* 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.

** In the season 2 finale, Barney sees Robin drinking water at a wedding reception, and jumps to the conclusion that she must be pregnant. HijinksEnsue. It turns out she's not pregnant, and just happened to be drinking water. Possibly justified in that Ted had told him that something big had happened between him and Robin (part of the story of which involved them having unprotected sex).

* Averted in ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'', after Anastasia learns that she's pregnant. Christian heavily frowns at a glass of champagne she's holding at a welcome party, but Grace, her mother-in-law and a doctor, tells Anastasia that 'a little sip' is fine now and then.

(Plus if you do the math she's pregnant for most of the book, and she drinks a ''lot'' before she finds out.)

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] when it comes to Nicotine and tobacco. While it can harm the baby, the stress from suddenly going cold turkey from nicotine can have a much greater effect on the baby. However talk to a obstetrician before you try this. [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle Don't blindly follow medical advice from the internet.]]
