I could murder an ice cold alcoholic beverage!

Just seen the apple bite Smirnoff advert and being 35 weeks tomorrow I've been alcohol free since day one of knowing but thanks to the tv I could murder an ice cold vodka and coke! Along with pate, and a baileys grin

That is all!

I really fancy a gin and tonic with lots of ice..

I really want pâté and I didn't have it very often before I was pregnant.

I haven't really fancied any alcohol until I saw that on tv. I'm one of those 'if I can't have it I can easily go without' but would help me drift off to sleep too grin

I seriously want a glass of rose wine. There's half a bottle of dp's sitting in the fridge and I so badly wanted a glass earlier on. It just looked so inviting and I suppose I could have had a small glass seen as I'm 38 weeks but I've been alcohol free since I found out I was pg so a part of me would feel really guilty as I've only got (fingers crossed) two weeks to go!

Little bean you haven't got long! 4 weeks tops if little one doesn't appear on time! Just think you can celebrate with a bottle if you wanted to once baby bean is here smile

The only thing even close to a satisfying Friday night beverage has been a Koppaberg non-alcholic pear cider with loads of ice.

Still needs a vodka in it though.

I could murder one of those right now!!!!!!!

I badly want oysters. I'm dreaming of them hmm

Just have a drink. One won't do any harm. Especially at your stage of pregnancy.

Ice cold tonic water in a wine glass is a good substitute!

A very wise lady pointed me in the direction of Fosters Radler. Sort of a pre-mixed cloudy lemonade shandy. It's 2%, 0.6 units per bottle and really hits the spot if you like Smirnoff Ice. And the best thing is, because they're so light, you can have more than 1 and still be within the maximum 2-3 unit limit. And they do taste alcoholic.

I really wanted a Corona this week with a nice lime in it. Ooh... still 16 weeks to go but I can't wait!!

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Sun 16-Feb-14 05:28:07

Just have a drink! it won't kill either of you!

Aoifebelle Sun 16-Feb-14 08:25:07

My oh just bought me a load of alcohol free bavarias. They are really hitting the spot for me. Ice cold in a nice bath. Does me.

sarahquilt Sun 16-Feb-14 08:30:51

just have a cold beer or glass of white wine. it won't do any harm.

theborrower Sun 16-Feb-14 08:37:47

They do alcohol free Koppaberg?? I'm so looking for that next time I'm at the supermarket.

I felt like this yesterday, think it was more just a really refreshing cold drink that I needed.

livingzuid Sun 16-Feb-14 08:38:41

I have hg so it's a no go. Sadly.

MummyPig24 Sun 16-Feb-14 08:52:29

I had a glass of champagne last weekend at an afternoon tea and it was lush.

I never really drank before, not much opportunity/reason/money with two kids already. So I haven't felt like I missed it but the champagne was really lovely!

MistletoeBUTNOwine Sun 16-Feb-14 08:53:58

Just have one!! A glass of wine now will NOT give your baby FAS for goodness sake.

Bb14 Sun 16-Feb-14 08:56:31

Glad to see so many sensible ladies accepting the odd drink towards the end of the pregnancy is fine. As I know I'm only having one a week I've been splashing out on decent wine!

LePetitPont Sun 16-Feb-14 10:23:18

Another vote for the 0% Bavarias - we got the white beers, tastes a lot like Erdinger - a real treat!

Looking forward to post 12 weeks and can have the odd small glass of wine. Or champagne - like your style, MummyPig24!

HotCrossPun Sun 16-Feb-14 10:32:32

36+5 here and I had a delicious glass of ice cold Rose last night. Twas delish.

squizita Sun 16-Feb-14 10:37:56

0% Erdinger or Bavaria (superior to Becks), and Cidona (Tescos or Onells pubs sell it) for a cider taste.

Now if someone can replicate a fake runny fried egg ...

squizita Sun 16-Feb-14 10:40:27 others have mentioned later on the odd glass is ok. I'm 'high risk' 1st trimester andanyway the smell of proper wine/spirits make me gag at the mo.
