This is a tough one for me. Only TTC for two cycles but going at it with a vegance.
I have tried to find EVERY study about drinking and TTC. On one side is the, “if I am pregnant and drink (before the test is acutally done) will it hurt the baby?” I agree with everyone else that, you dont share a blood supply and probobaly wont hurt.
But does alcohol decrease your fertility. I hear people say “yes dont drink anything, yada yada” but I have never seen a study that shows or proves that. urgh…..
So I am trying to cut back. I entertain clients in my job a lot, so that is hard but every cycle with a BFN, I will cut back more. During the TWW, I wont drink (though last cycle I had wine once) but that is just a personal choice.
@phoebephoebo: I have also read a lot about caffeine. Most experts say cut it out, but studies say that less than 300mg doesnt hurt fertility. I found one that said less that 200mg so I have been keeping mine to around 100mg a day.
The fake sugar is hard for me though becuase I dont drink coffee and try to stay away from drinks with calories. On a bad day, I will have one Crystal Light with caffeine in it. And the rest of the week, I found these V8 refreshers with 1 serving of fruits and veg and 80mg caffeine.
p.s….. this is just me at a computer bored out of my mind surfing the net. I LOVE hearing what actual doctors have told all you Bees 🙂
