  • i had drank like not even 4oz of sangria in my 3rdtriemester. i was oked twice by my doctor for champagne but never did. its a personal choice and i thiink every now and then its ok but like is said my sangria was at the tail end and i enjoyed it and i gave myself permission. everyone has different thoughts about this and its very controversial but i think as long as you are ok with it and i don;t know about everyday but maybe once or twice depends i think its fine. to each their own.

  • yes,I usually have a glass of red wine in the evening. It is supposed to be healthy. And it tastes so much beyter than hard liquor or beer.

  • I used to (not when pregnant). Now I drink beer, since we brew it ourselves and it is both tasty & cheap.

  • I wonder if this is a pregnant question also. When I was pregnant I would have an occasional half glass of wine. I might have had a total of three in each pregnancy.
    However, it has been a long, long time since I have been pregnant and usually have a bottle or two of red wine a week.

  • I had one or 2 sips while in my 3rd trimester,, didn't want it really, every doctor has different outlooks on this, I know women in Europe have a glass of wine now and then while pregnant,, Gweneth Paltrow drank a beer or 2 a week, ask your doctor.

  • I have heard that red wine is strengthening. It has iron and, of course, vitamin C.

    The French mystify scientists & doctors. With all the fat they eat in their rich food they should have heart troubles and be very fat,---BUT, on the whole, the average Frenchman isn't any less healthy or fat than anyone else. If anything, they're less fat and more healthy ! I think that the reason for this is MODERATION,--- plus the French savor their food, taking a while to eat it. They enjoy greatly dining.

    Vive la France !!!
