Basically I don’t usually drink, but it’s my friends 30th birthday and we’re going for lunch and drinks, I’m about 2/3 dpo. What are people’s opinions on alcohol! I’m torn as to what to do, if I don’t drink then my friends will ask why and I don’t want to tell them we’re trying, but I feel guilty at the thought of having a drink even though I’m not pregnant yet! Can someone please tell me if I’m being ridiculous 😂

I didn't know I was pregnant. Had 4 or 5 drinks for my birthday, got a positive result the next day.
I've stopped all alcohol since, but drinking a couple of drinks now and then since conception seems to have had no effect.
Not a heavy drinker prior to pregnancy though.

I was on holiday in my tww and drank like a fish including a whole bottle of wine the night before I tested. I’m now 12 weeks and no problems so far

I operate on the All Bets Are Off Until the Second Line. You could be trying one month or 5 years and it's a long time to live in a 'maybe'.
