    The smell of red wine is driving me mad ATM (during this pregnancy) for some reason. Really craving it big time...but I personally wouldn't as it's just not worth any uncertainty about whether it's safe or not, for me. But I've had friends who have sipped on a glass of champers whilst pregnant at a party and I don't see anything wrong with that, if that's what you feel comfortable with. To each his (or her) own I reckon! Same can be said for coffee and other things. I do have a latte a few times a week whilst others would avoid caffeine for fear of the risk of miscarriage. We all make our own judgement calls

    Nope. With DD I had probably 1/4 glass of champers at a wedding, DS1 I think I had 1/2 glass of red once. And DS2 not even a sip.

    Having said that, I don't think one small glass here and there is harmful. But particularly with DS2, we'd had numerous losses and I didn't want to potentially lose him and wonder if that glass of red did it.

    I had a few vodkas at 6 weeks as I had no Idea I was pregnant (I was on the pill) and I felt so incredibly guilty once I found out. I also craved beer really bad in the last trimester and I am not even a beer drinker, I resisted the temptation though and stuck with zero alcohol the rest of pregnancy.

    Nope - I'm not a big drinker so it wasnt hard for me to not drink wine. I gave up coffee with my first - that was harder.

    I had very small amounts after the first trimester - 1/4 glass champagne or wine, 1/2 glass beer once a month or so.

    One of my relatives is a GP, and family dinners would be interesting as he would be obviously disapproving without actually directly saying anything. His wife is now pregnant and is a coke fiend, and barely heeds any listeria or salmonella advice consuming ham, deli salads, runny eggs etc. Between those risks, for me I would personally choose a drink!

    I had one drink with my family (had flown over and was the first time I saw them in 7 years) on Christmas Day. I was 30 weeks pregnant.
    It was white wine and soda- about 40/60%

    ETA: I had a lot (for me- 4 wines and 2 vodka+cokes) about 3 days before I found out I was pregnant and was so so sick for 48 hours after. Ugh. Still felt off the third day and kept dropping things and a friend told me to test so I did and BAM 2-3 weeks pregnant.

    Yep, small amounts a few times over both pregnancies, but not in the first trimester.

    No. But I'm not much of a drinker in general and usually only drink on occasions when it is 'expected' (NYE/mine and DH's birthdays etc). This pregnancy was conceived a week after NYE and my birthday, and is due a few days before DH's birthday so I'm not really missing out on anything anyway
