  • People are going to tell you that you are a terrible person for even asking this question, FYI.

    Regardless, my doctor said that I could have a couple beers throughout my pregnancy and that it wouldn't hurt a thing. And red wine is supposed to be good for you, so IMO I say go for it, but no more than 1 small glass.

  • Check with your doctor first, but with my first pregnancy and my current, my doctor said it is okay to have a glass of wine every now and then.

  • They say one glass of wine is good for the blood flow in your placenta, some doctors will even tell you to have a small glass every day, some will tell you once a week.
    I personally dont do it, but I see nothing wrong with it.
