I was on another site, and a few pregnant women said that they thought having a drink every now and then while pregnant was okay. I had to wonder if anyone here thinks it's okay. Aren't people concerned about fetal alchohol poisoning? Just curious. I would never drink while pregnant. I think it's just too big of a risk.

I think that some say it is ok for a glass of wine or a sip of this or that. I don't know though. I would never drink while pregnant. I wouldn't drink ingeneral though either. When I was breasfeeding my son I had a sip of a drink my aunt made and he wasn't due to feed again for a few hours. I don't think there was any harm in that at all, but that sip is the most I have "drank" in years lol.
You are not going to see fetal alcohol poisining with one drink. The biggest risk to the fbaby is the first trimester when you are most likely to be unaware of the pregnancy and drink. I personally didn't drink during ether of my pregnancies, but I don't see anything wrong with one or two drinks throghout.
