  • Maybe you should try drinking grape juice instead of wine, just to satisfy the craving? Or I believe they sell non-alcoholic wine at grocery stores, but I'm not sure how good it is. I have heard some women who have a glass of wine now and then throughout their pregnancy, especially in the last couple of weeks it can be used to sort of "treat" or comfort BH contractions, but I don't know if I would do it. Or I would definitely get my doctor's advice first.

  • My dr suggested having a glass of red wine in my last few weeks to help to calm my nerves a little. I don't think there is anything wrong with about 2 oz of wine--I wouldn't over due it because it would cause damage to the baby.

  • What you're REALLY craving might be the antioxidants in wine. Try grape or cranberry juice instead.
