find a local MDC mama to spare some water kefir grains, it's a little fermented and bubbly and may do the trick.  I have extra I could mail too.  http://www.keeperofthehome.org/2011/04/how-to-make-water-kefir.html

Oh, all I wanted was Midori when I was pregnant. It was the strangest thing. I don't even like melons, let terrible melon liquor. We'd hold a lot of parties in my house back in the day. Before the kids made that a little less practical. A friend of mine would always come over with a bottle of Midori. I obviously wasn't going to let myself drink any of the stuff, but sometimes I would just find myself by the bar smelling the open bottle and feeling more than a little insane as my friends passed by.

I am an alcohol lover and definitely missed drinking dearly while pregnant. I did take the occasional sip of scotch or have a half-glass of wine during the third trimester. AND IT WAS GLORIOUS.

 

I poured myself a Glenlivet Nadura when my water broke, before I went to the hospital, to celebrate and calm my nerves. I brought a single malt (but can't remember which one!) to the hospital in case I wanted one after delivery. I didn't.

 

But I did have a good time with alcohol early on. I spent two days in the hospital and had some trouble latching the baby on. So frustrating. I was sooo happy to go home, and the first thing I did was pour myself a nice dark beer, install myself in the rocking chair, and nurse my son. He latched right on and went from side to side for hours and I was just so relieved. But at home, with a beer, I was more relaxed, and he was more relaxed.

 

There is a picture of me sipping a scotch and nursing my week-old son on Facebook.

 

Main point of my post: alcohol is great. I think you could afford a sip or two if you really crave it now. And remember you'll be able to go back to drinking (moderately!) once the baby is born.

I have never been much of a drinker but damn if I don't want one hard core. Cold white wine or a mimosa or a bloody mary sounds amazing.  I don't even want a whole one, I don't know what the deal is.  Omg, it's going to be over 90 today and Sam Adams summer ale would make my whole week.  *sigh*

Yes! I have had some days where I was just dying for a margarita. Vodka tonic, too, but margaritas.. mm. Took my husband to brunch at a Mexican restaurant on Father's Day and he ordered one. The only reason he got away with it was that it was Father's Day. Otherwise he'd have been guilt tripped out of it posthaste. I'm actually completely comfortable having half a beer or glass of wine here and there (i.e. less than once a week)--and have found that I don't really want any more than that, sometimes less--but I stay away from hard liquor. Come on, September. ;)

Guiness.  I craved Guiness during my second trimester.

 

Midwife said it probably meant my body wanted iron.

I agree.

 

I had small amounts of alcohol during my pregnancy and DD does not have FAS. 

 

I have a friend who swears by the odd bit of cocaine during pregnancy.  Incidently, her child is gifted and advanced not only in academic skills but social skills as well.  It makes you wonder.

You guys are KILLING ME! I want a margarita so bad now after reading all this lol

 

I've been drinking a bit of muscato here or there since I got pregnant. I've had maybe a total of 3 glasses, spread out into little half or quarter cups once in a while. It's the most I'm going to allow and I want so much more. I used to be able to kill off a bottle of wine by myself every week if I really tried not to drink it, and watching my husband drink his mixers now makes me sad. The smell of the vodka makes me drool.

hahaha.  You rock, you just gave me my first chuckle of the day.

 

I easily get through a bottle of champers a week.  I have a glass every night in the hot bath...is nice.

I craved a nice cold beer while pregnant! To the point that I would drink non alcoholic beer. I loved it!
