    I would not touch a drop of alcohol during any stage of pregnancy but thats just my opinion, its just not worth the risks. i was pregnant during my 21st and not having any alcohol never bothered me one bit as i knew there was a special little person growing inside me :)

    I had a few drinks when I was pregnant hun & I have a very healthy little girl

    If you want a drink then go for it! You're not stupid & no not to binge drink so have a glass of wine! You're only 18 once!!

    I dont see anything wrong with having the "odd" drink during pregnancy but if im completely honest and i were you, id air on the side of caution due to the problems you had with your last pregnancy (obv not drink related)

    If you understand what i mean?

    I have had 3 glasses of wine since i found out i was pregnant. They were all on seperate occasions. If you feel you can have just the one drink then i think thats ok. Have fun and be safe though.

    As it's a special occasion your 18th! I think you should def treat yourself to a small glass of wine, make sure its a decent one too. The odd one is not going to do you any harm. My sister was pregnant with her twins and had a glass of champagne at my other sisters wedding. You are over 12wks so 2-3 over your whole pregnancy won't do any harm. The MW wouldn't say so if she thought it was a bad idea! have a great time and enjoy your glass. You could always opt for a sprizer if it makes you feel better! Anyway have fun hun!!!

    I decided i was going to have a glass at xmas and im sure if i was 18 i would have a glass then as well!
    I personally dont think 1 glass will harm past the 12 week mark but i wouldnt touch anything before that

    What ever you decide hope you have a great 18th!!!!

    to be honest, baby is so small, and a glass of wine can make me tipsy(im a lightweight) so it made me wonder what effect it would have on my tiny baby, so im proud to say, i have not had any alcohol for the last 26 weeks. Everyone is different, but personally I have not had any, i think the first tri was scarier with regards to booze as if anything happened to my bean i would blame the booze regardless of whether it was the cause or not. 1 glass will not harm your baby, but i would avoid it personally. I just had my 23rd birthday and i drank shloer :D hehe

    I agree with Melbo, if one glass can make someone a lil tipsy, just imagine what it could do to LO... However I say it is your choice, and you do as you wish, but I personally wouldnt see one small glass of wine even worth it, considering the chances being taken.

    I too agree. I am a wine drinker and love the occasional glass of wine a few times a month, but would never drink it while pregnant. It is up to you though. Everyone has their own opinions though. I would get a virgin drink like a bloody mary but the virgin type which means no alcahol. Still tastes like you are having an alcaholic beverage though. That is probably what I would drink if I were going out. Good luck hun. One glass of wine can make me feel great so you can imagine the impact on a fetus.
