We changed our holiday to go up north camping for a week instead and have decided to go anyway despite the clinic not being happy with it! We really need a holiday after all this and there is a hospital where we are going and we are both medical so figure it will be fine. They are just rechecking bloods next week anyway...

    Hope everyone is travelling well, it certainly sounds exciting for one day
    My heart goes out to you excited1 - you are very brave. Time away sounds perfect to look after yourself and be together.

    @ScubaGal that's great news. I'm pleased for you. @canuck28, I'm with @BabyOB, I quit all alcohol and caffeine while I was doing IVF and haven't restarted at all. I don't feel like caffeine whatsoever (I was a caffeine addict before starting IVF) and I haven't felt like alcohol, although all advice I've read is that it's better to abstain altogether as doctors can't be sure of what a 'safe amount is'. Everyone is different though.

    @canuck28 I really recommend a book called Expecting Better by Emily Oster. It's really informative, great to read and it presents the core data on a whole lot of pregnancy issues, decisions and worries so that you can decide for yourself, including data on the safety of alcohol consumption.

    It's available as an e-book as well.

    @canuck28 I virtually stopped drinking 2-3 years ago when we first started contemplating IVF and really haven't missed it. I was never much of a drinker anyway. I'm a bridesmaid on Saturday and apparently the celebrant likes the bridal party to do a celebratory shot right after the ceremony, still trying to work out how I'm going to avoid that one! Caffeine is more my vice - I'm a big tea drinker and I loooove chocolate, but I've moved to decaf coffee to try and reduce caffeine.

    Anybody else's sense of smell gone off the chart lately??! Everything seems to be making me feel blah. Pine O'Cleen for the loo, carpet deodoriser I usually like the smell of, my DH's deodorant and especially the smell of hot meat. 3 people walked by my desk today with hot meals that incl meat of some sort and I swear I thought I was going to vomit at my desk! blerk!

    I think the alcohol thing is defo personal choice. I honestly don't believe that one standard drink every week or two will hurt bub, but that's just my opinion.

    I tend to take the "risk vs reward" angle with all things in this pregnancy. There are many that would say I shouldn't be taking the nausea medication that I am because it could harm bub, but I know if I don't the outcome would be much worse ie dehydration malnutrition etc.

    As for smells. Ahhh yep. My sensitivity peaked about 7-13 weeks. Has eased slightly on some things but my own BO still grosses me out lol.

    My Ob is fairly liberal, as was my FS. They both say the odd glass of wine won't hurt and that a coffee a day is fine. My Ob even said sushi is ok if I trust the source!

    Smells... DH calls it my super power at the moment... Can't stand going by a butcher...my feet stink, my dogs stink, my cat stinks, coffee stinks good thing I have never drank the stuff... But I can handle that...

    I also like the fact that my nails are growing better and stronger... And my hair has got some body and wave to it...

    Wish the evening sickness would disappear though... And the dreaming... I am a fairly lucid dreamer to being with... But at the moment I'm picking up dreams and moving them forward from my childhood... Not sure what that means or how it's even possible but it's weird... And it makes me wake up tired like I haven't slept at all...

    Thanks for the replies ladies RE alcohol in pregnancy. I think it is a personal choice. Obviously abstinence is the safest choice but I think an occasional, moderate drink will not cause any harm to bub. As for caffeine, I also had no coffee during first trimester but due to my nausea, the smell made me puke! Now in 2nd trimester I'm feeling better and have begun drinking coffee again, about one a day.

    And yes my sense of smell has gone crazy too. Sometimes I kick DH out of bed if I think he smells funny.
