I've had many people tell me and ask me that having a glass of wine Once a week is fine...
I've done some googling but I also would love to hear what you ladies have to say.

Yes I have a glass of red wine occassionally and know others that have also drank red wine during pregnancy. I think in your first and second trimester  it's one glass if red wine every week and once you get closer to the third trimester it was one glass a day. I was a little doubtful about it at first but after doing a lot of research I found that a glass of red wine is fine, it also has benefits for you and the baby bc red wine clears up toxins in the body as well. And doesn't have a lot of alcohol in it that can affect the your baby. However I am not sure about beer or other liqiors. You should do some more research just to be on the safe side. But I think small doses are ok. Just like ibuprofen, some say don't take it at all but my midwife says that a small amount will not be able to harm the baby. If I am correct I think it was 1 gram a day?? But again just do your research.

Im 35 wks and I have drank red wine too. The research I read was no more than 10oz in a week.  I have had 4oz 4-5x in my entire pregnancy so far
