Hi I'm just wondering if you all stopped drinking alcohol completely as soon as you found out you were pregnant. I'm just wondering if the odd glass of wine here and there is ok? Mischa :wv

I have the odd glass of red wine maybe once every 2 weeks to a month.

I haven't drank since I found out but don't really know what I'll do over xmas, especially with dinner nights out, I might have a glass over wine but that would be it.

I have the occasional bottle of beer or cider. One maybe every 2-3 weeks.

Only starting to ttc was with my doc last week, she said none at all for the first 12 weeks as this is when the baby gets everything from you, after that the odd drink won't hurt but nothing excessive.

Ooooops, I meant to add I didn't drink anything for the first 12 weeks, but since then I have had a glass of wine once or twice a month!

Does it matter if you had a MAJOR session the weekend before you got the BFP??
