    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.

    I recently wrote an assignment on drinking during pregnancy for my postgrad. The guidelines state that no alcohol should be consumed while pregnant. Evidence shows that you need to consume an excessive amount of alcohol to cause any foetal alcohol syndrome related conditions. Damage is at it's worst in the first 12 weeks whilst all development is taking place, but can still cause developmental delays after 12 weeks. Still, I'm not risking it. Good thing is that I don't miss it AT ALL even though I loved a drink before I was pregnant. I have friends who drank a few glasses of wine a night and had health babies.
