I had a small glass of wine mixed with lemonade once in a while after I was 19weeks pregnant with Alex. This was at family meals which were few and far between. I didnt drink anything up until then.

Ooooo i love a good glass of wine (Wednesday Wine with the girls! Whoop)
BUT i never drank with my pregnancies because I don't really see the point of just having one drink!

Default drinking whilst pregnant

i had the odd glass of guiness and wine whilst pregnant and my baby girl is absolutaly fine. i dont think the odd glass through being pregnant does any harm. fair enough drinking every weekend or drinking alot is not acceptable

actually the uk now advise no alcohol at all, I live in Belgium now and I'm not sure but I think the advice is the same. Either way I would never drink while pregnantand I personally think it is selfish to do so, I mean come on, it's only for 9 months of your life! (sorry folks)

I have no time for people who smoke while pregnant. tut tut.

I totally agree bev, at the end of the day 9 months is a tiny time in your whole life, and if people are selfish enough to get drunk (i dont mean a small glass here and there even though i agree none is best) but the people that totally drink too much then they aren't ready for the responsibility of being a parent, as its a completely selfless job

I'd never drink alcohol if I knew I was pregnant, I think it is very selfish. And the thing that winds me up the most ever is people that say "I drank/smoked whilst pregnant and my baby is fine"! Bloody lucky their baby is fine-those people took a chance with their childs life/wellbeing all for the sake of a few drinks/fags.

I didn't know I was pregnant on my wedding day (and possibly my hen night) and got smashed and I will always wonder if this is what caused my daughters' disability. Doctors and stuff keep telling me its impossible for this to be the reason but I will always wonder

I know I sound high and mighty and get on my high horse about this stuff but it really makes my blood boil! I'm a rather sensitive soul!

I agree completely! I feel it is much to selfish to risk it. No one knows at what time during the baby's development that alcohol has an effect, so why risk it at any time? People are becoming much too selfish lately I feel... (society as a whole that is, not meaning the people on this board). We were planning for both kids so I stopped drinking at least a month before trying. That said, if someone doesn't know they are pregnant and drinks, you can't fault that, as long as they stop after they know.

Also there is some research to say that the father's drinking can also affect the child negatively (although that would only be upon conception and they are off the hook for the 9 months following).

I didn't touch alcohol at all whilst pregnant with Oliver and because only just finished b'fing this weekend was the first time I drank 2 glasses of wine! I was a bit tipsy to say the least!!!!! I don't agree with drinking whilst pregnant and as for smoking well, don't get me started!
