Do you think it’s rude to go to dinner with your non-preggo friend and she orders a glass of wine or beer or whatever alcoholic drink? Does it bother you?
Not necessarily in a girls night group outting, but if you’re just chillin with one friend, how would you feel about that?
I’m sure there are different opinions, I’m just curious to see if there’s a general consensus.

Doesn’t bother me! Ill sip or smell their drinks though.

Not at all. I honestly think it would be rude of me to expect my friends to not drink just because I can’t.

It doesn’t bother me but I wasn’t a huge drinker to begin with. I stopped drinking all alcohol when we were TTC and I essentially live vicariously through everyone else, including Darling Husband. Haha

I drool a little but it doesn’t annoy me. I miss my good wine.

@Ashley_P: I don’t think it’s rude at all. She’s not pregnant, she can have whatever she wants to drink.

Doesn’t bother me!!
It bothers some people a lot, though. I went out to dinner with a friend once when I was two weeks from turning 21, and she ordered a beer, not thinking about it. She apologized for like an hour!
It would bother me if said friend got schwasted, because that’s just rude regardless. But one or two and not feeling it? No problem.

That would definitely not bother me.

@Ashley_P: Doesn’t bother me. Just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean she has to act it too.

Why would it be rude? She isn’t pregnant.

If I was pregnant, I wouldn’t care, because I don’t like alchohol anyways, and I there are a lot of other healthier options to choose from! But I could never drink in front of someone who couldn’t. I’m hyper-sensitive to other people’s feelings, I never want to make someone feel bad or like they’re missing something.

Never even thought of this. I would honestly think it was rude if she expected me not to drink around her. If I couldn’t drink around a pregnant or Breastfeeding friend then I wouldn’t be drinking for the next 5+ years because my friends are rotating baby makers and there is always 1 of them at any given time that can’t drink.
