I'm enjoying the last of my wine

I need to catch up. But real quick, we had our baseline ultrasound and bloodwork on Wed. Everything looks good. The nurses were great and answered all my questions, which included, "What can I do and not do once I start my medications on Saturday."
"Treat your body like you are pregnant. No alcohol, ibuprofen, medications, caffeine, etc."
OK, I don't drink much beer or liquor but I love my wine. I just love the taste of wine. I can't drink anymore wine starting on Saturday. I have two nights left to drink wine. Honestly, I pray to God that I can't drink wine for the next 9-10 months. But I am still going to miss it. I plan to try some NA wine. Let me know if you have tried any NA's that are good! Thanks.

Welch's makes a tasty non-alch. I can't remember the exact name, but when we were younger my mom used to buy it for holidays and things.

Good luck with everything!

Hi! Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and praying for you as you start the meds today!

Tracy, you may not want to hear this, but you might be better off not going the NA route - there is so much sugar in those brands. You might find that you don't even have the taste for it once you're pregnant.
God's richest blessings on this process. Remember, he is a powerful God and he loves you. He will do what is best for you and your faith. He loves you - hold on to that.

I promise that I will drink enough wine in the next 9 months for the both of us. I know...a big sacrafice, but I'll do my best.

Well...I haven't found a NA wine that's worth anything. But, the best NA beer in my opinion is St. Pauli's Girl...and it's widely avaiable at stores and restaurants. Hope that's helpful! I LOVE my wine too, and boy is it hard to give up - even when you know it's for such a good reason.

Good luck with this cycle!

Hi there! Not sure how I found you, (I didn't even watch the Oprah show), but wanted to wish you all the success in the world. For what it's worth, my partner and I tried 3 years of IUI's with no sucess (after Clomid, injectables, etc) and got pregnant with our daughter the first IVF! So, it does work. I will be following you to see how things go! Remember, the hormones make you crazy so talk it out here!
