  • People are concerned that you're too stupid to know about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and expect that because you are in the bar you're probably there to drink, so you're there to get yourself a mentally and physically handicapped baby. Hence the glares.

    Making it clear that you're drinking water (like by carrying a water bottle around with you) can take the heat off.

  • I personally don't think it is wrong. I mean if you are drinking a lot then people might start saying things. If you are just there hanging out with your friends and having fun I don't see anything wrong with it.

  • Depends on whether or not you're drinking. Personally, I enjoy going to bars with my friends even though I can't drink. It's kind of a stress reliever for me and gets me out of my bed :)

  • I wouldn't worry about it. People are gonna think and say whatever they want. It's funny the people who run their mouth the most are usually doing far worst things. It makes them feel better about themselves. ( I know you said you are not drinking.) Even if they seen the bartender pour you water they would say something else.

  • Just the atmosphere of a bar usually isn't one for a pregnant woman, I think they are just shocked
