  • You're fine. An occasional beer'll be OK.

  • I dont mean to hurt your feelings but i was wandering if before you got pregnant you were dependent on Alcohol because if you are desperate enough to drink during your pregnancy there could be something wrong i am not dising you are trying to make you sound bad i was just wandering.

  • Some doctos say 1 beer is fine during pregnancy or even a glass of wine. I drank a few beers one night when I didn't know I was pregnant, probably was only like 2 weeks anyways. I was buzzed, it was like 4 beers probably. I had 1 glass of wine like the next week. I just had my baby 3 weeks ago 8lbs 12oz, and he was over a week early!! Healthy too. I'm also not over weight.

  • Although a half a beer probably won't hurt, there are studies out now (i read them) that show they do not know exactly how much or little alchol will damage a baby. My fertiitly specialist told me it could be a little as one a week even. Is it worth it?

  • Having a glass of alcohol a day is perfectly ok during pregnancy. Your baby will be fine. :)

  • just remember what you consume your baby consumes too. you wouldn't gave a 2 year old beer right, so why would anyone allow their unborn child to be exposed to it. you have to make decisions for your unborn child, make the right ones. if you think you need to have alcohol to cope maybe you have a bigger issue than you thought. get some help.
