    Yes, the neck of DH's beer on a Friday afternoon towards the end when everything was going pear shaped & I was stressed to the max.

    Maybe 2-3 the entire 9 mths at most, normally just a mouthful from DFs beer. I posted this in the other thread but I'm curious to know why some women refuse flat out to drink alcohol but will use drugs during labor or will flag down the first intervention bus that drives pass, seems a bit odd to me.

    I abstained completely and also do so while BFing. Not worth the risk to me.

    I refuse to drink and I am dead set against drugs during labour. I've avoided a lot of chemicals and so forth whilst pregnant to.

    Interesting point you have. I've never really thought of that. I don't agree with drinking while preggers. A sip here and there is ok (especially when it's still to early to tell people and u have to pretend to drink). I tasted a friends wine last week and could feel it almost immediately - reassuring my decision not to drink during pregnancy. But I've never looked at it at delivery stage and the drugs taken then. Hmmmm. Now you've got me thinking.....

    I didn't, I prefer not to take drugs or alcohol during pregnancy.
