I personally couldn't--God forbid something turned out to be wrong, I'd blame that wine and never forgive myself.

Re: wine?

With my third, my dr recommended a glass of red wine when my Braxton hicks got bad (they started early at like 14 weeks). Of course she told me to try water first but that red wine is a muscle relaxant.

Now. I'm on #5 and I have a glass when we go out with friends or when we have a nice dinner. I'm actually planning on having some tonight bc BH are picking up agin and water is not helping. I usually have a smaller glass and milk it for a while :)

Re: wine?

I had a sip here and there after 20 weeks but not more than that even though my doctor said the occasional glass was fine

It's fine. As far long as you are, it's perfectly fine.

I dont think there is anything wrong with a little, as most here mentioned.

I wanted to have a little champagne for our 1st anniversary, but it was too early on (About 17-18 wks). Otherwise, I don't really see any occasions where it would be worth the risk for me. If my Dr recommended for getting labor started or calming braxton hicks, etc. then I would :)

I had sips of wine every now and then. DD is 1000000% perfect.

I had a full glass here and there. Especially at the end like you are.
And my DD was and is still perfect.
I see no issue with it

Ditto to this.

I've been told it's ok but I wouldn't drink any.

To me, a single glass of wine isn't really going to relax me enough to do anything anyhow and if, God Forbid, anything happened to the baby, I'd totally blame myself forever (even if it wasn't the wine's fault).

DH and I buy sparkling grape juice to have with dinner once in a while - it's a great little treat and makes me feel like it's champagne lol Chat Icon
