I'm trying to conceive. We're trying naturally this cycle (as there's a tiny chance it might work) and right now I'm between ovulation and period. (I don't want to use the phrase two week wait as it suggests a medicated cycle and I don't want you to think that I would be drinking then.)
I think there are two possible reasons why I'm carrying on regardless. First I don't believe this month is the month. We tried for two years with no results, and so I don't connect sex with the possibility of pregnancy anymore. Second, I guess I'm hoping that if I ignore it, it might happen!
For those of you who are horrified at the thought of alcohol and pregnancy, remember that not all countries take such a hard line when it comes to drinking a little during pregnancy. The British medical community do not recommend heavy drinking, but allow that one or two units a week are alright. The same goes for other European nations. Also, remember that chances are I'm not actually pregnant.
When that does happen, I will stop drinking, but while I'm in this seemingly never-ending ttc limbo, I refuse to act as if I am. To be honest with you, it's too depressing when it comes to nothing.
