Wine while pregnant?

I was told that less than 4 oz of wine a day is still OK. That it won't affect the fetus.

  • Personally I was never comfortable drinking even one drop of alcohol while I was pregnant.

  • Maybe every great once in awhile, but certainly not every day.
    I say, why risk it?
    I had MAYBE a total of a glass of champagne throughout my pregnancy, because of special events. Even that I don't think I would do next time around.

  • Why take the chance? If something where to go wrong you would never forgive yourself

  • Agree. Even my doctor told me it was ok. I would have, but even the thought of wine while pregnant gave me the WORST heartburn! Couldn't do it.

  • I will add, that if heartburn wasn't an issue, I would not have had it EVERY day...I think that's excessive. But once a while, np.

  • It might be ok, it might not. The research goes both ways because the effect alcohol has on a woman's fetus depends on what effect the alcohol has on her, and alcohol effects each of us differently. I would never drink while pregnant because a taste of alcohol isn't worth the risk of hurting my child.

  • Totally agree.

  • not every day but i got the ok twice. i only drank once and that was at the very end and that was giving myself permission. noone has to give you permission accept yourself . if you can live with your choice, than so be it. i would never do it everyday but i say maybe at the end if you want. if not then don't do it.

  • i wouldnt do it because they are unsure just how much alcohole truly affects the fetus. They dont know if it takes alot or just a tiny bit so given the fact they cant tell me for 100% it wont harm my baby i wont do it. Im pregnant with my third child and havnt had any alcohol with any of them and i wont. Not worth the chance to me.
