I have a big weekend this weekend with friends birthdays and if I don't drink it will look crazy suspicious so I will just be using DS as an excuse to not drink too much ( have to be up to watch him the next day) and just drinking really light wine mostly
I was so tired last night, It got to 8pm and I couldn't do it anymore, I put DS in bed with me because he was fighting sleep and it's more comfortable for me to sleep with both of us in my bed rather than his. I didn't stir again until sometime in the night where he must have been dreaming of his best friend because he was calling her name, then at 4:30 he woke me up because he wanted his shirt off and then at 6am when my alarm went off. I should have stayed in bed though, I am still insanely tired, but I did switch to decaf and am on holidays so it may just be that. Watch me at dinner tonight I'll be the one yawning and chewing my arm off because dinner isn't until 7:30 which means meals won't be out until maybe 8/8:30, I have a toddler people, we eat by 6:30pm at the latest
Here is my theory on the drinking. I will have one, maybe two if they are several hours apart. If you think about it, until implantation how could the alcohol get to an embryo anyway? That's what, 7-10 DPO? If I stronhgly suspected I was pregnant I would abstain. You can always use medication as an excuse. There is a bladder infection antibiotic that makes you sick if you drink while taking it. When I was pregnant with DD I just lied and said I was on that to get out of drinking at a party without raising suspicions.
I wouldn't stress about drinking a little if you are still in the 2WW. I did the whole alcohol abstinence thing for several months when I was TTC the first time around. Got old really fast especially when those months stretch on and on for over a year and everyone around you gets to enjoy that glass of wine, etc. This time around I didn't sweat about it too much while TTC #2 b/c we struggled to get pregnant before and I knew I would stop drinking all together when I got a positive HPT. A friend took me to a wine tasting for my birthday and I got a positive HPT five days later. I'm not concerned because how many people continue drinking a few weeks longer before realizing they are pregnant and everything turns out fine. When you TTC for a long time, you learn that you can't put your life on hold just because this cycle might be the one. Of course if you think it would bother you to know you drank during that cycle then I guess avoid it. Anyway that's just my two cents on the situation knowing a lot of people will be going to summer parties and weddings around here.
Thought I would drop in. I haven't been charting or even trying, but my breasts hurt bad like they do when I'm pregnant. I've also been "crampy" and gaseous (oh my favorite) along with gaining weight but not eating as much as I normally due.
Period is due tomorrow, but I'm the type that doesn't show early. Won't stop me from POS sometime this weekend.
If I am, I will be in shock as will my husband most likely ..

I feel like I'm out. I don't think I'm really 8 DPO yet but I have a low and soft cervix, PMSing, emotional, irritable and negative tests....annoying! Definitely will be drinking a glass of wine tonight
I know, I know...but if the shoe fits!
Did anyone else jump on the super exclusive Fertility friend discount and get it for a year for $25?? I did.
I heard about the discount! I kind of wish I'd gotten it while it was available. I just have the free one for now!
I'm going back and forth between wondering if I'm out and wondering if I'm pregnant. I hate that. One minute I'm sure I'm not and the next I'm wondering if it's possible. The back and forth wears me out. The good thing is we're a crazy kind of busy and I keep forgetting what day it is or how many DPO I am so if we can keep that up maybe I'll just forget about it until I have my answer. Lol. I've had a lot of cramping the last few days. I'm not sure what to think about it since I haven't had cramping since the LAP, but I also haven't had a full cycle yet so I don't know what's normal for me and what's not. I O'd right after the surgery (I think) and I don't remember having cramps like this last month but who knows. I also knew I wasn't pregnant last month so I didn't pay attention to it in the same way. Since this is our second time TTC, I just hope I'm not disappointed to the point of sobbing and having a meltdown out of disappointment each month I'm not. I really want to go about it differently this time.
