Its been a while since I went through this whole ttc thing so seem to have forgotten a lot of it!! DH and I have just decided to try for baby no2, DS is 22 months. We have talked it through, and decided that we would start trying around his 2nd birthday. We had a nigth out over the weekend and thought sod it, lets start trying early IYSWIM!!!

Now, it would not be a problem at all if I did fall pregnant although I know it is HIGHLY unlikely after 1 attempt - think I have just past ovulation days which cuts down the chances even further but......

I'm a bit worried that if I am, was drinking fairly heavily on the day we would have conceived, havent taken any folic acid etc etc, and have not really been very healthy up until now. W go on hols on Monday, so my other worry is whether I should drink or not, not a heavy drinker but would normally have a few glasses of wine with meal on hols.

When we were ttc with DS, remember finding the 2ww time v. awkward as didnt want to drink but also seemed a bit mad to put life on hold on the off chance that you were pregnant.

I would never forgive myself if I was pregnant and the baby had problems because I had not prepared myself properly.

So, should I just continue as usual on the assumption that I most likely not pregnant, or assume that I am and start taking folic acid, cut out drinking etc, or have even considered third option of morning after pill and going back to original plan of ttc when DS is aged 2.

If you understand the above well done,!! Your advice is much appreciated ladies,

I would take the folic acid but drink as normal - depends what your normal is, mind you. Loads of people don't know they're pregnant and carry on drinking for long after the 2ww, and loads of people conceive in a drunken haze without having babies affected in the least.
