When You Can’t Drink….Lie

5 excuses for not drinking during your first trimester.

That first trimester of pregnancy can be a real doozy on your social life. Not only can you not drink, but if you’re waiting to share the news of your pregnancy till your first trimester is over, you often have to lie about not drinking. There are only so many excuses a girl can come up with before bursting “I’m pregnant!” So for those evenings you find yourself on that same walk, I grant you 5 pregnancy lies to make all your own.

1. Tell them you’re doing a juice cleanse:
It’s all the rage these days, and they’re probably doing one next week. Just make sure you eat before you meet them and know which juice company you’re fake representing.

2. Tell them you’re on antibiotics:
Just please make sure to come up with why. A dear friend of mine started thinking that I had an STD because I couldn’t give her a clear answer as to why I was taking meds. Can we say “ew”?

3. Tell them you’re cutting back on calories:
When they ask you why? Lie again: “I wanna be skinnier, duh.”

4. Tell them you’re trying to get pregnant:
Affirm them with something like: “Don’t be an idiot. I’d totally tell you if I was!”

5. Tell them you have to be on point for something work-related tomorrow:
They’ll respond with the usual: “God, you’re such a workaholic.”

And when those don’t work as excuses for not drinking while pregnant? Invite them over for a “cocktail” and make yourself this delicious N/A recipe provided by Executive Chef & Managing Partner of Center Bar, Michael Lomonaco:

Raspberry Cooler
1 oz raspberry puree
½ of agave nectar
top with club soda
orange twist
Glass: Highball
Method- combine the raspberry puree and the agave nectar in a highball. Stir and then fill up the glass with ice, top with club soda. Stir and then fill up the glass with ice, top with club soda

Just don’t forget to add booze to your friend’s glass.

Cheers.

  1. Or, how about saying that you are a designated driver, assuming you are with your partner?
