    I havent had any yet at 35 weeks and I dont think I will. Our 1 yr anniversary and beach trip was tough!

    DH gives me the stink eye when I joke that I will have a glass to help me relax.  He says if I made it this long I can make it a few more weeks.  He also knows that I would be too worried about if it was hurting the baby to really enjoy it.

    None. It’s my personal choice. I’m fine with being without it until after the baby gets here. I’ve been sober during beer gardens and weddings. I still have a good time and don’t care that I’m not drinking with my friends and family.

    I had a half a glass of wine 2 days before my water broke. That’s it. My midwife actually told me to have a drink and relax. Lol

    My husband was realluy uncomfortable with alcohol during pregnancy, so I didn’t drink anything with either pregnancy.  My the time I gave birth with both kids, all I wanted was a cold, crisp beer!

    @abbyful:  Oh man-I wish! I think I might have someone sneak some in for me too. We are also hoping for unmedicated so I think this would be a nice reward 🙂

    I had a few sips of champagne and at about 26 weeks I had a glass of red. It made me feel a little drunky, I supose since I hadn’t drank anything for months. I felt a bit guilty but my doctor told me a glass everynow and then is FINE. She said the French drink a glass of red often while pregnant.

    None, my doctor seemed pretty relaxed on what I could consume. She just said no alcohol or raw fish, so I have been staying away from both.

    I have a glass of wine with dinner probably 3 times per week, We went to France and Italy 8 weeks ago and i had a glass most nights.

    I didn’t drink at all for the first 12 weeks but since then I have drunk a small amount often.

    I have a friend who looks down on me for doing it, she is also obese and ate really unhealthy during her pregnancy, I have had much better (actually perfect) test results for everything. To each their own, but I feel my very healthy exercise ( I finished boot camp up last week and still run and do weights at 38 weeks) and very healthy eating is much more valuable than not drinking a glass of really good red wine a few times a week!
