Pregnant Teen Goes Out Drinking Five Nights A Week: I'll Stop When My Bump Starts Showing!

She knows it’s bad for her unborn baby, but five months pregnant Holly Piggott, 19, doesn’t want her friends to think she’s ‘boring’: ‘I’m young and I don’t feel ready to stop my life!’ Well then, maybe you should have used protection!

English born Holly Piggott drinks up to 32 units of alcohol every week — the recommended number for women who AREN’T pregnant is 14! (FYI: A glass of red wine is 3 units, a beer is 2 units and a shot of alcohol is 1 unit). And if she’s hungover, it doesn’t matter — she passes it off as morning sickness! “If I throw up I can say it’s the baby,” Holly, 19, tells Closer magazine. What is this girl insane?!

“I’m not an idiot, I know I might be doing my baby harm,” Holly, who goes clubbing every Saturday and Sunday and out to the pub three times a week. On weekdays she drinks an average of “only” one alcoholic soda drink, a glass of wine and maybe half a pint of beer, but on the weekends, Holly stays out until 7 a.m. downing liquor, beer, cider and Jagerbombs.

The Waltham Abbey, Essex, resident says: “I’m young and I don’t feel ready to stop my life. I’m trying to get the most out of it while I can. When I don’t fit into my size 12 dresses, I’ll stop.” Oh, so when you actually have to start wearing maternity clothes that’s when you’ll stop destroying your unborn baby’s life?

No, not necessarily. Holly says she will drink at home instead when her bump starts getting bigger. How awful! Has she ever heard of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?

What do you think of this, HollyMoms?
