Meh, good to see research into Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is still coming along.

I feel kinda bad for all the hate mail NPR and anyone else that carries the story will get from the hardline teetotalers.

//I still want to go back and smack two different mothers that continued to smoke during their pregnancies and rationalized it with "The babies will be smaller and it won't hurt as much to push it out".

Hey, I saw a website about bottoms up pregnant ladies.
 
2012-06-20 04:48:23 PM
Okay for that research. Now, who is going to look into the effects of bath salts ingestion on pregnant moms? Will she eat the face off her new born baby or off her anesthesiologist?
 
2012-06-20 04:48:26 PM
The thing I like about pregnant ladies is, you know they will put out. Mix in some beers and it is a sure thing.

This has been known for decades. It's just easier, from a Public Health standpoint, to say "Drinking = Bad" rather than "Be sensible and moderate".

Andromeda: Odds that a woman will still be judged for having an occasional drink while pregnant- 100%


Yup. I swear, if some idiot wants to mean to someone who can't run that fast, they'll just start making shiat up. Hell, I got caught at the salon and was told I would give my baby brain damage by dyeing my hair while pregnant. I told her, " that'd be neat, then I could put a jar up at the E-Z Mart and I'd be on easy street!" and went back to getting my drapes as far from the carpet's color as possible. ;).

Andromeda: Odds that a woman will still be judged for having an occasional drink while pregnant- 100%


And. since the whole brouhaha about drinking while pregnant didn't start until the 1980s or so, most of those judging are people whose mothers almost certainly drank while carrying them.
 
2012-06-20 04:55:03 PM
Why chance it? Do you really need a drink that bad? I love beer, but if I were a woman, and I knew that there was even a slight risk involved, you can bet your ass I would wait the 9 months to imbibe.

When my mum was pregnant, the doctor actually suggested moderate amounts of Guinness to help her put on some weight. I have a hard time counting to potato but I was a healthy weight when born.

Odds that a man who takes a drink or two will be judged harshly by his pregnant wife - 200 proof.

That'll be $19.99 for the new keyboard plus tax and shipping, expect an invoice soon.

My mom's doctor told her to drink a glass of wine before feedings to help the milk let down.

I was a gooooooooood baby : )

I don't know about an ad, but I do know that from a nutritional standpoint, a Guinness is pretty much the best post-partum beverage imaginable for a new mother.

moderate weekly drinking and even a couple of benders here and there aren't actually that bad for you while you're carrying your child.

Yes, but it could be bad for the baby.

I got judged for having a Starbucks cup while pregnant. I couldn't believe I had to say "it's hot chocolate" to someone.

What I take away from this article is the pregnant woman doesn't need to worry about the alcohol in the food she eats, having a glass of wine with a full dinner, or taking part in a champagne toast at a wedding, but not necessarily "sure go ahead and cut loose at your friends bachelorette party".

It's highly recommended for women who have problems maintaining a milk supply (one a day, not 12).

Sure you can cut loose at your friends bachelorette party. Hell the article even says occasional binge drinking doesn't appear to have any effect on child development.

You'll just get a shiatton of nasty glances from people. But fark em, who cares I say! Drink up lady!

I have heard about someone who tried to live on only guinness and they ended up getting scurvy. Probably just an urban legend though.

I guess I'm the only person on board with the "dude, restrain yourself just a little bit for 9 months" opinion. I'd cease drinking during that time as well if it made things easier on my wife...
