  • I think that ONE small glass would be fine. Have a good night.

  • I think drinking anything while pregnant is totally pointless. Can you not just get a cheap bottle of alcohol free sparkling stuff..that's what I did while pregnant. I'm sure it won't hurt to have half a glass for the sake of having it with him, but what's the point when the bubbly stuff with no alcohol is so cheap!

  • A small glass wont hurt. I craved beer when I was pregnant and my dr said that was ok in limited amounts.

  • It shouldn't hurt, but why not save the wine until you are absolutely certain after the baby and after bf if you are doing that. Meanwhile as anon suggested, the bubbly grape juice stuff is fun, too. Why risk it.

  • You are NOT supposed to have ANY wine until the 3rd trimester and then it should be RED WINE and no more than 3-4 ounces.

  • There is no point in having an alcoholic drink when you don't have to. I think that is kind of mean of your hubby to get wine when you are pregnant. There are pleanty of great alternatives.

  • I've heard it's fine to have a glass...but in my opinion why even take a small risk? It's not worth it too me!
