gingerbee1 : Woof. As someone who experienced a miscarriage, I’m really sensitive to this. The only reason a long car ride would be considered a miscarriage risk is if the individual had a high-risk pregnancy and was on bed rest or something. I don’t know if you’re leaving information out, your sister’s doctor is misinformed, or what is going on here but what you’ve said just isn’t true. More than that, it’s actually harmful because it could lead women to wrongly blame themselves for a miscarriage that was 100% unavoidable, as the vast majority of miscarriages are.

Not sure why everyone is saying antibiotics are code and so obviously means someone is pregnant. I’m on antibiotics right now and recently went to a get together that everyone was drinking at and didn’t drink and I’m definitely not pregnant or TTC at all. So yes it is possible for someone to not drink due to antibiotics
ETA: another idea is to bring your own like travel cup or yeti cup and pretend there’s alcohol in it. I often bring my own cups (actually with alcohol in it though) so I don’t have to play the “whose red solo is this” game.

buzzerbeater : I think because it’s just the most common excuse people use when pregnant and trying to get out of drinking, so it makes people suspicious!

tiffanybruiser : I cannot say I don’t agree with you. I totally agree that it’s so sensitive!! We never knew it could be harmful and found it really weird ourselves! but this was “one of the possible causes” that they were told. And my sister was in pain after this journey which then she suspected miscarriage afterwards. Maybe she did have a high-risk pregnancy that we didn’t know about (happened in the first trimester in the first weeks) Just sharing. I’m not giving 100% proven medical information here so please don’t get me wrong bees..
Truly sorry if I’ve offended some of you
