Low Alcohol Tolerance

Early pregnancy symptom

Some women report that they have a much lower tolerance for alcohol very early in pregnancy - before they know they are pregnant or before they can even reliably test. (ie: one drink will make them feel tipsy or drunk) For some this is a really convincing sign.
