You’re totally fine to have a drink or two IMO. I personally wouldn’t go out and get smashed, but even if you did conceive while on vacation, I don’t think you share a blood supply for a few weeks still.

Hell, no! Drink til it’s pink! (The pregnancy test, that is.) You can definitely have a glass or two of wine with dinner every day and be perfectly fine. Enjoy!

You can drink as much as you want, you’re not pregnant right?  Even if you ovulate on saturday and get pregnant, it takes 7-12 days for it to implant (average 9 days I think).  I’m a believer in drinking (or doing whatever else) until you get a positive pregnancy test.  Why not drink wine in italy or ireland when you might not even be pregnant?

I guess I would ask you why you wouldn’t want to drink?

You are any potential embryo won’t be sharing a blood barrier until much closer to your missed period.

Anecdotal evidence would support that drinking increases the likelyhood of pregnancy. 

Drinking equals more nookie!

I am also in the “drink till it’s pink” camp. When I get pregnant the first time, I was drinking before (and actually probably had a few before I found out I was pregnant), so it definitely didn’t hinder my chances.

andielovesj:  haha I agree, I think alcohol = more pregnancies lol.  I drank before I was pregnant, before/during implantation, and actually after (as I did not realize I was pregnant until 8 weeks along).  I have a healthy 6 mo old!

The United States is one of the few cultures where women don’t drink while pregnant, so I think you’re fine to drink til it’s pink 😉  If you aren’t binging, it shouldn’t be a problem (I know I drank while TTC and hit it on the first time both times haha). 

Besides, you have to try a Guiness in Ireland and have Italian wine.  Heck, I’m pregnant and I’ll probably share DH’s wine periodically while we’re in Italy…not worth passing that up!

“Starting to TTC” on the 5th means nothing.  It’s still just having sex until your are actually fertile.  If you ovulate on the 18th, a potentially fertilized egg wouldn’t even implant until you are back from vacation 7 days after that.  And doesn’t share your blood until even later.  You’ll be fine to drink
