    Personally I don't drink whilst pregnant, and I probably won't whilst breastfeeding either. It's not something I've missed at all. I used to really enjoy a party lifestyle but scaled it back once TTC and like any binge drinker would say I don't see the point in only have 1-2 drinks. I'd much prefer to have a sparkling water with lemon and lime any day than a glass of wine.
    I don't have an issue with pregnant ladies having the odd drink here and there whilst pregnant- it's totally their choice but when my friend would drink a bottle of wine with dinner every week whilst pregnant I did say something to her. Turns out her baby was fine. I do have an issue with any pregnant lady smoking whilst pregnant however.

    Nope. I was a bit of a stickler for following guidelines and was too scared to risk it.

    No particular reason. I just feel the need or the want to drink. I know I am weird. I just totally lost the desire for it.
    Not weird. I don't drink either so obviously didn't drink during TTC, pregnancy or breastfeeding.

    I will add that I don't really drink while BF. I have had a few small drinks of wine or beer.

    I don't drink for the feeling of being drunk/tipsy. I actually do not like the feeling as it sets off my anxiety.

    I do like the taste of good wine and beer. And sometimes I just feel like it because I like it.

    We were lucky as our pregnancy was IVF so I knew as soon as we were pregnant. I didn't have anything to drink at all & never would. I couldn't even drink when we recently had a miscarriage until it was all over. I just wasn't comfortable with it so didn't but everyone is so different.

    We moved house the weekend before I found out I was pregnant and had many friends drop by with bubbly so I had a fair few celebratory glasses over that week, although never more than 2 in one sitting. Not a drop once I found out though.

    I had 1 glass of bubbles & 1 glass of moscato at my baby shower and that was it. I'm not a huge drinker to begin with anyways

    I got very drunk a few nights before finding out I was pregnant with DD but not a drop after I found out and felt very guilty for the rest of my pregnancy. Didn't drink during ttc stage or pregnancy with the others
