DH and I used to share a bottle of wine ~3x/week. It was tough to abstain for the first week or two, more out of habit but after that, not that hard at all surprisingly! Never really had morning sickness, but wine just didn't appeal to me. I would have a sip of wine every so often, like if we had cooked up a special meal, just to taste the flavor. I actually think it's fine to have a glass every once in a while during pregnancy, but I didn't indulge because the craving just wasn't there. [ Reply | More ]

Thanks. I've been on top of that for the last five years. When she was three she firmly told him don't at me. He was annoyed and told me. He also knows that he can never lay a hand on her. He teases her frequently in a way that I don't like (he used to do the same to me and it often involved putting me down ) but it is unfortunately something that I can't control either than addressing it when I hear it or if she says something to me. Nevertheless she loves her father and looks forward to weekends with him. [ Reply | More ]
