    I would have had a few drinks before realising I was pregnant with my first, I can remember going to see a band, having a couple of drinks and feeling the effect way more than usual. Once I knew I was pregnant I chose not to drink, although I did have a sip of DH wine when we were out at dinner once. Our second pregnancy was planned so I didn't drink once tic or throughout the pregnancy. I did miss it though, I really enjoy a glass or two of nice wine

    I never drink during pregnancy or breastfeeding. I think the current advice is a drink every now and again is probably completely fine - I'd just rather not, and I'm happy to go without it.

    Yep, heaps. I was 19 weeks when I found I was pregnant. Prior to that I was getting drunk every weekend. DS is a perfectly normal 7 year old. In fact he's quite bright.

    First time around I had no alcohol after I found out I was pregnant (I think I had a couple of drinks one night before I knew), then 1/2 a glass of wine, once, around 25 weeks. I never drank when breastfeeding unless I could count on a large gap 'till the next feed.

    Second time, I had half a glass of wine 2 or 3 times from the second trimester, then drank from when DS was about 2 months old. When he was little, I wouldn't drink more than 1 drink in an evening if I'd need to feed him. These days though (he's 21 months) I wouldn't even stop to think about it, but then I rarely drink with the kids around.

    With DD (my first) not even a sip (the smell of red wine was divine though) with DS I had 1/2 a glass of wine twice and a full glass once at a wedding.

    Writing that down it songs awful, but I felt it was a safe decision at the time.

    With first pregnancy not a drop. Second and third not in the first trimester. After that I had the occassional mid strength beer with quarter lemonade. I wouldn't drink wine or spirits.
    I think the odd drink is fine but more than that isn't sensible.
    I've seen more than a few FASD kids in my time working in a childrens hospital and living where we live, very sad to see the effects of very excessive alcohol consumption in pregnancy.

    I had about 3 birthday cocktails the night before I found out I was pregnant with DD1. During both pregnancies I never had more than a sip/taste of someone else's drink on the odd occasion, and while breastfeeding after they were born would only have 1-2 drinks after they'd gone to bed and I knew I had a few hours before the next feed.
