Red Wine ok while TTC?

In short, DH and I have been through numerous IUI and 2 IVF which both have ended in miscarriage by the 6th week.  I'm going to be taking a break from treatments and wanted to know if drinking red wine is ok? I'm not talking about numerous glasses a night, maybe just a glass a couple of times a week.  We aren't going to stop TTC naturally, but wanted to add red wine into my diet since I hear it has such awesome health benefits. Hoping I do become pregnant one day, my plan is not to continue to drink wine during my pregnancy, but since I'm going to be taking a break at this point from infertility treatments and there is that rare chance I can become pregnant on my own, was just curious if I should add red wine to my diet.  Your suggestions and comments are welcome!

There are benefits to drinking wine...I would say drink up! Excessive is not good but you already know that so yes...it can even loosen you up and relax you a little more...maybe taking those TTC stresses away!!

Yep I would go for it for all the reasons heather said!

My belief is that it's fine to drink - not to excess, mind you - even while TTC....until you get that BFP.  So....enjoy :-)

Good luck :-)
