I’m pregnant and my doctor told me to stop drinking alcohol because it’s bad for the baby. However, my husband still drinks like he always did and it makes me jealous to see him having fun while I can’t.
Queenie, can I ask him to stop drinking until the baby comes?—Expectant mother on the wagon
Dear Expectant mother,
If you think you cannot have fun without drinking alcohol, you may have a problem that could get worse. Ask your husband to stop drinking until the baby comes. If he cannot do so, he may also have the same problem. Ask your obstetrician for advice, and you (both) might also want to consult Alcoholics Anonymous.
