Hello! Just wanted to know if anybody else has or is experiencing what I am. I'm 15 weeks preg and seem to have become completely intolerant to alcohol. Now don't get me wrong, I'm talking about very small quantities - a small drink once a week - but even though morning sickness seems to have now mostly gone, the day after having one drink I've been vomiting ALOT. So now having had this happen a few times, I'm gonna give up drinking completely - has anyone else experienced this?
it will make that post-birth champagne so much nicer!
I think what you go off is so personal mine was spicy food, curry in particular. I cooked one a couple of days before I found out I was pg, and was convinced the kitchen smelt of it for months after (no exaggeration). I wanted to vomit every time I walked in. Think DS was 18m before I ate curry again.
nope, asides from a month or so in the first trimester where the very idea of alcohol made me feel ill, no problems at all other than the fact that i have to stop at one, oh and the judgemental looks that a visibly pregnant woman gets drinking a glass of wine in public. seriously what is WRONG with people. no-one comments when ginormously overweight pregnant people stuff their faces with disgusting junk food, yet someone that is of a healthy weight, exercises daily, eats a diet consisting of lean protein, wholegrains, appropriate amounts of dairy and loads of fresh fruit and veggies, is given funny looks for having a glass of wine!
My tolerance was permanently affected. Not so much next day as I've never done hangovers but I can't drink as much now before feeling the affects.
A little alcohol if you can handle it isn't going to do any harm. There's a really good article that I'd post if I was online, it says that too much pressure is put on women and that the guidelines aren't effective because the sensible women don't need them but it will unnecessarily guilt them if they drunk before they knew whereas the women who do need them aren't going to care.
mmmmmm, yes - my tolerance has never been great and I have been known to have some absolutely terrible sickie hangovers!! So maybe this is just magnified in pregnancy.
Ridiculous that you should get disapproving looks for having a glass of wine!!! How judgmental!!
My decision has been made, Im just gonna lay off, its just not worth it! today has just been horrendous, only just been able to keep food down! after two SMALL white wine spritzers! Ne'mind - I've done enough drinking to last me a lifetine tbh!!
I haven't managed to drink enough to get a hangover. Like ilove said, I can't stand the judgemental looks if I dare to so much as sip DP's drink in public and when I try a glass of wine at home I manage about three sips before my arms feel like they've been injected with concrete. Anyone else get this?
