    Hey there,
    I didn't drink anything, and I avoided any foods that were glaringly bad (like that left over BBQ chicken that had been left out for who knows how long) but wasn't as food fussy as I am since I got the BFP. I think its the responsible thing to do if you're actively trying, but I wouldn't go over the top.
    Good luck!

    I try not to be too over the top so u don't enjoy itself or so ppl start wondering, but I do avoid soft cheeses, reheated rice etc, but ill reheat normal food but make sure its hot etc...

    I'm lucky tho coz I don't drink at all so don't have to change that

    It's an agonizing two weeks tho!! Patience not being my strong point

    At first I did. Before we started TTC I had a binge weekend where I ate all the foods I wouldnt be able to eat when I got UTD (because I was naive and thought that wed get UTD the first go) So in my first couple of cycles I avoided it all..Now its like well its been almost 6 3/4 months and I dont cut anything out. I dont drink or smoke so I dont have to worry about that..We dont eat soft cheeses, caesar salad or deli meat that often either. However I still have a medium rare steak every now and then. I guess its really up to you what you do..every body has their own opinions so just do what you feel is the best for you. Good luck!

    Your fine in the TWW because even if you are pregnant, the placenta does not take over until the 8th week.

    Yep - this. No need to really change anything while TTC apart from be healthy of course! I'd enjoy everything while you can. I'd kill for a glass of red!! I had a few the day before I found out I was pregnant. There is no blood connection for a few weeks so what you eat or drink won't do any harm. Obviously listeria is never good for anyone but that is mainly just common sense. If you think food is off/dodgy I wouldn't eat it even if I wasn't pregnant.

    That's handy to know about not being harmful till 8 weeks. I don't drink and smoke but am prone to the odd ceaser salad and salami, cheese etc thanks, good question

    I was under the assumption (I work in the medical field and have a science degree, so my knowledge comes from there) that soft cheeses were only bad if they used non-pasteurised milk. As long as it's stated on the pack that it's pasteurised (and most made in Australia are) then it's safe. The risk of a listeria infection from Australian soft cheeses is very small..

    I love my brie and couldn't do without it! I just make sure it's pasteurised

    I have cut out alcohol in this TWW, as the last 2 months I was like "oh it's ok, I'll just have 1 glass" and then when AF came I felt like I'd jinxed myself. So no alcohol this TWW!

    *dreaming about quince paste and brie on crackers right now*
