September 2013 Moms

Let's talk about booze.

I am not an alcoholic. And even though that sounds like something an alcoholic would say, this girl is being serious. I do live in the city and I live a very urban life-- that is true-- but there's not morning drinking or mind erasing benders here. 

That being said, ALL I can think about is beer. I want a beer so bad it is hard to think about much else. How weird is that? Full disclosure, I will likely drink during my pregnancy-- a personal choice-- but I've decided to let the first 12 weeks pass without having anything. But JEEZUS. I literally had a dream about a draft beer last night.

 

A DREAM I'M TELLING YOU.  

I have a blog that has nothing to do with babies. http://www.halftruthofawholelife.com

  • You can crave it all you want, but if you're drinking real beer on a regular basis and it sounds like you plan to you are selfish. Pick up an O'douls and suck it up. You're going to be someone's mother and that means making sacrifices for the rest of your life.

    That being said, I'm still thinking this is MUD.

    wrong. They have not been able to prove how much, or how little will harm the baby. Selfish if you can't give up a drink for 9 months

    Seriously? 

     

    At the risk of starting a Bump message board firestorm, yes. I certainly don't mean that I will drink like a normal person while growing a human being, but I will absolutely drink the occasional glass of wine and/or beer. There's very little evidence that doing so has any affect on pregnancy-- that I take stock in-- and has shown to reduce stress and relax pregnant ladies.

    It's interesting, though, living in the city, I don't know many women who don't drink a little during their pregnancies. Which I know is in stark contrast to what you find in more suburban areas.

    I live in downtown Chicago, I can assure you there is no difference. Women who care about their babies are not drinking whole glasses of wine or beer regularly throughout their pregnancies.

    Wrong. I'm not selfish. Great job with the name calling. Also, there was a study in 2010 that showed moms who drank 1 or 2 light drinks a week did not harm thier babies. So maybe you should do some reading before jumping on the bandwagon.

    Why would we talk about that??? Then the entire post about how it makes her feel better and relaxed would be void. Didn't you know? It's all about the mother in pregnancy, who gives a sh!t about the fetus?!? Babies love drinking beer. I give my toddler beer all the time. It relaxes him.

  • I'm really surprised by the response to this post. Or maybe the word is intrigued? I had absolutely no intention of causing such a stir, nor did I expect to have such an overwhelming response from people about my strange beer craving. 

    I completely respect the opinions and choices of each woman-- regardless of whether of not I agree, as is the case here.

    I can promise you all that I am neither ignorant nor selfish. I'm far more concerned with women eating Hot Pockets and Doritos during pregnancy than I am with myself-- a vegetarian yoga teacher-- having a few glasses of red wine during the course of the next nine months.

  • Hopefully this is MUD. As a medical provider, this post is very concerning. We don't know for certain how much alcohol can cause fetal alcohol syndrome- Why take the risk?  From the tone of your post, you sound selfish. I love beer and wine, but it's not happening during these 9 months. My future child's health is worth it. Hopefully you will reconsider.

    Wow, one whole study huh? I'll put that next to the one study that says smoking doesn't harm the fetus either. And we'll just disregard the decades of research that says otherwise.

    Huge difference between taking a sip, once.... And the OP. She isn't talking about sips. Women who have a glass of wine once or twice in the third tri don't get the side eye from me. Women who struggle to get past 12 weeks so they can have a beer.... Different story.

    I have a friend who had a beer craving while pregnant. She would have a sip of it here and there to deal with the craving. Her baby was fine. I didn't drink at all with DD, but I was high risk and a bundle of nerves. I may or may not choose to have a small glass of wine or a sip here and there like every couple of weeks or months. I don't know. Last week when I had my BFN I drank like a fish New Year's Eve and all. But havn't touched it since.
