  • I didn't drink anything, its really not worth it. I know some people that have drank beer like crazy when pregnant and had a totally fine baby but IMO its only really 8 months to wait.

  • Nope - I'm allergic.

  • I don't drink at all, so I most certainly don't drink pregnant.

  • I drank one sip of Communion wine at the Easter Vigil in Church. Other than that, not a drop. Even that sip was probably just about enough to fill a thimble.

  • no.... i would not take that chance. being a parent is about trying to do the best for your kids. i know they say it's safe to drink x amount of wine while pregnant, but imo it's better safe than sorry. but anyway i hate wine..... disgusting

  • my mom drank wine when she was pregnant with me, she had really bad braxton hicks and her midwife had her drink a glass when they get bad to relax her.

  • no! i would never drink while pregnant.
    but my favorite is blush or white zinfandel mixed with gingerale and ice.

  • Nope. I'm not a wine drinker to begin with, but I definitely miss my daquiries!

  • No I didn't. I can very easily wait 9 months to have a drink...I don't need alcohol bad enough that I would point my child's well-being in jeopardy for it.
