    I haven't heard any definite studies saying it was harmless, especially during the first trimester. So why risk it?

    I drank before I knew I was pregnant{first 2 months}and my baby was fine. Red wine Ive heard is healthy just a glass here and there. A doctor told my mother when she was pregnant 22 years ago that a few aint gonna hurt..and it didnt.

    A little glass every now and then is okay, but I sure wouldn't make a habit of it. Like someone said, why risk it?
    I couldn't stand the taste of alcohol while I was pregnant, so had none... but i might have had a bit of red wine now and again after the first trimester.

    there are published studies out there, from europe where they are allowed to do that, and one glass of wine a week is fine for preggers, too bad i hate wine!

    I think every once in a while is okay, but I think I'd hold off until after the first trimester.

    I don't think it's particularly a good idea if you can help it, but I wouldn't bash another woman for having a single glass. Of course there's a risk with every drink, but there's quite a distance between having one or two servings during the whole time and drinking a glass or more, every day, knowing you're pregnant.

    In the third trimester, yes. One glass.

    Dr.'s say that red wine occasionally is ok during pregnancy just like drinking coffee.

    My friend's doc told her the occasional glass would be ok, and would also be ok while breastfeeding. I personally didn't because i don't really like to drink to begin with so saw no reason to.
