In an effort to make your wife's (and your own) transition into pregnancy, considered an alcohol free Beer substitute such as Root Beer or Ginger Beer. Stay away from the Mug (my favorite), A&W, Barq's, etc, because they contain some serious sugar in the form of High Fructose Corn Syrup (which I'll get into at a later time).
One thing that I forgot to mention about the terrible tasting Zero Root Beer (with zero flavor) by Virgil's, was that it is actually caffeinated! The standard Virgil's Root Beer does not contain caffeine. There are so many micro brewed Root Beers out there, and I can't wait to try as many as possible. Check out this huge list of root beers on RootBeer.net and a few fun root beer buys:
