Are there any safe levels of alcohol consumption during pregnancy?
Just my opinion, but I wouldn't touch ONE DROP of any alcohol during pregnancy and add on no smoking as well.
My daughter's doctor told her after the 1st trimester. a glass of wine weekly would be fine.
I wouldn't drink knowingly during pregnancy because I saw the effects of FAS with a family member whose mother drank. That being said, I did have a few drinks before I knew I was pregnant with my second son (he was a surprise) and I really worried perhaps I had unknowingly done damage having those couple of glasses of wine on two different nights, but he turned out beautiful and healthy.
It's just SO hard to say, some babies turn out fine and other babies end up with FAS when the mom drinks during pregnancy. It's just not worth the risk in my eyes. I beat myself up for months over those few glasses of wine and I guess that wasn't necessary either, but it's just a risk that is so easy to avoid.
There are no safe levels. I would never drink alcohol during a pregnancy. NEVER EVER! Read about FAS here: http://kidshealth.org/parent/medical/brain/fas.html
