This is my first baby related post- it doesn’t seem real that this WILL (god willing) happen!
I was wondering if anyone tried to conceive on their honeymoon-did your doctor say it was okay to have a cocktail or not so much; what other things did you have to take care of before you started trying ? I’m off b.c. and have already started prenatal vitamins.
We are SO Ready and I just want to hear other people’s experiences 🙂

You don’t share a blood supply with a fetus until weeks into pregnancy, I think 5 weeks in (a week after your missed period). Some people here may disagree with me, but go ahead and drink!

Many people who are TTC do stop drinking alcohol just incase they do become pregnant. I don’t think it would be the end of the world if you had a few drinks during your honeymoon though! Many people don’t plan on getting pregnant, drink even a few weeks into their pregnancies, and have healthy, normal babies.

@asb983: I’m also in the drink till its pink club 🙂 A lot of people can conceive on their first cycle, however it can take longer, so I would mentally prepare yourself for that as well 🙂 We have been trying for 11 months & we have no known issues and I am very regular. Also, I would start prenatals asap, as it’s reccomended that you start taking them 3 months before actively trying.

@asb983: I’m pregnant with a honeymoon baby!
We got married on CD2, left for the honeymoon on CD11, had my last drink on CD21, and got my BFP on CD26!
And my baby is fine!

@asb983: I got wasted 3 days before I found out I was pregnant. He was a surprise so I had no idea. I wouldn’t not drink on my honeymoon if I was only ttc but some people abstain. I feel like you have to live your life…

We had a super awesome honeymoon and I drank it up (not much of a drinker here so didn’t go overboard). We got our surprise after the honeymoon was over LOL. We were not TTC.

My maid of honor didn’t know she was pregnant for like 3 months in.
Actually, the night before she found out she was pregnant, we went out and got so disgutingly drunk.
Not saying you should drink for the first 3 months.
But you’re not even pregnant yet.
b.t.w, her baby is perfect

@asb983: We started trying on our honeymoon. I started prenatals and folic acid in advance of this. It ultimately took us 10 months to conceive though. Good luck! Hopefully it happens faster for you than it did for us!

We didn’t start trying on our honeymoon but we accidentally conceived. I was at an inclusive resort so was definitely drinking that week. I told my doctor at my first appointment and she wasn’t at all. If you know your going to try I would start prenatal so but wouldn’t worry about having a drink because it could be awhile before you actually get pregnant.

We didnt try to concieve on our honeymoon but I guess we didnt try NOT to either and it happened and I had drinks up until the day I missed my AF and realized I needed to take a test. You will be fine continuing your regular schedule.
But I will say after going back to look at timing….my last AF came on the wedding day which meant I was ovulating during our honeymoon. But since I was tracking that I paid no attention.

Live life like your normally would (hard drugs excluded haha) until you find out you’re pregnant. I got my BFP mid-week on vacation in Glacier National Park, and I suspected I would conceive that cycle, but I still wanted to do my thing in case I wasn’t (and who knew how long it was going to take) so I was having 1-2 beers a day, eating deli meat sandwiches and beef jerky, and taking advil and aleve to combat the soreness from 2 mountain summits, 55 miles cycling, and 37+ miles on the trail that week. I’m fine and the kid seems fine so far. I certainly wasn’t binge drinking, and honestly, once the symptoms started setting in, I didn’t want anything but water and tea near my lips.

I just got back from my honeymoon 2 weeks ago and found out last week that i was pregnant. It wasn’t exactly planned but wasn’t unplanned either. I’ve seen friends and others on this site that it takes months of trying to conceive so I thought I’d be in the same boat since I am 36 years old. I never imagined that it would happen on the first try. I definitley had a lot to drink on our 3 week honeymoon and just enjoyed myself not really thinking i would get pregnant. I was worried once I found out that maybe my drnking could effect the baby, but I felt the implantation cramping a few days after my honeymoon, so that puts my mind at ease.

@asb983: We did not go away for a honeymoon, but I got preggo days after the wedding and was definitely drinking. My line of thinking is that you don’t even share a blood supply very early on, so no worries. Drink til it’s pink!
