    Default drinking alcohol during the TWW.........

    Im in the tww and will be 12dpo when i go to a special lunch next weekend and im not sure if its ok to have a wine or not? Prob too early to test to see if im utd before i go.Its only our first month ttc after going off the pill......I dont want to stop my life while ttc as it could take months or more (as im 32 my Dr said it will most likely take between 3 - 6 months)

    Not sure what to do??

    I do drink, just not to excess. It's taking a while so I need to have some sense of normalcy for me.

    I also drink during the tww if I feel like it.

    I say just do what feels right for you at the time.

    You're right, you can't put your life on hold 'just in case' so you may as well enjoy it

    Good luck

    I would drink and not feel an ounce of guilt.

    This.

    And not that this is in any way definitive, but of my two pregnancies the one that I miscarried was the one where I was positively angelic in the tww. The one that stuck I think I drank every single day of the tww.

    The babies organs don't start to develop until week three so iv read that alcohol and food isn't absorbed into the placenta in the first fortnight. Many people don't know they are pregnant at that point unless they are trying so I think having a drink before your period is due is fine just remember to stay hydrated so as to not disturb any possible implantation
