Vices During Pregnancy

I read this blog from babycenter.com where a pregnant woman was denied a glass of wine in a restaurant where she was dining. I instantly remember my sister telling me before that a bottle of beer is just alright for a pregnant woman. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I didn’t take any alcohol. Or maybe I did on the first month because I didn’t know yet that I was already pregnant. I remember also smoking because prior to pregnancy I was already a smoker. But right after I found out that I’m positive, I stopped drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes. It’s bad for everybody’s health but I was more concerned with my growing baby inside. I think it’s also good that during my first trimester, I was experiencing lihi and cigars were one of those things I suddenly don’t like. I hated its smell as much as I hated the smell of alcohol, of garlic and surprisingly, of Kare-Kare (one of my favorite Pinoy dishes).

The woman who wasn’t served a glass of wine should be more thankful to the waiter/waitress who denied her of her request. I do understand that pregnant women could become more emotional over things (I was when I was pregnant!). Maybe the waiter/waitress was just concerned about her and the baby she’s carrying. I would be if I were the waitress. A friend of mine couldn’t get rid of smoking even when she got pregnant. I wish I could spank her and ban cigarettes in the subdivision where she’s living. But all I can do is tell her how bad it is specially for the baby. Well, the good news is that her baby came out normal.
