    During your tww?

    As I am just experiencing my first official tww I was curious as to whether anyone stopped doing anything during their tww, for example stop drinking alcohol?

    I don't smoke and don't really drink very often but I've been super aware of everything I've been doing! It's silly really I guess. Even DH has got in on the act and has been more protective of me! I don't think I've ever been this aware of my body before actually knowing I'm pg!

    I don't drink, I don't take hot baths, I don't do heavy exercise, I barely have sex.

    I have had 3 miscarriages though so I am extra cautious.

    Aww. I don't blame you for being extra cautious! Hope the next one is a sticky bean!!

    I'm not taking hot baths anymore either and I'm really aware of how hot I'm getting in general!

    I only found this out last cycle [we only have a bath as as well - no shower]

    It can mess with your body temp and interfere with the developing fetus.

    (I just read this on a website that also tells you not to drink tap water or use a microwave in early pregnancy :shock:)

    I think it's more old wives tale than actual fact......

    As above really, I tended to do nothing in my 2ww that I wouldnt do in pregnancy.
    No drink, gym, sex, runny eggs, nurofen or anything other than paracetamol.
    This time, wouldnt you know, I thought "sod it, I'm never pregnant, I'm having a few wines" so I did and I was! x

    I don't actually cut back on caffiene :shock: but I don't like most foods you aren't supposed to have during pregnancy so obviously don't eat them :).

    Also I only take paracetamol in 2ww...

    As you say Bell, no wonder the 2ww feels like an eternity - we give up all our vices.....

    When we were trying I gave up alcohol, cut back on caffeine, only gentle sex (but not often), stopped cleaning out the cat litter which I loved lol. But before my BFP we hadn't actually been trying so I was cutting back on none of the above and doing all of them regularly. Maybe relaxing helps, 2ww was always a tense time of symptom spotting.

    I did cut back this time cos I pretty muhc thought I was pregnant. Though I had had a couple of premixed cans of SArchers an Lemonade (more comfort drinking due to bereavement in the family) but I work with alot of casenotes at work and I had been watching how many I was lifting at a time etc and generally treating myself as if I was pregnant and now I am pregnant I dont really miss alcohol as was never a big drinker anyway
