Well!! this was interesting!!! just spoke to my best friend she lives in Australia (waiting to come home without OH long storey) and we starting talking about our 40ths (both in September this year) I said im not sure yet wether to do something and she just went on one???! She said I shouldn't be thinking about a party with drinking??????? She thinks I should not be drinking at all over this period of IVF (3 years!) Now don't yet me wrong I get where shes coming from but Jesus I dont feel i deserved that!
Ive had 1 failed OE cycle in the UK and 2 failed DE cycles in Cyprus. Im sorry but when I have a failed attempt I do tend to drown my sorrows at weekends a bit with friends to make myself try to feel better. However leading up treatment I cut it right down and knock it on the head about a month before we fly out. Interestly the clinic in Cyprus say stop drinking on transfer day!!! Anyway, now im doubting myself?! Should I go through the next god knows how many years trying for a baby not having a tipple??! Now to put things into perspective im no alcky but I do enjoy a glass of vino and a voddy and coke but I only have some at weekends after working all week? Treatment is in October should I be T - Total now?
PS this friend has 2 children one of which she was carrying while on a bender in Amsterdam! (she didn't know she was pregnant)
