I definitely drank it during my first pregnancy. I also drank Fre wine. I didn’t have any complications and my daughter is perfectly healthy. I also drank a partial beer or cider beer or glass of wine every now and then in the 2nd & 3rd trimester.
There are some really good tasting NA beers out there. I never knew there were so many to choose from until I was pregnant.

CityBearBride: Yep. And having a dinner of pasta with vodka tomato sauce and bananas foster for dessert means you’re a raging alcoholic.

Bellagiobride: It’s fine really, I spent my entire pregnancy craving beer and wine, I don’t know why because I don’t drink that much so its a mistery lol, I had like 1 or 2 non alcoholic beers and my baby girl turned out just fine, beautiful and healthy. Just tell her to not drink that much

Rabbit56: Seriously? JUICE contains small amounts of alcohol. As well as a lot of other things. Must remember to go live in plastic bubble while pregnant…I’m truly amazed the species has survived so far

Every time I see threads like this, I want to reach for my Gif maker…
I’ve said it before, but my Grandmother’s generation drank weak beer whilst pregnant, because it was considered safer than drinking tap water at the time. They also drank Guiness to bring in their breastmilk. And yet, somehow, the human race survived…
We are talking about the most minute amount of alcohol here. Trace amounts of alcohol are in loads of things, including decongestants, sterilising fluid and sterile wipes. I mean, are pregnant women supposed to live in a bubble for nine months, or something?

ann.reid.9277: The most dangerous thing that a woman does while pregnant is ride in a car. Seriously. Risk is inherent in living. Everyone chooses what risks they are willing to accept and those that they aren’t. Everyone accepts some level of risk. Otherwise you couldn’t function.
Also, choosing not to drink during your pregnancy isn’t being on a high horse. It’s the “why a pregnant woman would indulge in any practice that was less than optimum” comment that is judegmental and said from atop a steed.

Another currently pregnant lady chiming in. I think it’s really easy to say a pregnant lady should give up everything and live in her bubble for nine months until you’re actually pregnant. Before I was pregnant, all I drank was water, a cup of coffee in the morning, and wine. Now, I wasn’t (nor am I) a raging alocholic, but that is what my taste preference was.
I’m in my second trimester now and haven’t had a glass of wine yet, but am strongly considering it. It’s hard to always be in social situations or at special events where you’re the only one not drinking. Plus, water gets boring.
And it’s easy for someone to judge me for one glass of wine, but people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones – how many unhealthy choices do you make in a day (such as not working out, or drinking excessive amounts of pop/soda, for example)?
Also much love to the ladies who say juice has alcohol in it! I can’t believe I’m wasting my daily intake on OJ when I could be having a big ol’ vodka soda!! (just kidding)

Better not drink ginger ale either! It’s got “ale” right in the name!!!
