Drinking wine whilst pregnant

I am currently 19 weeks preggies, many people have told me that one can drink a glass of wine whilst having dinner. Is this true, will this harm the baby?

It best not to have any alcohol. While it is known that lots of alcohol can affect the baby, it is not known how much is safe.

Best wishes
