I'm pregnant, can I have a beer?

I'm over 5 months pregnant and there's a beer in my fridge... would it really be that bad to drink it?

Mean responses will be ignored/reported.

  • One beer isnt going to hurt your baby. People try to spread scare tactics about FAS, but all it takes is a little research to find out its only been reported in heavy drinkers. One beer or one glass of wine every once in a while, is ok. Even your dr will tell you that.

  • You are going to get mean responses , I will tell you that right now. Look at it this way: Everything that goes into your body, goes into that baby.So, do your want your baby to have a beer?

  • You're already expecting mean answers. Pretty sure you know what the answer is based on that.

  • What do I mean reported? If someone intentially calls another person a rude name or calls them stupid for asking a question, that is abuse.

  • While I was pregnant and stressing out around 9 months I had half a smirnoff with sprite. Obviously just for the taste and to calm down. The doctor said it was fine but not to make it a habit, which it wasn't.

  • I don't think a beer would cause any harm, but there's no guarantee to it. My SIL sipped a few sips, maybe 1/4 of a beer. I don't see anything wrong with taking a few sips, but I personally would not drink a whole beer. I get a huge buzz off of one, I couldn't imagine my baby feeling that way! JMO.

  • Do you really think it's worth the possible consequences to have that one beer? If you want it for the taste, which a lot of women crave beer, go get an O'Douls. They are alcohol free. Better for your unborn child, which you are responsible for protecting and taking care of.
