  • NO
    Drinking wine is like playing Russian Rulelet
    It can affect your baby then it can not. So why take that chance?

  • some doctors will say that having ONE glass of wine a day won't hurt the baby.  HOWEVER, wine is still alcohol and if you abuse it, that baby can be harmed.

  • Wine is alcohol. Alcohol is proven that it can cause birth defects...why take the chance. I am raising a child with Fetal Alcohol issues...it's no picnic.

  • Having a small glass of wine during the last trimester won't hurt the baby. I had a glass of wine or two when I was in my 3rd trimester with my daughter. It's excessive amounts that is harmfull to the baby. But a small glass of wine is usually fine.

  • No that is not true. In fact, doctors do NOT know exactly how much or how little alcohol can cause a birth defect in a child. Any doctor would advise you to not drink during your pregnancy. While 1 little glass of wine probably won't do any harm, no one can say for sure...and you'd feel pretty bad if you ended up having a child with a birth defect that you, yourself, could have prevented. Its not worth it.

  • One glass of wine once in while will likely not do any harm. If you cannot drink in extreme moderation, then it is best to not have any at all.

  • I also wanted to mention that if you seriously cannot go 9 months without having a drink, even for the sake of your child, then maybe you have a problem.
