LOL - not laughing at you but just at the situation...how many women end up pregnant because they were drinking too much.

It's funny once we are ttc...we get all worried about the alcohol....it shouldn't matter.

I think my daughter was conceived on a night my dh and i were ripped.

Hello! even when this is a veeeeeery good question, I don't believe you can post twice in a row girl. It says it in the terms and conditions.....just to let you know! ;) is not me the one with the rules....but I would hate to see people start fights.....
Good luck to you! =))

No problem girl, you know, there's some hormones going on with all of us....;)
Like I said, that was a very gooooood question, I was in fact wondering the same, I went out last weekend with the girls and got 2 drinks.....didn't get drunk at all.....but I still wonder if it was NOT good.....I was at 6 dpo's....hmmmmmm
Would it affect at that point? i don't know! =/

I think it would only be a problem if it were a common occurance whereby your body started to suffer physically from the 'over use' of alcohol! LOL I mean that if you were to do this every weekend (or more often than not) than you may start to find it a problem with regards to fertility or ovulation, but I think your body whould probably start to show other signs of disfunction to indicate that it was suffering, eg skin, hair, eyes (brightness of), weight etc.

Like someone else said here, there are many women who have fallen pregnant (on more than one occasion) whilst on the ****!

i would think if you were drinking like this daily it would be a  problem. but most of us have drank while ttc or just after before we knew. dont worry! fingers crossed for you!

If that's a weekly pattern for you, it could be a problem. Regular alcohol use can raise your prolactin levels, which can cause you not to ovulate. But if this was just a celebratory week, and not your normal pattern, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks Ladies...It's so funny how much you "watch" for things when ttc.  :) I'm on CD 19 and we'll do the bd tonight until cd 21.....I'm not gonna rely on those stupid OPKs anymore.  And I have no idea when I'm gonna O so I think cd 21 should be ufficient enough :))  Thanks 4 all your help!!

Alright here's my question ... I am going out this weekend for a relatively big girls weekend ... and I am due to Ovulate around Wednesday/Thursday next week ...

Will the alcohol ( and possible the two or three cigarettes) I have this weekend affect my eggs and therefore possibly my baby in a negative way?
