I have heard that a small amount of wine is safe during pregnancy . I however never felt comfortable having any alcohol at all . I just felt why take the risk , it is something that can wait until after baby is born . I am not a big drinker to begin with so it wasn't a big deal to not be able to while pregnant . My husband would occasionally have a drink and tell me to taste it and I was like no way !!


I would not take a chance at all with having any alcohol during pregnancy. I went to school with a girl who had a problem shaking (I am not sure what her exact condition was but she could not control herself from shaking) because her mother drank alcohol with her during pregnancy. I am sure her mother may have drank a lot for her daughter to get such a terrible disability but I would never take a chance with even a little. Alcohol is just bad for the growing baby. I just would not take the chance.
