Along with the aches, pains, and increasing size, pregnancy has a couple other drawbacks. One of those being the need to stop all of your alcohol intake!
Now, pregnancy isn’t all that bad since you’re growing your future bestie inside of you, but this was one of the hardest pregnancy changes for me to handle, especially around the holidays.
It can be tough during the holiday season as you may miss the cocktails at Christmas Eve dinner or toasting to accomplishments at your company’s holiday party. But have no fear! There are still ways to get you in the holiday spirit and still feeling festive during Christmas.
With the trend in non-alcoholic beverages continuing to rise, a festive and merry non-alcoholic drink is just the thing.
