    Hi girls!

    ..so have u all told ur friends about ttc? I haven't and am already finding it hard to make excuses when ppl are arranging for big nights out when I know I'll be in my tww & don't want to drink!

    I haven't told anyone yet. I usually go out and have like 1 drink. Doc told me no big deal. My personal opinion, I know others are deathly against it.

    I had a friend whose dad plays baseball on a beer league, and made pop can sleeves for his whole team to put over their beer so they wouldn't get in trouble. When she was trying to get pregnant she asked her dad to make her one, but other way around, so she could slip the cover over a can of pop and people would think it was beer. It did the job lol.

    Lack of money is always a good excuse, could you say you're saving for something?

    I don't go out, so it's not a problem for me! The joys of being in a new place with only 3 friends and a boyfriend, and it's only the boyfriend I ever see so it's all good :wacko:

    I don't go out either anymore as my friends I would normally go out for meal and drinks with are pregnant:wacko: The other group of friends I used to go clubbing with have all had major fallings out but when we first started TTC I carried on my every weekend nights out but just bought coke and told them it was vodka :haha: as long as you dont buy in rounds this works!!

    1 or 2 drinks won't hurt during the TWW then go on to soft drinks, no point giving up a fun night out. You never know when your next one will be ;).

    Until the time you can find out you're pregnant with a HPT, 1-2 drinks is ok.
    People who aren't TTC get pregnant and don't realize until they're 1 week or more late for AF. They live their regular life in their TWW without knowing. All their children are healthy.
    I'd suggest if you've just started TTC, don't share it with a lot of people, if it takes a long time it gets frustrating to be asked 'any luck yet?' every month.

    We havent told anyone as we dont want anyone to knnow just yet. Prob wont tell anyone until after we get pregnant and have had the 12 week scan.
    Ther are lots of things you could do/say - offer to drive instead of drinking, like someone else said drink coke or lemonade and say its something else but buy your own drinks and as someone said a couple of drinks wont do any harm - when i was pregnant with my eldest i had gone on holiday with a big group of us and we were all out drinking - me included - and i didnt even suspect i was pregnant at the time, it wasnt until we came home and i did a test did i find out. My son is a healthy little boy now - didnt drink at all after the positive test.

    I have found that if you have alcohol (or say you have!) for the first drink then people don't tend to notice if you make it last ages or if you only have soft drinks for the rest of the night!! My experience anyway. my close friends know but not many other people.
