  • Yep. IMO, it is ok to drink about a glass of wine a week or so. The problem is people don't know when to say when.

  • Honestly I err on the side of caution. Tehy don't know how much it takes to cause FEAS or at what point it is unsafe to drink. we know that women drink and have normal healthy babies, but we also know that women dirnk and have babies with problems. I played it safe and waited. If omeone needs a drink that bad then they need to seek counseling.

  • I agree with purpleducky. About one glass a week is fine. In other cultures and countries, the doctor recommends that a pregnant woman have a glass or two a week.

  • well my doctor game the ok twice for champagne but its a personal decision. i did do it at the very end. i was about 37 weeks and i had half a glass of sangria. every doctor is different and every person that is pregnant has to make that own decision. i never drank until the really end even with that ok but i gave myself permission. ask your friend to ask her doctor and if she really wants it to take a little bit. i say if its in the 2nd or 3rd triemester its better then the first. i personally would do just a tad but everyone makes their own choice.

  • Personally I wouldn't chance it with my baby... but I don't judge those who do... figure worst case they can retard their kid and give mine the upper hand... Hahaha!!! I know bad sense of humor

    But I wouldn't chance it, and I added choline/DHA to my vitamins to help give a better chance! So soemthing that can retard my kid wasn't an option... but even my doctor told me I technically could do a glass a day... no thanks!

  • I don't see the benefits to doing so while pregnant. Not knowing a concrete amount that's safe would have me abstaining completely. There are other, safer, non-alcoholic means to lowering stress and relaxing.
