Do I need to act pregnant?

First post. Just trying to work out what I need to do to help TTC. I'm 31 never had any children. My concern is whether I need to stop my life in order to welcome getting pregnant. I have just had the copper coil removed and a period has already been and gone. But should I now stop drinking in the tww. Should I not go on rides (a trip to Thorpe Park is in the pipeline). Should I not plan a future holiday just in case? Any advice or input would be gratefully received.

Also sorry if this is in the wrong place.

Just carry on with life. It could take 2 years it could take two months.....nothing is guaranteed!

Take folic acid or a pre-conception vitamin that contains it. Otherwise crack on as normal, as Peachy says it might take a while. Hopefully not but you shouldn’t put your life on hold.

Agree. Take folic acid and get on with life

Thanks for the replies. That's kinda what I was thinking as you say nothing is guaranteed. Now I can feel a little less guilty smile

Yep to just take folic acid and carry on as normal.

I've stopped drinking during TWW and am taking folic acid. If I'm not pregnant (which I don't think I am) it's only 2 weeks without alcohol.

The month I got pregnant I did everything hot baths rubbish food I went sledding in the snow! It didn’t make any difference so just enjoy yourself x

I had a big glass of white wine the evening before I tested positive with my second pregnancy. It didn't seem to affect it, the result is currently upstairs asleep smile

In the tww with my dd, I went to a musical festival. I knew there was a chance that I may have conceived so I didn't drink heavily but I did still drink. Few days after the festival I got my bfp and she's now 13mo 😊

Take pre-conception vitamins and carry on as normal.

Good luck xx
