dont want friends to know im pregnant yet but going to a winery tomorrow.

Im going to a winery tomorrow with my neighbors and we always drink a lot. How can I go without them knowing something is up? Is it ok to have a small glass of wine at 6 weeks?

  • Not go?  Say you're sick.

    At 6 weeks I wouldn't risk it.  Maybe later in pregnancy one or two drinks won't do much, but this early I personally wouldn't.

  • Tell them you have a UTI and your taking antibiotics where you can drink. And honestly if your going to a winery,chances are you will not have a good time since the whole scenery is everyone trying different wines. I would personally say Im sick and not go, its not worth the risk and you probably will not have fun. Plan a date with your husband instead!  :)

  • I did the fake drinking thing a lot - swap glasses with your husband, nurse one glass of wine for a looong time. Unless they are on pregnancy watch, people often aren't watching you as much as you think they are. I threw a lot of wine into pot plants early on in my pregnancy.

    I actually really have a UTI and am taking antibiotics. I went to a bar for a girlfriend's birthday and had pineapple juice. I said that drinking more than one drink would make me sick and my friend still pushed drinks on me. I stuck with my juice and water.

  • I'm going out for my birthday this weekend...same boat. I'm only 4w and I'm definitely not telling anyone til after I hear a heartbeat. I'm thinking I'll just take a Gatorade bottle & tell everyone there's alcohol in it? They are going to be suspicious if I'm caboozing with no booze...everyone knows we've been trying since last June... I would not even drink a sip. Especially this soon.
  • @kmerkle1 my fall back trick to when I go to bars with friends is to order soda water with lime...looks just like a gin and tonic.  Or you can always tell the bartender that you are pregnant and don't want your friends to know so any drink you order to make virgin!
