It's just the two of us - am I being overcautious if I use grape juice instead of wine in my charoset?

Do whatever makes you feel comfortable, but I highly doubt the amount of wine in charoset is problematic for pregnancy.

Not at all. We generally make one with wine and one with grape juice for guests that can't have the wine. The taste isn't even that different.

Yes that's overcautious. A dip into charoses, that has a splash of wine....do you not take a sip of Kiddush?
A friend of mine was pregnant on pesach and didn't realize and had all the 4 cups of wine, freaked out and asked her doctor who said shes fine.

Yes you are being over cautious. A sip of wine, and even a small glass here and there towards the end is not a problem. The biggest problem is lots of alcohol during the first trimester.

But if it makes you more comfortable then hey why not. Your peace of mind is very important!

According to Halacha you are not supposed to eat the Charoses at the seder. You are supposed to dip and shake it off. You are supposed to use wine so of course you should use it as you won’t really be eating it anyway.
IyH you’ll be pregnant many more times and you’ll see that this type of thing will have zero effect on the pregnancy.

To me that would be considered overcautious, I drink 4 cups of wine even when pregnant. (Okay, throw your tomatoes now. But I have more than 7 kids and don't worry about it.)

Yeah lol even a cup or two of wine is fine. When I went into early labor the doctor told me the next time it happens to drink a glass of wine.

LOL. "According to halacha?"

Um, not everyone holds this way -- not by a longshot.

We just dip and shake off the charoset. the amount of wine that would end up on your lettuce is minuscule.
I made it with grape juice this year because I have no sweet red wine and it tastes delicious.

Growing up it was always made with grape juice. I never even thought to make it with wine. And now, even though we live in Israel, we buy a bottle of kedem grape juice as its the "taste" of charoset that I remember from my childhood Smile
