I'm interested in studying all things wine related but what stops me is the desire for a second child sooner than later. How can I study wine while pregnant? Odd question but could use some help in understanding.

I've been interested in wine for a short while but just recently I've decided that instead of just imagining what it would be like to know, I'd like to get up and get immersed in everything wine related. My future goal is to maybe be a wine master.
Currently, I'm on more a home study kind of level. I have the 2006 edition of the Windows On The World course, know of basic tastings at the grocery store or World Market. I've joined a few meetups so I can get to real tastings but for the most part, I'm reading and have yet to get out there. There is the ISG diploma program locally that I'm considering. It starts in October and I'm thoroughly interested even if it doesn't happen for me till next year. The thing is I want a second child and while I know that wine is not all about drinking, I imagine I would have to do at least some beyond tasting and spitting it out. Right?
Do I put off studying more in depth till after pregnancy? Just keep with my book? If so, can you give me more ideas on what to do and how to study? I can't see me getting very far any time soon if I do end up pregnant and have to wait till I wean to actually drink any wine. I also can't see myself putting off having another child for a couple years as studying wine can, I'm sure, take up the rest of my life. Do I have the wrong idea here on what it means to study wine? Advice? I'll be the first to admit that I know next to nothing when it comes to this industry, I'm super interested, but the thought of mixing wine and pregnancy (if I'm blessed enough to end up pregnant) makes me pause and I have no idea how to handle that here when I want both.
