Drink ’til it’s pink. 

You’re not currently pregnant. You might not be at all this cycle (though FX you are!). You don’t share a blood supply with a zygote–it happens a few weeks later.

KB87 :  I would. I’m firmly in the drink until its pink category. Don’t get hammered, but having a few drinks won’t do any harm at that point.

Enjoy Hawaii!

I would.  Probably not more than 2-3 drinks in one day, but all the research seems to show that anythig short of heavy binge-drinking is fine for a newly developing zygote.

I personally wouldn’t drink we are planning on trying to get pregnant this fall and we are going away this summer for two weeks and I’m not planning on drinking

KB87 :  Enjoy your vacation! Like PP said you aren’t pregnant yet and if this is your cycle you don’t share a blood supply yet anyways. 

mrandmrsnunes :  what’s the rationale for not drinking months in advance of TTC? You do you, but if you aren’t even trying yet….

KB87 :  It’s all good! I wouldn’t get shitfaced but enjoy yourself!

FX you get a BFP when you return home! It’s a good way to pass the TWW … relaxing on the beach!

LilliV :  just trying to stay healthy, I have also given up caffeine. I have started folic acid. Hopefully by the time we are trying to get pregnant my body will be as healthy as can be

Soooo I definitely drank until it was pink. That being said, I did and do definitely feel shitty about it now because we were all inclusive and definitely indulging and I got my BFP on that trip….


My advice is I don’t think there is any real problem with it but just make sure you won’t regret your choices like I did…

I am firmly in the drink til its pink camp. I wouldn’t go out getting completely wasted, but having a few drinks wouldn’t bother me in the slightest – even if it was everyday (you’re on vacation, after all).

Also drink til its pink team! Have a few but dont get hammered! I did get shitfaced 4-5 times before i got my BPF but my pregnancy wasnt planned (otherwise wouldnt have drunk that much of course!). I was also travelling overseas during the time. 


Enjoy Hawaii and fingers crossed for a BFP

KB87 :  tell me more about this caffeine to increase estrogen! I had borderline low estrogen & progesterone on my labs, BMI 18.5 running 40 miles/ week. I cut the running way down, got my BMI to 20 but it’s killing me… lol I feel huge
