As my pregnancy is nearing its much-anticipated end (we go in for a scheduled C-section next Friday, October 12th), I have to say that one of the most common questions I’ve gotten during this whole adventure is “How have you done it??? Don’t you miss wine/drinking/alcohol???” As I’ve talked about along the way, I realized after a while that it wasn’t the actual wine that I missed, but more the buzz that I was truly feeling without.
Of course, being pregnant makes not drinking more of a requirement than a challenge, but it’s still a choice and it still takes willpower and self-control. Now, what I’m wondering is: Could you do it? Could you go 40 weeks without that relaxing, warming, TGIF buzz that comes along with having a couple of glasses of wine or a martini or two? What’s your story???
