A glass of wine every now and then during pregnancy?

I was just wondering if a glass of red wine was okay to have maybe once in a great while during pregnancy... Maybe once every month or two...

  • I wouldn't. I enjoy a drink now and then, but its not a risk I'd be willing to take. If anything went wrong, regardless of whether or not it was related to alcohol consumption, I can't imagine the guilt I would feel. They don't know how much alcohol is too much, and the fact that it crosses the placenta is enough to keep me away while pregnant.

  • Some doctors say it's fine but for myslef personally, I can wait till baby is out of my body :)

  • Some people say it's ok, but better safe than sorry. Why not just wait until after the baby is born? It isn't worth the guilt or the possible effects on your baby.

  • I couldn't do it, I figured it wasn't worth taking a chance, I could give it ups for 9 months. I gave up my pepsi too.

  • I tried to have a half glass of wine at Thanksgiving, when I was about 30 weeks. It tasted AWFUL. Lol so much for that!

  • one drink a week is supposedly the "safe" amount for the "average" woman. They advise to not drink anything though because people rarely stop at just one and alcohol affects every woman/baby differently.

  • I should be okay~ probably. (But no one on the outside can be CERTAIN.)
    What's the point?
    If you feel like it's a good remedy then a SMALL quantity (sips not ounces/ a cup) would be sufficient. No need to work on a buzz~

  • They say that's alright to do but I would feel too guilty so i couldn't do it. Better safe than sorry. I wont be able to have wine for a while because I'll be breastfeeding also.
