    I drank during the tww but that was because I didn’t know I was pregnant. I am sure I’m not the only person so I don’t think it matters that much.

    I dont drink so i am biased but if you want a child i dont think sacrifing drinking alcohol is so hard. You can still go out with your partner and fun, drink mocktails or juice

    I am in the “drink til it’s pink” school of thought.

    But….. I guess I would ask what kind of drinking?

    I mean are you going to binge drink until you vomit?  slam jaeger shots?  Play beer pong?

    or are you going to have 2 glasses of wine or a couple martini’s over a two or three hour period somewhere without a lot of smoke?  I think that’s fine.  Just use your judgement.  or talk to your doctor.

    I’m in the “drink ’til it’s pink” club as well so I wouldn’t have any problem having a few drinks during my TWW.

    Plus – it is my understanding that you aren’t sharing anything with the baby that early in the pregnancy anyways.

    i drank up until i got the positive pregnancy test, as did my friend who now has a healthy 10 month old. you can’t put your life on hold, at least in my opinion.

    I had 2 glasses of sangria during the TWW a few weeks ago. Frankly it was the best sangria I ever tasted! I actually think we made the baby that very afternoon (maybe 3 hours before we went out?) so it probably didn’t matter anyway. I’m pretty sure I had a glass of wine a week later also. I think you shouldn’t put your life on hold and you should have fun with your Darling Husband.

    we were not trying to concieve and i was 8 weeks pregnant before I found out that I was….. and I had been drinking that whole time.  Of course I stopped when I found out, but my now 16 month old is healthy as can be! 🙂

    Have a drink, it may be your last for 9+ months.  However, I wouldn’t get drunk.  Just have a few until you actually see the BFP.

    We were on our honeymoon at an all inclusive resort the week before I found out that I was pregnant.  Needless to say, I had a lot of alcohol.  I asked my doctor at my first appointment, and she said that I had nothing to worry about.

    They say a small glass of red wine is healthy for a woman to drink while pregnant, which you don’t even know if you are or not. I’m in the drink til’ it’s pink club, though.

    I can see where your Darling Husband is coming from. Darling Husband and I used to love trying new beers or having a couple drinks while out at dinner. Last year, he randomly decided to stop drinking and it’s been a difficult adjustment for me! I feel like he took away this really fun thing that we enjoyed – it’s no fun drinking alone. 

    Anyway, I continued to drink (alone! lol) during the TWW. I had a cocktail and several beers the weekend before I got my BFP. So have a drink with your DH! I wouldn’t go and get drunk but a few drinks shouldn’t hurt anything.

    I’m in “drink till it’s pink” club.  When we first started TTC, I was pretty diligent about not drinking during the TWW, but now that we’re on Month 16/Cycle 17 and it’s taking waaaaaaay longer than we imagined, I’ve relaxed on a few points.  I wouldn’t advise getting wasted, but a few drinks in the TWW won’t hurt.

    I love nothing more than unwinding from a busy or stressful day by spending part of  the evening on the couch with a glass of wine and my DH!
