By the end of the night he got way too drunk as he was drinking for two so he would take a glass of beer "to the TAB or another room" and "leave it" there".
    I also walked around with an empty beer can filled with soda water.
    I actually went the entire night withtout alcohol whatsoever....it worked!
    My sister did question why dh was so drunk when he had just as many drinks as we did......i ended up telling her and she was amazed, she didnt notice a thing all night!

    Goodluck. One drink wont hurt if u happen to slip up as it's so early. But i wanted to see if i could go the whole night without even a sip of alcohol without anyone noticing and i did it! haha.
    LOL at your hubby looking like a lightweight compared to the ladies

    My friend did the soda water in a beer can thing, all was going well until the food came out and the smell started her MS off

    Health issue/medication/not feeling well which requires you to avoid alcohol?

    Love the wine glass pic!!

    I had to do something similar for the hen at her hens night!!

    We used coloured glasses so noone could see what was in hers.

    I was getting all her drinks and using juice and lemonade for her 'cocktails'. If anyone else tried i just told them to relax and let me.

    We had nonalcoholic bubbles stashed in a secret place.

    Otherwise she told ppl she was pacing herself as she was feeling a bit dehydrated and had a headache. She carried a glass with her and we did lots of sneaky swaps

    Good luck and congratulations!





    Maybe take some juice etc with you and a colo

    I was told when I had glandular fever to avoid drinking due to it inflaming the liver - maybe go with saying you've got that, it also gives you an excuse to turn in early and can last as long as a couple of months ie. When you're officially ready to announce your UTD

    Just thought of another one... You could say you've been feeling run down so the dr is sending you for blood tests on Monday, and you don't want any alcohol showing up/ skewing things.

    Ooh - and another one a friend did (successfully). Say you're so hungover from the night before that you can't face it. (You can even be persuaded to 'fake drink' one before declaring that it's making you feel sick). No suspicions of pregnancy with that one!

    ^^this!

    I told my 2 best friends and in social situations before I told everyone (we have a very big social group of mates) we would take turns making fire engines (minus the vodka for me) or when we were out I would get pink lemonade or plain orange juice.

    I would tell people I wasn't having shots coz I wanted to last the night or we just all did shots at the same time and my friends would drink it lol.

    Having at least one other person in on the secret makes it soooo much easier!

    Take aside either the birthday girl or the person making the drinks. Tell them in confidence that you think you might be pregnant, your not sure, you don't want to tell anyone, would rather not drink and can she help you.

    That's what i did on new year eve, the girl hosting the party went out and bought stubbie holders for the party and i drank sparkling apple juice all night and no one was any wiser.
