    Default Cutting out foods you're not supposed to eat during TWW???

    I drink too much tea... should i stop this in the TWW or is it ok because its so early on? Also, should you stop eating ham, soft cheeses etc during TWW?

    I got my BFP, unexpectedly, today!

    I was TTC but didn't think it happened (got a negative blood rest from the Gp a week ago). So I've inadvertently drank a glass of wine and had some ham as well..

    Not saying that u should do the same though!

    Either way, other than the 'forbidden' foods (soft cheese etc), I think everything is ok in moderation.

    Good luck xx

    I just made sure I cut back to just 1-2cups of coffee and I still ate whatever until I found out I was pregnant.

    i was told by Dr's to not change a thing until you get your BFP. I found that cutting things out added to the pressure i was putting on myself. As soon as i changed my thought process (to not ALL Being about getting pregnant) i got my bfp. I was so convinced i couldn't be pregnant that i had had a few drinks (although in saying that didn't really feel like it anyway).
    Each to their own though.
    Congratulations Misho! Very exciting for you starting the pregnancy journey! I'm now 24 weeks myself.

    I personally wouldnt cut things out whilst TTC.

    3 nights before I got my BFP I went to a seafood buffet and had very potent cocktails (friend at the bar made them) .. The night before my BFP I had 7 cups of coffee (night shifter.. i was exhausted!!!).

    I felt SO guilty the following day with my BFP thinking omg what have i done!!!

    No harm done.

    To me. If you cut out those foods etc whilst TTC / 2WW ... you might be cutting them out for years... (hopefully not)

    Just cut them down / out from your BFP

    You still need to "live"

    My clinic didn't even mention cutting out foods until I had a BFP. But, having been through several IVF cycles and an early miscarriage, I cut them out this cycle because I wanted to. TTC has already taken over my life so the effect on that was pretty much negligible.

    You could switch to decaf black tea, if it's the caffeine you're worried about. Rooibos tea also works well for me.

    I used to cut foods out and then with ivf post transfer I did too.

    I'm currently eating as much salami as I can before I go back to ivf lol

    I think leaving the risky foods out more than anything makes you feel like you are doing the right thing because if you ate a bad one during your tww and it was bfn you always question yourself and feel guilty even though 95% of the time if its bfn it would have been no matter what so cut it out and no guilt

    I didn't when we were TTC and I won't again. Nothing crosses the placenta in the first three (?) weeks anyway, that's why people who have been out drinking and stuff in the first few weeks (not knowing they are pregnant) usually have no issues. Definitely do not recommend doing that, but your diet is fine
