  • I think what is more important, your childs health or a drink?

  • I wouldn't risk it, having a drink is not worth possibly causing harm to my child. 9 months isn't that long of a wait.

  • I've heard that, and I've heard that in European countries, women are often encouraged to drink a little., with the argument that the harm to the baby is minimal. For me, it comes down to a choice for my child-- do I take the risk of harming my baby by drinking alcohol, knowing that alcohol has been provent to damage neural cells, or do I not? I choose not. I choose not to take even a minimal risk.

    I, however, do eat cold cuts. And hot dogs. Can't help it. Gotta have it.

  • My Dr. actually told me a glass of wine or a beer a week isnt' gonna do any harm to you or your baby, I had a glass of wine a week up until the night before I had her.

  • I have also heard a couple wont hurt also,but I would'nt risk anything when it come to my baby,because if something was to be wrong with him/her,I would blame myself for the rest of my life.If you don't drink that much,then I think you could wait until the baby is born to drink.But It's up to you.Lord I'm sounding like a Mom. Good Luck

  • For the nine months that you carry a precious child in your body, it makes sense that you do everything possible to protect him or her, which includes not drinking.

  • I seriously would drink any drink while preggy because it could cause your baby to come out with SERIOUS problems!.
