Hi ladies, another question... I've pretty much stopped drinking since trying for a baby but its a bit difficult when socialising and you dont want ppl to know you're trying. Not really sure how to get round it without ppl asking though and I know once I do get pregnant you're not supposed to say anything too early.

What's the question?

Fair play to you, I would have gone mad without my evening G&T or glass of wine when I was ttc-ing.

Just tell them you've given up drinking for health reasons. Plenty of people don't drink, it's not that unusual.

I stopped drinking a couple of years ago because i found it a pointless waste of money, noone's really questioned me. Just tell them you've decided to lay off it a while

I just drink pre tww... then have an inch in my glass during tww at social occasions and pretend to sip. I find people ask questions if I say no to alcohol but don't notice if I don't drink any but have a glass! I wouldn't worry too much though, I still had the odd half a glass of alcohol when pregnant eg champagne at new year. As long as you aren't having a glass of wine every night! And you may not be pregnant anyway..

But as said above not that unusual these days to give up: money, health, weight, detox, lent whatever...

Thanks for the replies guys x I don't think it would hurt every now and then but I do feel better for not drinking anyway x
