These days, I think the only thing a pregnant woman is allowed to eat is broccoli. Ok, so there's more than just broccoli, but sometimes it feels that way.
I believe on the forbidden list is lunch meat and hot dogs (who knew), cheese such as blue cheese, feta and brie (some of my favorites), raw fish (oh, how I miss sushi), raw eggs (no Caesar salad here), and of course alcohol.
I recently learned of non-alcoholic beer and it has become a touchy subject in our house. Sometimes I just miss the taste, the smell...really I do! It's amazing how bad you want something when you can't have it. While non-alcoholic beer and wine don't contain much alcohol, they still have a bit (less than 0.5%).
I figure our parents and grandparents smoked, drank and took over the counter pain medication harder than Tylenol and we all turned out ok, for the most part anyways. Can one non-alcoholic beverage every now and then harm anything? I'm off to the doctor tomorrow and on my list of questions is "can I or can't I". To be continued...
