DH has nipped upstairs having ooked out lovely mexican tea and asked me to open him a bottle of cider when I was in the kitchen

I'm not a drinker normally and can usually count the number of times I have a drink in one month on one hand... and even then its usually just 1 drink lol. Usually it gets left to get warm and not drank anyway!

I'm 13 weeks pg and honestly its driving me batty and I don't know why! I always said I wouldnt drink in pregnancy at all, but seriously..... It smells lush....

so I have had a cheeky mouthful (just half a sip and he wont even notice when he comes down any has gone)

Now I feel super guilty!

YABU - stop being so daft and pour a glass for yourself.

No. My maternity notes say 1 - 3 units a week is ok and although I am not drinking them (although am having a white wine spritzer once a fortnight) I do not think your unborn child will even notice the half a sip of cider. Chill out.

I was hoping you would say IWBU so i can make my case to have an actual glass myself lol.

its just DH has become the food and drink police and think he would go nutso lol :S

Tell DH if he is that bothered, perhaps he should stop drinking too in support? Then pour yourself a (small) glass.

Your dh needs to stop drinking and eating seafood cheeses liver pates and all other nice things too then grin

As a Somerset girl you are definitely being unreasonable. Get yourself some proper stuff.

really want to try some Stella Cidre but feel like a traitor

We have some proper stuff too :D don't worry. Fridge is always well stocked for company... Which is prob why I'm craving it lol

YABAbsurd and if My H had tried to police my food or drink while I was pregnant he'd have got a (metaphorical....probably) smack in the gob. Tell him to do his research and have a nice half of cider.

That Stella Cider is pretty disappointing, tbh, and I'm sure the alcohol content isn't particularly high. But I second everyone's view that the odd small glass is not going to do you any harm at all.

i am a binge drinker and for that reason alone i didn't touch a drop while pregnant....i can never just have the one.

but yanbu, a little sip wont hurt

So your DH doesn't want you to drink at all.... but asks you to open a cider for him? Nice.

Go on, have a small glass. It's basically apple juice smile

i have looked into drinking during pregnancy in great detail and i can tell u that a couple of units a week will do no harm at all, i have started to look at the bottles for units and % to find the best option. I'm usually a vodka girl so have started to buy a big bottle of smirnoff ice mix it with lemonade it's only 2.6 units but can make 4 or 5 glasses (after 2 or 3 i usually have had enough anyway). If your DP has a problem there is plently of research online he can read to put his mind at rest smile
