Question, not pregnancy related.

I was wondering if any of you ladies had trouble drinking after pregnancy? Before I got pregnant I used to have a drink every now and then and everything was fine. I'm 2 weeks postpartum and tried having 1 beer but after a few sips of it I felt like I was going to have a panic attack. Has this ever happened to anyone else??

No I haven't  but I didn't have my first drink until about 2 months after birth cause I was breast feeding. I also had a glass of wine not beer. Your body just may need to adjust and 2 weeks after birth you still have a ton of hormones raging through.

Thanks, that makes sense. :)

Your body is still adjusting to a drastic experience, so it may not be able the added strain of processing the alcohol. I would call your dr Monday and ask if it ia something considered normal or something to worry about. I hope you feel better!
