In brief: Best not to

Alcohol adversely affects every organ in the body, down to hear, skin and fingernails.
If you are trying to conceive, best to totally abstain. Besides, you probably will not know for at least a little while that you have conceived, and you would not want to expose your baby to a lethal chemical at that early stage, right?

In brief: Depends how much

Very light intake of wine 1-3 glasses of wine per week has not been associated with any harm while trying to get pregnant.
Drinking more than 5 glasses of wine a week can decrease your fertility rate by almost 50% in some studies. You want to be as healthy as you can possibly be while trying to get pregnant and while pregnant. Avoid excess!
