TTC Before Vacation?

Hi girls!

So my DH and I are finally starting to TTC next month (yay!) and according to my FF, my primo BD days before ovulation are going to be July 13-15. We leave for Hawaii on July 18th for a week long vacation. We are definitely planning on relaxing and enjoying ourselves but I would also like to have a Mai tai or two.. Should I wait to TTC until August or if we do get super lucky to get preggo right away in July, would that drink everyday hurt the baby? I really don't wanna have to put it off until August but I also don't want to cause any harm to a potential pregnancy.

Thanks, ladies! My DH is all for starting in July but I wanted your expertise!

FI and I were having one last grown-up vacation in Orlando before TTC - it was 10 days of beer, hot dogs and roller coasters (and more beer!!). When we got home I felt rough, I assumed I'd picked up a bug on the plane home, but 3 days later I had a positive test!!

Honestly I don't think it will be a problem having a few drinks, and being relaxed on a vacation (which I'm VERY jealous of FYI!) could increase your chances of conceiving - it works for lots of teenage girls every weekend!!! (Sorry, bad joke!)

Have a great trip xx

I'm with Canooknic. Last year in September we decided to start ttc for our second one. Then in November we went on a holiday, still ttc-ing, and I had a few drinks too. After the holidays I was so so tired, we took a test, and I was pregnant. I called my dr and she said, if in the very frist days of pregnancy something happens to the baby, because of the food/drinks you have, then it's like "all or nothing". She said there was nothing to be scared about. So we're having a holiday baby :-) 
Yes, beeing relaxed on vacation def increases the chance of conceiving ;-)

Ditto the other ladies - enjoy yourself!! In a month we are going on a cruise, and if this cycle isn't the cycle, the cruise will be right on my O week, and I am planning on enjoying myself a little if we aren't PG. If you are lucky and get PG your first try, I don't think it will hurt anything because it would be so early on!!

I'd say go for it.  I've heard that early on in pregnancy your body is really protecting the fetus (from things like alcohol) so there isn't really anything to be worried about in moderation.  It sounds horrible, but I actually know quite a few girls who got drunk then got a BFP a few days later (a bottle of wine at dinner, a girls night out dancing, etc).  Once they got that BFP they stopped and they all have healthy, adorable kids.  It almost seems to be a right of passage to have that last hoorah before a BFP ;-)

Thanks so much, ladies! You have all out my mind at ease! We will go for it and I will definitely enjoy our (hopefully) last vacation just the two of us! Fingers crossed for lots of BFPs this summer!!
