Quoting kate & tilly:" Pregnant women in other countries still drink occasionally. I don't get why we think we need so many ... [snip!] ... measured serving of wine once in awhile I see no problem. Partying every weekend with friends ? Yea then I see the problem."


Yeah that was something that was brought up in the thing i read last night. That women in France are encouraged to drink red wine a few times a week, and their infant mortality rate was lower than ours. Not sure about problem and what not it didnt cover that. But the general gist of the article was everything in moderation is okay. Like fish can be dangerous to a fetus if you have too much mercury but women are still encouraged to eat a few servings of fish during their pregnancy.

Eh, I don't think the occasional glass of wine is a big deal, but I do understand people that are not willing to take the chance

I think moderation is key. I wouldn't do it first trimester. Also I'd actually measure how much I was drinking, and not be like oh a glass of wine.... I'll just fill this wine goblet to the top and call it a glass.

That's what I was thinking. My cousin had an alcohol dependency when she found out she was pregnant. It was really hard for her!

I drank red wine all throughout both of my pregnancies. It's pure red wine that is permitted, not all those fruity concoctions.

The AAP states that "Alcohol during pregnancy is one of the leading preventable causes of birth defects, intellectual disabilities, and other developmental disorders in newborns. There is no known safe amount of alcohol consumption during pregnancy"

For me, those are powerful words, and to me they mean that it is up to me to ensure that my childs development is not affected by my choices. When you are pregnant, there are so many things that are out of your control and when you do have the chance to be in charge of something, I would rather not waste the opportunity

I don't care what the AAP says. I'll take my German doctor's word over them. A German doctor has more merit to me than an American one, that's for sure. :lol:



And what's funny is in countries where they "allow" you to have a few glasses of wine and a bit of sushi, are the exact same countries that have lower birth defects/infant death rates than America. Imagine that.

I could be wrong about this but the whole avoid sushi thing is in case you happen to be the unlucky soul that gets a bad piece of fish and violently ill from it because it was not fresh enough right?

That and because its raw. Well not all sushi contains raw fish but you get what I'm saying. During pregnancy, its recommended that you eat well cooked foods.
