To drink or not to drink...

Feb 8th, 2011, 21:21 PM   #1
 
dat is de question!!

So girlies am currently 10dpo (think that's right I have been a bit ignorant of my cycle this month), going out for an early birthday meal on Fri night but would really like to have a cheeky glass of vino. Will be 13dpo then, and given I have hardly any symptoms, thinking it's pretty unlikely I'm PG. Shall I go for it with the wine? Or should I do a test first on the Friday morn to double check? Didn't really want to test, as took about 4 tests last month and was so disappointing just to see that one lonely line, would rather just let the witch swoop in on her broomstick rather than pee on a stick (the plastic kind). Then again if by some sheer miracle there was a bean would having a glass of wine do any damage? What to do? x x x

Hi hunny
Hope you are well.
One midwife told me they only tell you to stop drinking just incase you get very drunk and fall over, so one or two glasses of vino shouldnt hurt.
I had a couple of glasses of champagne on my 21st when i was pregnant with Adam and he was fine x x

hey nurse! hope you are well hon and thanks for the advice!

Been missing you girlies, have been a bit awol this month as we've had a new lady start at work and I've been very busy training her which has meant no spare time to come on PF So basically I now have to actually do some work during the day rather than spending all day on here lol! On the plus side keeping busy has done me good, last month TTC was really starting to consume me to the point it was all I thought about. Then the witch arrived and it was a bit of a reality check so this month has been much more laid back. Not been symptom spotting either (not that there's been much to spot lol) particulary after last month when I was so sure my symptoms meant a bfp. How are you hon? Ready to start the OPKs again soon? x x x

Hey Nurse

I think some vino will be just fine my lovely, a lot of girls who don't chart anything or do the 2ww go & get smashed & have really healthy babies, my best friend is an example of that

Just think about it, when my mum had me and my brother (and I bet it is the same for your mums) she had a drink and a smoke and we both came out ok. Think it is everything in moderation when it comes to pregnancy and if it makes you happy then baby will be happy too!!

Last October I went away with friends and spent the whole time convinced I was pregnant, I told my Oh my symptoms and he was also sure I was too. Because of this I didn't touch one bit of alcohol.

I went to the doctors when I got home as I had done 2 tests, both BFN and I was still convinced I was pregnant. She then told me it was probably my pill etc.

I mentioned I hadn't touched any alcohol because I was sure I was PG, she laughed and said alcohol won't affect the baby until you are 10 weeks PG. Ever since then I've not been worried about it.

Not sure if this helps? xx

I got plastered at my BIL's birthday party about 2 days before I found out that I was pg with my son and he turned out absolutely fine (in fact his teachers are always saying how bright he is).

Personally I am living my life to the full and carrying on completely as normal (which means nights out with the girls, usually with plenty of drunken debauchery involved) until the day I get my BFP. I just think if it never happened for me again or if it takes a couple of years am I going to regret all the time I wasted worrying about ttc.

So I say go out, have wine and most importantly have LOTS of fun!

thanks so much girls! All your responses have made me feel really positive, can't wait to go out Friday now and have a good time I agree with you DB1978 I don't want to waste my life treading on eggshells all the time just incase I may be PG, had a little chat with OH last night and he agreed I shouldn't plan my life around it, and then if it does happen that will be the time when we do change our plans to accommodate the little one. OOh nurse sexy undies I did that last month and it worked a treat hope you enjoy lots of sexy time this month! x x x

I agree - I gave up drinking entirely for first 3 months TTC, but have started again (except right now as I think we've finally done it) - I drink far less now and think the three months off was really good for me. I'm also enjoying what I have far more (and saving money too) - but as you've said, you can't put your life on hold indefinitely...
