    Default TTC, ovulation and christmas party! Help!

    So I have just ovulated (well 90% sure) i have a blood test to be done next wednesday to confirm. Problem is I have my work Christmas party this Saturday, I don't want to drink obviously incase we were lucky to catch an egg but I don't want my work mates to be think "hmm why isn't she drinking" hubby and I are staying where the Christmas party is being held so I can't make an excuse that I'm driving.. Anyone got any tips/excuses I could use?

    I'm in that boat at the moment too. I used to always be up for a drink, and now everyone looks at me funny when I refuse. I even had someone (who I didn't even know) tell me that of course I must be pregnant (which was a bit hurtful, because I'm not ).
    You could say you're just getting over a cold or something and you don't want to get sick again. I think that's what I'll tell the in-laws when I see them at Christmas time.

    Just drink something that could be mistaken for alcohol (ie lemonade with a lime wedge in it could be vodka) and make sure you always get your own drink..no one would be any the wiser.

    Or you could say you're on antibiotics or something and you are not allowed any alcohol.

    Yeah I've got the same issue! Christmas work party this weekend and can't use driving as an excuse! I like the idea of getting a drink that could be mistaken for alcohol.... But I bet someone will go and buy a round a actually get you what you claim your drink is but secretly isn't :s

    I think summastarlet has got it, just pretend you're drinking! At those events people are too busy drinking as much free booze as they can't, they won't care to ask! HeHe!

    This doesn't help for your work Christmas party - but I found alcohol removed sparkling wine at Dan Murphy's which I drank last weekend at a party at home with all the family. Everyone assumed I was drinking normal sparkling. It is 0.5% alcohol I think from memory, so it still has a tiny bit of alcohol in it. Am also in the 2WW
