I was pregnant (actually that nigiht!) I had been drinking on and off at various get togethers. I had been TTC for 5 months and thought it would never happen and just let go a little. Whoops! So I have decided not to have any at all as bubs already had it's fair share before I realised!

I didn't drink at all. I didn't want to have a reason to blame myself should anything have gone wrong during the pregnancy. I also avoided all the foods that you are told not to eat during pregnancy for the same reason.
This is just how I felt, and by no means a dig at anyone who didn't handle their pregnancy the same way.

I have gestational diabetes and my endocrinologist said that a glass of wine is better for me than a glass of soft drink. Needless to say I only have one glass, only if in a social situation (prob about once every 6 weeks) and never had any in the first trimester. I never have any at home and I would drink diet softdrink out if they had more choice than just diet coke which I cannot stand.

Yes. I'd have a drink or two several times a week.

Nope. Not a big drinker anyways, so was easy to go without

I've been such a 'good housewife' lately and fetched DF glasses of wine or beer when he asks...
... So I can just have a smell & sip off the top...
Same as last pregnancy have a bizarre beer craving. I DON'T DRINK BEER. I don't even like it. I like the smell of it though. Weirdo.
And at a few BBQs I've nursed half a glass of wine for a few hours to feel like I'm 'having a drink'.

Having a drinks no big deal really, just like all the foods they suggest not to eat. All just rubbish. Eat and drink whatever in moderation is the way to go.
