Ok so after finding out that I was pregnant (still sounds weird.. and yes, I'll probably be saying that a lot more heh).... I've been googling up information, visiting various forums etc.
Well, I came across one, looked around. Seems pretty active so I start going there often.
A few days ago, some person posts up a thread in the First Tri section and asked if anyone else is going to be having a drink during Christmas or New YEars.
SOOOOOO many women plan on drinking!! WHAT... THE.... FUCK???
Have people just never heard of fetal alcohol syndrome??? Do they not realize how important the first trimester is???
Alcohol is a poison! Sure it's a fun tasty poison, but not when you're pregnant!! UGH that just upsets me so much. I don't understand why a woman would risk it. It must be from women who have never had a miscarriage or struggled. I just think it's totally selfish to do something like that.
I know people disagree and will bring up soandso study that says *insert amount* is OK to drink....
What a load of horse crap IMO.
And it seems like it's always the ones that know someone that drank all the time and their baby is ok or some such bullshit.
I guess I'm just extra sensitive to that b/c of all of my losses and struggles. I just don't see why anyone would do something that has a potential risk during the time of your pregnancy when it's most important you're eating healthy. *shrugs*
Whatever... their bodies and all that jazz.... sigh...
