While pregnant women in many cultures continue to have the occasional glass of wine, in the US, it's still considered forbidden to drink and gestate at the same time. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends abstaining from alcohol during the entirety of your pregnancy, mainly because no one has determined a safe limit for drinking alcohol during pregnancy, and that amount may vary from woman to woman and baby to baby. One caveat: If you had a drink (or a handful) before you found out you were pregnant, don't stress about it. You most likely didn't do any damage to your baby, but don't take chances going forward.
