I'm turning 21 while pregnant and nearing the end of my second trimester. I've known people that have consistently drank wine while pregnant and tried convincing me that it was totally fine. Whether it is or isn't, I'd rather just not risk drinking like that throughout pregnancy! However, I just so happen to be turning 21 while pregnant. We're going out to a nice dinner and then to a movie :]
I was wondering if anyone else had been in this position and if you had ordered a glass of wine or a wine cooler while pregnant? I was thinking IF I did that I'd only have one glass, and mix it with sprite or something. Of course I wouldn't be doing it for any sort of "buzz" it'd only be just to pretend like I'm celebrating by actually ordering an alcoholic beverage.
I have to admit that when I was pregnant with my son, at the very end in desperation, I DID have a wine cooler mixed with sprite because a family member had told me it'd help induce labor. I now have a healthy, happy toddler, but I know that doesn't mean it's okay.
Please, give me your opinions and experiences! Negative or positive.
