The best way to deal with teasers is to play an attacking defence ;-)
When they say ohh why aren't you drinking are you pregnant or something, just seriously reply "yes I am! Thanks for noticing!" They will all be stunned n whatnot... "Reaaaaaally???!" Just be like "haha no of course not". That way you catch them off guard and you make it sound so unrealistic because you ARE agreeing. I know that comes across weird when I write it, but it totally works. I have one specific cousin in law he always says it's ur time, are u utd yet, why aren't u drinking etc. now I just totally mess with him. "Oh yeah I'm 12 weeks tomorrow. I was gonna announce it tomorrow thanks for ruining the surprise. We have decided if it's a boy we are naming him *insert cousins name here*." Etc etc. confuses them enough for u to make your "don't be silly" remark and bail haha.

Lexim Im so sorry for your loss, We lost our first little one 7 weeks ago and it still hurts every day.
For the drinking stuff it is hard and I have used every single excuse mentioned and Ive never been a big drinker but at EVERY event since we got married Ive been asked why Im not drinking, Ive even had friends try and trick me into drinking to see if I am pregnant!! 2 years later they're all still asking.... Maybe my friends just arent that smart!!
DH and I have our 2nd wedding anniversary this Sunday and we're off too Phuket!! I O on our actual anniversary so hoping for a little miracle bub this cycle, if not it'll be a distraction til we can start our FET in Jan

Wish we have the same wedding date aww. Phuket what a treat!!
Lexim sorry for your lost bub. Here's fo 2014. The year of amazing bfps and pregnancies hey girls
I bought some opks of eBay last night. Couldn't wait mrst. But I will give my bff them if I have too many as she was asking me about them on Sunday. She went and had a bt to see if she's immune to rubella. If not she's having to wait three months. So we very well could be TTC at the same time :thumbup:
Its hard to hide not drinking imo. I got hounded at a wedding I went to in April because I wasn't due to medication. No one believed me tho. theu were convinced I was utd. I had to keep saying, well in 9 months I wont have a baby so you're all wrong. But effing heck. Talk about rude. What if I was, none of their business to interrogate me.

When we told our friends recently that we were pregnant but lost it, they all felt so awful about asking about being pregnant, I do have a feeling they'll all back off from now on. Sad thats what it took though.

I think I might ditch the opk idea until we've been trying for a while.
I don't want to get upset and too obsessed with trying as this will be our last baby when and if I fall pg...and I kind of want it to be a real surprise when we get our bfp- and that way we get to just dtd with a bit of excitement and spontaneity not just oh I'm ovulating let's have sex lol
Although I'm desperate to become pregnant it's not going to happen if I'm stressing! And I think all those tests make me cray cray. Lol!
I don't even know if I've got my cycle back. I was spotting (just enough to put a pad on) for a week after returning from my holiday and I haven't had a proper bleed since. I wonder if that's it?

Not using opks is good for you if that's how your mind works. For me, I need to know all the data so I can control it haha. That's just my type tho lol.

If I don't know exactly when I O'ed then I don't know when to stop bding lol. And I'm exhausted enough by the end, so then I'd be stressing if I stopped to early blah blah haha easier to just test XD

Good on you for trying a new approach though! :-)
Mixing it up is always good.
