1-2 glasses of wine a day when pregnant would be plain stupid. I'm talking about 1-2 a week.
And I know many will say why bother. Because I enjoy it. And there isn't a heck of a lot I do enjoy when pregnant.

I don't drink alcohol, and I'm a solo mother by choice.
BUT if I drank alcohol, and had a partner, he had bloody well better abstain with me.

It's so sad that FAS-D is not more widely known about. I didn't hear about it until I was working in the foster care sector about 7 years ago as a support worker for foster carers. One of my foster families were looking after twins who had FAS-D. The struggles that these 2 little ones went through even when they were just days old was heart breaking. The continual therapies and supports and extra help they will need for life were something these amazing carers took on and strived to ensure these 2 children received the best possible after the poor start to life that was inflicted on them by their mother.
I just hope that more people are made aware of this, and how dangerous drinking while pregnant is. 9 months without alcohol isn't the worst thing to go through for the sake of your child.

I will add that I'm aware that in those early days the baby isn't connected via a placenta therefore drinking wouldn't hurt it. It was my own personal decision. I don't think 1 or 2 drinks a week would be harmful. I was just so paranoid I didn't want to chance it.

Something about people sprouting their own intelligence makes me a little uncomfortable regardless of what side of the fence they sit on. Maybe that's a cultural thing.

I don't think abstaining from drinking when TTC or not really matters. Everyone makes choices that only affects them during that time.
It's the fact that no one can really safely say that alcohol is safe any time during pregnancy. And the effect of the that can cause issues with the baby.
I just don't see why anyone would want to take that risk. Sorry. .I just don't.
And I love some wine. .and desperately wanted to drink still in pregnancy. ..towards the end I really wanted a drink and took a couple of sips of my DHs drink. And I even think that was wrong.
Trying to raise a child with special needs is really hard work. ...I would think no one would want to take the risk that could potentially happen.
