Enough of that.
Drinking alcohol while trying to conceive is something I've touched upon in the past (here). One can completely lay off the sauce, carry on as usual or opt for something in between. It's a personal choice and when it comes to making the choice, reasonable minds differ. Two women may treat one drink (of alcohol) very different - see how I awkwardly circled back to the title?
In recent times, I've found myself among several woman, all friends, who've made different choices when it comes to drinking alcohol while trying to get pregnant. It was, unfortunately, awkward. Everyone was upfront about pregnancy wishes and everyone was upfront about their personal choices when it came to alcohol consumption. The awkwardness came from the non-upfront judgment that passed between the differing perspectives.
The Drinkers - These ladies thought it the non-drinkers were high strung and generally lame. They were slightly annoyed that the non-drinkers had decided to take such an extreme measure. What's the big deal with a single glass of wine? It's not like the non-drinkers were actually pregnant. Or...maybe they were actually pregnant, which is why they had drawn such a hard line...hmmm....
The Non-Drinkers - These ladies thought the drinkers were irresponsible and immature. They were slightly concerned that the drinkers had decided to take such a cavalier stance on such an important issue. A single glass of wine could be a single glass of wine too much. It's impossible to know the moment that trying to get pregnant turns into being pregnant.
Of course I don't know exactly what the two sides were thinking because no one said anything out loud. But, I think I've imagined a likely back and forth. Just because reasonable minds may differ, doesn't mean reasonable minds don't judge each other differences. Judging is human nature. It's entirely unavoidable. So I'm not going to suggest that you not judge because that wouldn't work. But, maybe consider the other side because there is another side.
