Even more ridiculous situations tend to arise when a character is MistakenForPregnant and the other characters desperately try to stop her from drinking without revealing that they "know."

* In the Longmire book ''The Dark Horse'', Walt meets a young woman who's around 4 months pregnant as she goes to retrieve the bottle of whiskey that her very drunk boyfriend dropped when he decided to pick a fight with Walt (and promptly slipped and [[EpicFail knocked himself out]]). Seeing this reminds Walt of Melissa Little Bird, a young Cheyenne girl born with fetal alcohol syndrome who was involved in a case from a previous book, and tries to convince the woman to give him the bottle but she basically blows him off. Walt is left with a sinking feeling about this child's future.

* ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'':
** Amusingly [[AvertedTrope averted]] in the ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games, where one of the women (Karen pictured above) whom the player can marry will mistake morning sickness for a bad hangover. Not only that, but in ''VideoGame/{{Harvest Moon 64}}'' one of the requirements for marrying her is beating her in a {{drinking contest}}, requiring you to build up your tolerance with repeated alcohol purchases.

* Referenced in the ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'' series, by EricFlint. A doctor who (along with a modern small American town) had been forcibly sent into the 1600s explained that while drinking alcohol was a bad idea, the lack of sanitation made drinking potentially contaminated water a greater threat to the baby. She suggested well-watered wine and boiled water when possible.
