  • in the olden days people drank while pregnant and babies were fine for the most part. if your getting drunk often, that could definately cause harm. A glass a wine every once in a while is no longer suggested, but I've never known it hurting anyone.

  • I drank, not very heavily though it made me sick, hint hint your prego stupid but I was not aware of that at the time, I do know a woman that adopted a child with fetal alcohol syndrome its really sad he is a good kid though and she is a wonderful woman for doing what she is doing of him!

  • only before I knew I was preggo. one night after lots of beer drinkin at a bar, SO and I went to our friend's parents house to use the pool, grill out and party some more...but I just weird and funny. YEP that was my body's way of sayin stooooop you're preggo! i took a test a few days later and there ya go lol. but no I didnt drink while i knew I was pregnant. well I did take a tiny ass lick of my SO's beer and it was nasty. my son turned out very healthy! there's no safe amt of alcohol to consume so its better to avoid it all together, but I've heard of doctors giving the thumbs up one ONE beer or ONE small glass of wine, and only once in a blue moon of there are no complications

  • I would occasionally drink a beer or a glass of wine but not often. All my kids are healthy,intelligent grown -ups now so I guess it didn't hurt at all. ;-)

  • A girl I know drank while she was pregnant. Her child is small in stature and has a lot of learning and speech problems. The child is almost 10 years old and still in the 1st grade. She didn't drink often but she did drink throughout her pregnancy. It made me wanna scream at her everytime I seen it. I don't agree with drinking at all when you're pregnant. Not knowing you're pregnant is one thing but to drink knowing you're pregnant is asking for trouble.

  • Celebrated my 21st before knowing I was pregnant. THe occasional drink won't hurt anything, according to doctors. I guess it's how youfeel about it.
