On Christmas Day I'll be 14 weeks and might tell everyone or might try to keep it quiet a few weeks longer...

I have this tradition with my nan in the evening when we all sit down to play a game she makes us all a snowball... (She actually pours out those tiny bottles of ready made ones!)

How much alcohol is it and could I have one?

And also... I think there are eggs in it?

I wouldn't risk it personally. Can u not just claim
To be driving? Congrats by the way smile

If its a small bottle it won't be many units will it?

I've just googled. A glass of snowball has 0.9 units if made by instructions. I'd have one! I'm having champagne myself (15 weeks )

I'm not going to get away with 'I'm driving',I live about 20 houses away from my parents house grin

the odd glass over Christmas isn't going to harm your baby - you're not planning on getting sloshed every night between now and June, are you?

as far as eggs go, no issue at all there as long as they were laid by lions (which they should be ib the U.K. or pasteurised.

I didn't realise eggs were laid by lions grin

I actually picked up one of those little bottles in the supermarket the other day.
I'm sure on the bottle it said 0.5 units. It made me think Yeay! I can have 4 of those.....!
