Rachel, some doctors say that if you drink small amounts of alcohol in moderation and not too often, you and you're baby will be fine. But just recently I learned quite a bit of information about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome - and if there was ANY chance ... even a .000000001% chance it could harm my baby, after seeing what could happen, I wouldn't so much as take a sip. Of course, some women drink their entire pregnancy and their babies turn out fine. I just wouldn't want to be the woman who had to sit and wonder if my baby would be born without the bridge to its nose, or very short fingers, or missing a few toes or fingers, just because I had a few drinks during the time those things were developing. By the way, a 12 oz. beer and a 4 oz. glass of wine is the same thing as a 12 oz. shot of liquor. Protect your baby. Don't drink. If you're craving beer or wine, which many pregnant women report, try non-alcoholic beer or <a style='text-decoration: none; border-bottom: 3px double;' href="" onmouseover="window.status='non-alcoholic wine'; return true;" onmouseout="window.status=''; return true;">non-alcoholic wine</a>. I know it may not taste as great, but it will taste similar and may help to feed the craving the safe way. Hope this helped!

THE OLD SCHOOL of thought was a few drinks were O.K. NOW, they see problems for the child with small amounts of alcohol. DON'T DRINK ANY ALCOHOL WHILE PREGNANT<<<ADR>>>
