My friends looked at me kind of funny when I responded to this the way that I did, so I'm looking for some others input on this.
I went to a friend's birthday party the other night and everyone (besides me obviously) had a drink after dinner. She offered me a glass of wine and I looked at her funny as if she was joking. She wasn't. She was actually kind of shocked when I didn't want a glass of wine and went on to say that most pregnant women she knew allowed themselves a glass of wine every week or so.
When I was retelling the story to a friend, she agreed that an occasional glass of wine is fine during pregnancy. My mom even told me that she'd never drank with my older brother or sister but had a few glasses of wine while pregnant with me. Apparently in some parts of Europe it's completely customary to drink throughout the pregnancy. I feel like if I went to a bar and saw a pregnant woman sipping on a drink I would be completely shocked.
Am I being totally irrational when I find this crazy? Is there anyone out there who has had experience with this? I'm not out to judge anyone I'm really just curious to see what everyone's input is.
