I was told to not even use cough syrup because it contains alcohol. I think everyone's told different things.
Did it. Healthy, happy, bright beautiful amazing boy.
There are rules, however. While it's generally said you can drink up to two drinks per week, that was far too much for me. I stuck to 2-3 drinks a month, AFTER THE FIRST TRIMESTER ONLY, and if I drank at home, used a measuring cup to ensure I was drinking no more than 4 oz.
Amazingly, it was the most relaxed, enjoyable, nonstressful, least amount of weight gain and least sick pregnancy I had because I knew I had one day a week to go out with friends, have a glass of wine, eat a crepe and listen to some music and be a normal person.
I didn't and won't.
i am ok with it in people that can limit it to one drink every now and then. and only in late pregnancy.
Fine after the first trimester, in moderation of course.
