Trying to conceive

hello ladies probably a daft question
I am just over midway through 2ww wait and due to go drinking tomorrow for a birthday. Do you abstain in case or continue to drink in moderation until you have done a pregnancy test? I probably normally drink one glass of wine a week at the most but this is a cocktails glam party and it would be nice to partake in a tipple.
tomorrow is 9dpo to test or not? Drink or not?

I never changed my plans in the 2ww, or in TTC at all. I don't get drunk anyhow but I wouldn't stop completely. If enjoy a cocktail or two if it were me. I never tested until I was actually late too, but I know most test earlier than that.

As raincloud said, I haven't changed my drinking habits at all and I regularly have 'big' nights out.
I figured if I ever do get pregnant I'll have 9 months of not being able to do things so why change now 'just in case'
If I ever do get a bfp I'll stop drinking at that point

Thanks ladies I thought I was probably being over cautious

I drank during the 2ww too. I think so long as you're not silly about it, there's no reason not to!

I would drink, eat everything you're not allowed while pregnant and enjoy yourself! X

I did but only because of a few losses. I asked my consultant and he advised to stop post ovulation. I had made h stop too but he said that so long as h didn't exceed the recommended limit throughout the cycle then there shouldn't be an issue. There was never any cause for my losses (2 mc and a TFMR at 18+5 due to abnormalities), I think they just threw everything at it iyswim. My friend was under a mc specialist consultant who advised absolutely no alcohol or caffeine (she struggled more with the caffeine )

In saying that this time (very surprise pregnancy and unsure when conceived), I had a huge party and was vvvv drunk at some point in the cycle I think it was pre ov though but I certainly drank in the run up to my bfp (wine with dinner etc)

I avoid caffeine already as bf my DD, think I will just see how I feel might end up on the mocktails as not feeling amazing anyway. Thank you ladies for all your responses.

I used to cut out alcohol, caffeine, etc. when TTC, but tbh when you're TTC for well over a year it gets very boring very quickly. I know that it was the HyCoSy that cleared my tubes and made it possible for me to conceive, but the month that I did I drank loads. HyCoSy on Thursday, flew to Tunisia on Sunday, OV'd on Monday morning, was in Tunisia until the following Sunday...it was all inclusive, so I drank my body weight in wine and cocktails that 2WW...I had wine pre noon til midnight every day.
