When you’re sober, some social events are more intolerable than others.
When you’re pregnant, you quickly realise that the world does not, in fact, revolve around your pregnancy.
While you’re stone-cold sober for those 40 (plus) weeks sipping water, juice, tea, or some variation of a mocktail that would undoubtedly taste better with vodka, the people around you continue to get married, host parties, go to happy hour or kick back at home on Friday night with a bottle of red. Rude, right?
But just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean your social life needs to be put on hold.
You will still have events to attend, friends to see and dinners to endure. And to avoid insanity, you should go. But when you’re sober, some of the aformentioned events are more tolerable than others. The worst offenders?
Feel like a drink? Try: This is the best excuse ever to drink wine. All of the wine.
I’ve been to five concerts while pregnant. All happened at different stages of my pregnancy and all were very different “vibes” and with different groups of friends. I think all of these things make a difference when considering how tolerable it is. Generally speaking, you don’t have to be drunk to enjoy a concert.
Except Lolla. Be drunk for that. Or high. Something.
