  • I think that if the doc says that its okay, then it is okay. I personally, do not feel comfortable with it... but if you want to have ONE, and the doc has said it is ok... then go for it! :) I know that some docs SUGGEST it :)

  • I wouldn't personally have a full glass. Over the course of my pregnancy I had maybe a total of one glass of champagne just because of the different celebrations we had. The first trimester is really the highest concern. It's a judgment call. Personally, I'm not one to take risks with pregnancy, but one glass is a very different story than one bottle, you know? Sip it slowly, make it last, even over an hour or more.

  • I wouldn't do it, but I won't even take Tylenol during pregnancy. Just wait it out. It's not THAT important is it?

  • It's totally fine. I had about 1-2 glasses a month after the first trimester, with plenty of doctor "okays". It Europe the limit is no more than one a DAY, (which is too much for me personally). FAS only occurs in alcoholics (or people lying about their alcoholism), and they're finding that a little bit of wine here and there is actually GOOD for your baby, not harmful. Remember, however, a "GLASS" is no more than 4 oz.
