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 ]
