August 2013 Moms

One beer.

Ugh....DH just opened a bottle of microbrewed heffeweizen from a local place and proffered me a sip and it. tastes. heavenly. Like, the kind of the thing pre-preggo me would say I would give my first-born for.

Fess up - anybody on here follow the "one drink every now and then" custom? I have never been this close to giving in to it. DH, FWIW, says I "only" have 4 more weeks and would likely not be too keen on it. 

Talk me down from the ledge, people.

Re: One beer.

  • Not worth it. It's 4 weeks. Make sure you request it for your first post-delivery meal; I've already told DH I fully expect him to smuggle  in a bottle of Moscato to go in my water bottle Stick out tongue

  • I had a quarter of a cup of summer shandy the other day... It was sinfully delicious! It's not very alcoholic, so I enjoyed my small quarter cup.

  • I can wait till the end. Although I would love to, there really isn't much point. A jug of sangria will be waiting for me after along side a rum and coke.. Maybe a Cesar.. Mm

  • I will fess up, I finally split a beer w dh last month, it was a REALLY good beer and I couldn't resist. Most doctors say a glass of red wine is ok sparingly in the last trimester though... I will probably get flamed for admitting it but whatever, I haven't had a drink since then and I won't be drinking tonight or prob the rest of my pregnancy for that matter as I have been feeling very nauseous in these final couple weeks

  • I know. I know. I really do. And truth be told, the first two trimesters were a breeze. I'm a summer beer girl, though, so I knew these last few weeks would be the hardest, even though you'd think I'd be used to it by now.

    Adding a bottle of heffeweizen to the first post-baby meal list - along with a giant Italian cold-cut sub and some sashimi. But not necessarily all at the same time.

  • I never did with DD, partly because it just didn't sound good and partly because I was a total sanctimonious FTM and all. 

    This time I have had a small glass of wine once every week or two since the middle of second tri. There's plenty of research that's concluded that that little alcohol is absolutely harmless. The US has the only zero tolerance policy for alcohol while pregnant... Yet the highest rate of FAS. 

    I won't dare touch a piece of lunch meat or pop a single pill, though. Everyone picks and chooses with what they're comfortable with.

    This is me too! And it's SO rare I will touch any kind of caffeine, soda or coffee or artificial sweetner. even tho I'm a coffee freak! I've had maybe 5 cups my entire pregnancy. I can honestly say I'd rather split one beer or drink a half a glass of wine than take any kind of OTC or prescription medicine they scare the crap out of me more than anything!

  • I've had some wine or beer sporadically since second tri. Did my research on it and an comfortable with my choice. For the most part it doesn't sound good but occasionally ....

  • Definitely not something I would do or have done. Not risking something I've worked 4 long hard years to get.

  • I have a drink of DH's evrery once in a while. I was a huge beer lover prepregnancy so I honestly just miss the taste. Just by taking a drink gives me that taste which is satisfying for now. But I will be happily awaiting my first beer post pregnancy. DH jokes he will bring me one with my first meal in the hospital after birth!
  • I had a sip of wine and that's the extent of it. FI actually brews beer and our home smells like a craft brewery at least once per month. It's evil of him to do this to me! 

    I've craved--CRAVED! peach sangria. I cannot wait until I can have it again.

    I stopped drinking alcohol around the time we started trying to conceive, and haven't had any since. I look forward to enjoying a glass of wine or a cocktail after our son arrives, but it's not something that I feel like I need or that I'm not willing to completely give up. I wasn't a huge drinker beforehand, though, and my husband doesn't really drink, so I just don't feel that tempted.

  • I just want to say... I'm glad we can all have a semi controversial convo and not flame the crap out of each other, I feel so comfortable talking to all you ladies and that's why aug 13 rocks! That is all...

  • I have a friend who is an OB and she drank a pretty nice sized glass of wine every now and again. She was confident that it was fine and her child is very healthy. I have full confidence in her as a practitioner, I am just not even interested in tempting myself.

    Yeah, I know. Sometimes I'm in the third tri forum and I'm like "ouch, ouch, ouch... it's too hot in here!"

  • I stuck my fork into my FI's beer and licked it when we were out to eat about a month ago. He ordered a Boulevard Wheat and I do not even like it to begin with. Bleh, didn't even taste good! He had ordered a Coors and when I had gone to the bathroom the waitress came back out and said that they were out.. That was all I needed to make me not want anymore until baby is here. It also made me feel guilty for doing so. PP is right though about picking and choosing, I haven't been perfect. I ate sushi yesterday and loved every single minute of it, and definitely didn't feel bad about it. 
  • I have had a sip or two of DH wine if he opens a really good bottle. Usually it's to tell him to get another one and save it for me. Or not to bother and to drink it up himself. But it's not a whole glass.

    With DS I had a half glass of champaign on New Year's Eve. We were inducing jan 2.

  • Nope. And I definitely enjoyed drinking pre-pregnancy. IMO, a buzzed pregnant woman is NOT cute...

    This. I am perfectly fine with waiting 5 weeks to have a drink if I really want one that bad.

  • Last pregnancy I had a glass of red wine on our anniversary, and a glass of champagne for new years eve. I was in my third trimester. I have a pretty high tolerance so I didn't even feel the alcohol because it was a small amount.

    This pregnancy I haven't had any except for a sip of the wine pairings that the sommelier sent out for my husband when we did a tasting menu for my birthday.

  • Occasionally I'll have a sip of DH's beer if he has one.  That is one thing I REALLY miss since I've been pregnant. I don't think I could ever drink any more than that though.  I DO look forward to having one after baby gets here!  Man what I wouldn't do for a summer shandy or a Hell or High Watermelon!

    We said goodbye to our sweet Taylor Ashley on August 8, 2012.
  • I had a glass of red wine yesterday. It was the first time I've done it since we found out LO was cooking. I sipped on it for almost 3 hours and it was the most satisfying glass of wine Ive ever had. I wasn't buzzed at all but went to bed SO relaxed, I can understand why some OB's tell women to have a glass in early labor.
    My OB says a glass of wine or 1 beer on occasion is perfectly fine. To each their own, I don't feel guilty about my glass last night. After It helped me relax so much I will likely have another at some point considering the days are getting more and more uncomfortable.

  • Wasn't too much of a drinker pre pregnancy so going without has been pretty easy.  I actually prefer my virgin drinks to the real thing anyway...sounds crazy I know!

  • I'm not a big drinker so it's been easy to abstain both my pregnancies. But I'm no saint. I have probably gone over the recommended caffeine amounts dozens of times. Whoops.

    This x 100. All I want is a freaking salami sandwich. Definitely looking forward to a bit of wine though, but not immediately PP. My birthday is  Sept. 2 so I'm going to hold off until then if I can!

  • I almost never drink anyway, so I haven't had any problem abstaining. I have, however, had some diet soda/crystal light and hot dogs, which some probably avoided for aspertame and nitrates. Whateva.
