Glad you had fun! This was the thing I hated most about TTC. It’s like you are upset because you aren’t pregnant and yet everyone can’t stop talking about it. I was charting and found my temps were really off in the morning if I drank so for 7 months of charting I listened to this, ahhh hate nosey people!

Haha! This is our first month TTC after a m/c in July and there is a big family dinner on Saturday. AF is due today, and i’m pretty sure she’s coming (what a nasty [email protected]%&!) I’m planning on drinking defensively on Saturday. TTC makes me crazy!

Oh this drove me nuts. We were having a really hard time TTC, and anytime I didn’t drink, someone would make a comment. So then I’d have a drink just to prove them wrong. But it hurts more than anything b/c I’d RATHER have been pregnant! 

But the fact that I kept getting BFNs also contributed to my drunkeness! I tried to drink away the sorrows!

I felt your pain.  His family would offer me a glass of wine and wait with great anticipation to see if I would take it.  Even if I didn’t feel like drinking, I still took it just to keep their whispers and suspicion at bay.

Now I actually am pregnant.  We are waiting until 10-12 weeks to tell his family.  In the meantime I have a bottle of apple juice I break one when they are here.  I mix the apple juice with water to make it look like wine.  I also have root beers made by Abita.  Of course those root beer bottles look like beer bottles so I just throw a koozie on it and it’s believeable.

Haha, I love this thread.  I defensive drink all the time. 🙂 I’m not a big drinker and I’d rather not have a drink more often than not, but I always have at least one to allay suspicions.  DH is a great help too and will share his beer with me.  It’s fun when you practically wave the drink in the face of the really nosy ones. LOL

This thread cracks me up.

DH’s parents have ALL THE WINE, and they drink ALL THE WINE with every single meal.  I think I’ve been drunk with my in-laws more often than I’ve been drunk with DH alone.  I don’t know how I’m going to keep the secret when I eventually get pregnant.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  Haha I hear your pain! Once I really couldn’t drink as I was so horrendously hung over I was about to vomit. Result, everyone thought I was pregnant with morning sickness. If only!

HAHA! That sounds like something I’d do! I actually considered it at my own wedding– it was 85 and I was wearing a 22lb dress, so I stuck to lemonade and water and I swear a good 1/4 of my guests asked me if I was expecting!

That’s pretty funny!


I’m not going to have to worry about that, because me turning down an offer of a drink is not unusual- I never developed a taste for alchohol!  DH loves to let me have a sip of his just to see the face I make.

If I get whispers like that, I say really loudly, “I’m not pregnant, I’m just FAT.”

That shuts them up.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  Haha me too, but I HOPE I am very discreet. I’ll have to come up with some defensive strategies for when I’m pregnant,but right now there definitely are times when I purposely have a drink. My dad asked me if I was pregnant WHILE I was drinking wine. Thanks, dad, not only are you nosy, but you think I’d be drinking too?

Ugh, I have stopped drinking completely for a while unrelated to TTC (although we just started TTC this month), and I have gotten the side eye since I am normally a big wine drinker. Now that we ARE TTC it is even more awkward. I’ve found green tea mixed with water or seltzer looks like a glass of white wine, if you want something to hide the fact that you aren’t drinking. Now that I have seen how nosy people can be, I will be more cautious of doing the same thing to others!

Ha!  This is awesome.  I’ve drank before just to shut everyone up, too.
