There's A Dilemma

First off thank you all for throwing your progesterone dust my way. I received a call around 6pm yesterday saying my levels were good, at 36 point something. I was pleasantly surprised. In the last 24 hours I've gone from totally believing that I am NOT pregnant, to then thinking that I'm pregnant with multiples, to back to thinking there's no way I'm pregnant. Gotta love the mind of an infertile.
Ok, moving on to my original topic, my dilemma. You know ladies, it might be hard to believe this, but uh, I used to be a bit of a "party girl" in my day. (Pause for reaction.) I guess I was what you'd call "the life of the party." I mean if there was a party, I was there, and if I was there, there was a party. Now, before you go deleting yourself from following me, please do realize that I was never NEVER the girl in the above picture. I just put her there for artistic purposes. What I love most about her is if you look close enough, you can see a wedding ring on. That's classy folks.
To the point: The DH and I are travelling this weekend to meet up with our friends for a going away party for one of them. The group being a very close college friend of mine, a friend of the DH's that actually used to live with us, and many other partyin peeps. Now I have shared with a few of my friends and family about our ttc situation. However, with this particular group, ttc is the last thing on everyones mine and I've just decided to keep our struggle to ourselves.
As I have said before, I've actually stopped drinking. I know, I know, the embryo or lack there of doesn't even share fluids for quit some time but still, it has made me feel better in the fact that I know I am doing all I can do. My BIGGEST fear is that my lack of drinking will get noticed, (ok, I know for sure it will, these people are like hawks) More scary yet, I'm deathly afraid of the whole, "Are you pregnant?" question. I mean I think I would laugh if off, shoot my drink out my nose, and have something mysteriously get in my eye all at the same time.
As you can see I'm really nervous about the whole situation. My hubs and I have a few plans were gunna stick to, but heck, he can't drink ALL my drinks AND his own all night. (Well, he COULD but I'm in no mood to clean up after him! lol)
I know I'm stressing over nothing (I hope) but it's either stress over my slurp and spit plan or implantation bleeding. Flip a coin.

Thanks Carrie!!!

Just tell them you are doing a cleanse and part of it is not to drink...that could work!

I have the same problem! I also have that group of friends and that kind of history with them. I get freaked every time I face something like this. I like the cleanse suggestion Lisa mentioned. since it's Jan you could claim not drinking to be part of a new years res?

I once said that I had gotten really sick from drinking recently and just couldn't handle it so soon. Huge lie but luckily I had just been to Vegas so it worked well lol

Hi Tiffany,
I somehow have surfed onto your beautiful blog and am laughing at this post. This is like THE dilemma of all dilemmas that we if'er face. For so long it was me as the catty one hawking in on who was abstaining, so I know that everyone is watching me, and I so totally do not want to talk about it in those situations. My dh and I are headed on an annual summer trip with the big group of college buddies. i feel so conflicted about it. We are dealing with mfi and so my dh needs to abstain from all the extracurricular activities, which is going to really suck.

I suppose it will all be worth it when he gets to feel our someday baby kicking. :)

That picture is awesome, btw!
