    This is not really pregnancy related but my husband as a treat is taking me for dinner at the Oxo Tower tonight. I am really excited as it is like a date night and I have been looking forward to it for ages. However I feel bad for wanting a drink or 2! Is this normal?? I think that i should be entitled to enjoy a drink over Xmas but I worry that this is bad for TTC!!! Then I worry that I am thinking too much about it too much and trying to hard!

    Pointless thread.... so apolgies..

    Hey hun enjoy yourself and have a couple of drinks. People still have a couple of drinks (or more) before they even realise they are pregnant so dont stress about it.

    Hope you have a fab night chick xxxx

    Dont feel bad about wanting a drink hun there is no harm in having a few glasses, letting your hair down and forgetting for one night about ttc xx

    I feel the same as you Gizzy, it does ALWAYS cross my mind that my drinking makes me to blame for any possible future infertility woes.

    I always wonder if some people are just more sentivite to it than others...

    I mean, some people smoke 80 per day for 60 years and never get cancer and then some poor sod smoke 10 per day and dies at 30.

    All that said, i think that you need to have a drink when appropriate and i definitely think that a date night or an xmas bash is an appropriate time to have a drink or two.

    I wouldn't go crazy and go beyond very tipsy though :)

    Enjoy yourself ;)

    On a side note - The Oxo Tower is fab - we had our Xmas do there last year!

    Do what feels right hun.

    I try not to drink in my 2WW but with Christmas coming up I'll do what I feel is right at the time. If I want a few spritzers then I'll have them..

    Enjoy date night :)

    Thanks girls I had a really nice evening, it was so lovely to spend some time with hubby and actually not think about babies for one night. :D Got tipsy abs no hang over so feel great!

    Carnat your cocktail looks yummy I always wondered why you had that as your profile pics. The Singapore slings in the oxo Tower would thoroughly recommend!

    Vicky enjoy your few days off!!!!

    Enjoy the rest if your weekend girls! I am getting very excited about Xmas now. Xxxx

    It's my turn tonight :)

    All they serve at my friends parties is champagne so i'm just hoping the food is served earlier rather than later ;)

    Really looking forward to it though!
