What are your thoughts on giving up vices prior to conception?

I drink wine with dinner and coffee with breakfast... what are your thoughts?

Everything in moderation. But when it comes to pregnancy there are some things you should avoid altogether. But for Coffee and Wine. You can continue to drink a glass of wine with dinner and it isn't going to do any harm. Think about the cultures that do so with no ill effects, it is those who don't stop at just one glass of wine. The same with coffee, if you only have one cup in the morning, it's okay, it's when you have a pot of coffee a day that you should be worried. The key is a healthy diet, exercise, and rest. If you have that covered everything will be just fine.

My doctor is used to 18 year old wives with two kids coming in three months pregnant already! hahaha jk I am not a bitch...

Yeah, I'd just start slowing cutting back - keep your vices, but don't overindulge. :) Doctors are such an odd species. My regular and OBGYN made a point of telling me to get prenatals and yours acts like it's nothing!

But of course, just my opinion! :-) I have no clue about this medically speaking.

woah, yeah I think you need to slowly cut back. That much isn't good for you or the baby. Though I am one to talk... I am always drinking something with some form of caffeine.

I DO have 4 cups a day!!! Today I mixed decaf whole beans with reg whole beans... I am just going to eventually cut it down to just decaf... If I can do this before I get pregnant, the better.

LOL!!!! Lauren. :-) I think moderation is key. I think coffee is fine as long as you are not having 4 cups a day! Do whatever you feel is best. You are the momma to be anyways!

He also acted like I was a loony toon for coming in BEFORE I was pregnant, and no joke, his words to me were, "You know these prenatals are not magic pills, they won't make you pregnant!" hahaha I am not even going to do that whole planning ovulation thing. I am just going to have sex a lot! ;)
LaurenG22 LaurenG22 8 years
hahaha thanks for your vote!! :) I feel badly drinking wine and coffee but I feel like, well, why not!? I am not pregnant yet... I don't know. I will have no problem doing that once I am pregnant, but whatever... the doctor basically told me to live my life, try to not be stressed, eat well, and exercise.

I think everything in moderation. How did everything go at the doctors? Personally, I'm just glad that I won't have this problem! Sounds so mean...:)

I had wine with dinner last night and bought Decaf today so I can learn to cut down... I just don't want to do the wrong thing but I want to enjoy my life while I am waiting... ughhhhhhhhhhhh
