drinking alcahol while pregnant

Do you think it's ok to have a glass or 2 of wine or champagne on Christmas while pregnant. I am not talking about all day every day just 1 or 2 glasses on Christmas.
Why or why not?

  • Technically I think one glass of wine is ok when pregnant, but I never would do that. I wouldn't judge anyone who did though. I did drink while pregnant because I didn't know I was pregnant. That still makes me feel guilty :(

  • I think ONE small glass of wine would be okay, but no more than that. Some people would advise none, though, to be safe. Two glasses would be way too much, I think, Personally, I wouldn't risk it! Why? Because it's unknown how much alcohol it takes to cause fetal alcohol syndrome, and it's simply not worth the risk.

  • Maybe a sip or two but definitely not a glass or two. I had a sip in mexico because we were celebrating a late honeymoon and i was 4 mos preg. My dr said I could. But I would not do more than a sip or two.

  • well, i got the ok i think twice from my dr. when i entered my second trimester. i didn;t do it until the end of my pregnancy. i had a little glass. but to each their own. my dr said a glass of champagne at a wedding was fine. but i didn;t do it. its a personal choice. how far long are u? oh i have known people that have done it again later in the pregnancy not the first trimester. good luck.

  • How far along are you? I would say no if it's the first trimester and yes after that, to a 3oz glass not a goblet, LOL!
