Pissed and Pregnant


Hi guys, I was watching this show last night, had recorded it on Living TV last week. Basically was all about womens drinking habits while pregnant.
I was in shock at the amount of women who said they still drank normally.
I can't imagine wanting to drink knowing that there's a possibility it will affect your baby!
What does everyone else think? As I've obviously never been pregnant before I'd be interested to hear mothers opinions as they've been through the situation.

Im not a big drinker anyway but i would definitely not try and do anything that could be dangerous for a baby. I think they need all of the help they can get when they are cooking!
I think if it is the odd occasional small glass of wine and that helps the mother relax as well then it wouldnt be a problem.

I personally plan to be tee-total...for me it is giving up caffine so i will fully understand anyone who will miss their alcohol.

I was never a big drinker before I fell pregnant but I always enjoyed nights out with friends etc. But as soon as we started trying I didn't touch a single drop. Especially when I was pregnant. At Christmas everyone kept saying that a glass of wine with lunch wouldn't hurt but to be honest I didn't even feel like one. My daughter is now 6 months old and I still haven't drank any alcohol, I seem to have lost my taste for it as the thought of it now is quite off putting!

I can't understand women that carry on drinking heavily. It's not exactly unknown the harm it can do, my personal opinion is that those are very selfish women.

Yes i'm with mom22boys

i think the odd glas of wine is probably ok, although i doubt i would touch a single drop when i am actually pregnant, but smoking during pregnancy really makes me mad. because most people that smoke do not have the "odd cigarette" that's just plain irresponsible imo

I am very anti-smoking anyway. I hate it so much and i hate even more seeing moms with fags in their mouths whilst tending to their LO or pregnant.
It actually makes me feel quite angry!

Oh I remember watching that, I rang my mum up halfway through having a big rant! I was talking on the phone when it showed you that actress pretending to be pregnant and drunk, so I was ranting away 'omg there is this woman who is really pi**ed, she looks about 8/9 months, can't get off the floor cos she supping on a bottle of wine, rant rant rant! then when I come off the phone I realised it wasn't real! did you notice that only one person actually did something and he was a young lad, first thing he did was take the bottle off her everyone else just watched her.

I am a big big drinker, but there is nooo way I would. At the end of the day it's personal choice - i've heard it's ok to have an occaisional glass but I'd be too worried! Xx

Ya I found the actress so shocking when I didn't know she was an actress, and to be honest even when I knew I still found it upsetting!
I'm glad I'm not the only person who feels that way lol
I wouldn't be a big drinker at all so maybe that's why it would be very easy for me to just stop completely.

Smoking while pregnant is something that disgusts me too, even seeing people smoking around young kids but I generally can't stand smoking anyway.

After watching it I just so needed a rant lol
