Yes I do, maybe 1/8 of a standard drink here and there... Whenever I feel like it really. Which is not everyday ;-)
The tiny amount is always enough to satisfy my craving and I'm confident it's not hurting the baby.

I drank a little bit towards the end of pregnancy. Stress could cause me to go i to labour and my pain meds were cut off. The obs actually said "a few drinks is the best we can offer you". It was only as pain relief.

I suspected I was pregnant because I didn't like the taste of the cider my
DH bought me on a night out. Something I'd drank and liked before.
I POAS that following morning and Yep... UTD.
After that i had a sip of DH's champers at a wedding and that was it.

1st baby not a single drop
2nd baby I had a couple of sips of Guinness towards the end. It wasn't much but it was still enough to scare the crap out of me. I'd constantly be wondering if I did any damage🙉 it wasn't worth it for me.
The oldies in my family kept telling me alcohol was good for the baby. My grandmother still doesn't get it all. She wants me to mash biscuits up and give it to my baby as a first food I'm like no id rather give veg fruit and rice. She said well that's no good the baby won't put on any weight eating that 🙈 so I took the biscuits and ditched them as we don't allow biscuits in this house.

No but I rarely drink anyway so it wasn't a big deal.

Fasd scares me a lot and I won't take a chance like that (no matter how remote). I know I would never be able to forgive myself if anything happened that could be easily avoided (I'm not judging those that choose differently either, it's a personal choice ).
I also quit smoking with my first and stuck to my diet with both (gestational diabetes). It's just in my nature to be cautious

Yes. Maybe 3 or 4 drinks from when i knew i was pregnant at 7wks. Before that, we had a few binge filled weekends happening so no idea before i found out.

Not while pregnant or breastfeeding as I just wasn't comfortable with it. That meant 7 years with no alcohol, and included my wedding night. I would do the same again. I'm not personally comfortable with it but it's up to the individual to decide if they are or not.
