Eating & Drinking during 2ww


So during the 2ww the best thing to do is obviously act as if you are pregnant and not drink or eat the wrong things. However how religiously do people stick to this? I have a wine tasting event to celebrate a family members 60th in my 2 ww - am I not meant to do this? What if (and its highly likely) I am not pregnant? Do we give up on our normal lives for 2 weeks every month? I don't binge drink but I do enjoy a g&t or a glass of wine a few evenings a week.

Help!!

Hi Hun, I personally continue as normal until I get a BFP or if my AF was late. I didn't realise you were supposed to not drink etc. for the 2ww? How much difference would it make if the baby hasn't developed as such? Genuine question - maybe I need to do some reading!!

I didn't realise either but that's what people generally seem to be saying on here. I kind of understand as the baby would start developing but i also think it may be a bit ott? I just don't know!

Personally I rarely drink anyway so avoid it anyway during the 2WW and I avoid any meds except paracetamol if absolutely necessary. Food wise, I would eat more healthily once I had BFP but don't really change what I eat during 2WW.

I wouldn't think this wine tasting thing would be a problem - it's not like you're planning on getting and anyway .. don't they encourage you to spit it out at a wine tasting event!

I was thinking more major organ development like brain etc. which I think is a few weeks in? Personally, I would go to the wine tasting session! It's so hard to know what to do half the time lol

Aren't most pregnancies unplanned? - and they don't change their behaviour until after they find out, so if it did do a lot of damage wouldn't most of the population be 'damaged'? Lol I would go along, but take it easy. I've started to use the rule I learnt while breastfeeding, 'If you can still drive you can breastfeed'. So a couple of units a day can't do much to the body IMO!

I eat the same and if I want something unhealthy, I go for it. I don't drink (although I admit to partaking of a glass or two over Christmas this year). I think it's best to just try and be as healthy as you can be.

I personally believe that we can't put our lives on hold for two weeks every month, just on the off chance that we may be pregnant obviously it's different when you get your bfp, I don't really drink alcohol though as it makes me very ill even after a glass of wine I will be sick!

I think it's down to personal choice tbh x
