I’m guessing this is a touchy subject, but just throwing it out there – how many of you did/do/will drink while TTC?
If you do drink, do you only drink pre-O or do you “drink till it’s pink”?
If you don’t, what made you decide not to? Doctor’s orders? Your acupuncturist? Personal beliefs?
I’m trying to cut back, but honestly, I like my beer. The first couple months of TTC I cut WAY back, but then when we started realizing this would take awhile, I honestly thought Screw it, this could take years, plus nearly a year of pregnancy, plus at least a year of breastfeeding, I’m drinking while I can.
Selfish? Maybe. But it seems to work for me.
The exception would be last night (CD1) where I was emotional and sad about yet another BFN and confided in my sis-n-law’s newly ex-boyfriend (who is a long time friend of mine) and he was SO comforting and wonderful about it all and we definitely drank too much tequila to drown our sorrows (his relationship ending and my cycle ending). Drinking while sad about a fresh BFN is not something I’d recommend!
