That is an issue that you should discuss with your attending physician. There are a number of studies that have determined with virtual certainty that drinking while pregnant can cause low birth weight, a variety of developmental problems, and actual alcohol addiction in the fetus, which must be treated after the child is born, if the mother drinks alcoholically herself.

A minimum harmful dose has not been established.

How does alcohol influence the baby in the womb?

When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, so does her baby. Drinking may harm her developing baby. (Fetus) Alcohol passes from the mother's blood, into the babies blood. It can damage and affect the growth of the babies cells. Studies do not yet show that it is safe for a pregnant woman to drink even a small amount, as different babies react differently to even the tiniest bit of alcohol. Although the risk is higher with heavy alcohol use- any amount of alcohol may affect your developing baby. You may be able to prevent FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) by not drinking at all when you are pregnant. Hope this helps. :)
