Okay, so I've had passing cravings like gummy bears and pickles...but lately I've been really craving alcohol. Before I got pregnant, I maybe had one or two drinks A YEAR if that. It's just not something I enjoy and it makes me feel like crap. But recently I've been craving a rum and coke, or a glass of wine, or a screwdriver. Every time I see people drinking on tv or someone mentions it I practically start drooling. What the heck!? Obviously that's not a craving I can or ever would indulge in while I'm pregnant. I know a glass of wine a week is okay during pregnancy, but I still don't feel comfortable with it.

It's just really strange to me to actually want to drink alcohol when before I got pregnant I would purposely avoid situations where people were drinking.

There is non alcoholic wine. Maybe that would help a bit? You could try that?

Im not a big drinker either..maybe once or twice a year. And ive been wanting a drink too. But i think its maybe just the stress making a drink sound darn good.

Before pregnancy, I used to drink a glass of wine a few nights a week. So I crave a glass of wine pretty badly at times. Or a Bombay Sapphire martini dry with olives. When I have these cravings, I just drink Kool-Aid out of a wine or martini glass. Strangely, it works. Haha.

Haha. No. Bloody Marys are not on my cravings list. haha. Good idea though! I hate tomato juice and anything spicy I'll probably try the non alcoholic wine though!

I have been too!! I used to have a couple glasses of wine a week and can't wait for another 6 or 7 months to pass so I can have a couple! I'm not a big drinker, but I do like to indulge.

I am in the same boat with the wine. Several days a week, I would give my right arm for a glass. Alas, it will be a while before I enjoy the fruit of that vine again...
