Did you drink at all when you were pregnant? If so, what did you drink?

A couple times I had a glass of wine at dinners out.  But that was back in 1981 when people minded their own business.

Nope. I'm not really much of a drinker anyways so it didn't bother me at all to go 9 months without. I have heard several people say their doctor told them an occasional alcoholic drink is fine while pregnant, but I just thought...why risk it?

I was told a few glasses of red wine wouldn't hurt.

That's what I told. A few glasses of red wine couldn't hurt.

Nope. I am not an alcoholic. There isn't any reason to drink while pregnant.

Truthfully we don't know enough about how much and during what stage causes fetal alcohol syndrome. Is that wine worth the risk?

I had a very small sip of beer to see what this particular one tasted like. I love trying different beer, but I would never have more than a tiny sip here and there.
