    Okay thank you Atomic, I think I understand a little better now. So alcohol sways pink only because it reduces sperm count, but it's not more likely to kill off the Ys or anything like that, causing them to be outnumbered by the Xs? So it basically harms an even amount of X and Y at various stages of development.. and anything that reduces count is viewed as swaying pink. Am I following?

    I think I will try to get some more blue swayers opinions whether or not they would go for it, but I think maybe I'm just being overly paranoid about this. Thank you for your explanation and for all your help!

    Yes exactly. The original theory was that lower sperm numbers swayed pink and higher swayed blue and until that gets debunked we still treat it as a viable theory. BUT that having been said I am less convinced on alcohol than some other things (and people get boys with those things too!!)

    The whole alcohol thing when ttc does worry me - I have watched several documentaries about fetal alcohol syndrome and whilst there are strong links to the birth defects when consuming high quantities of alcohol during first trimester, there were also genetic factors that might be triggered by lower quantities so *personally* I would never think it safe to drink alcohol in the 2ww and only AF-OV on cycles when youre attempting

    And that's totally up to each individual to decide for themselves. I strongly urge everyone to do what they are comfortable with.

    My husband I both drink, H drinks at least 1 daily. I was drinking a ton when I conceived my oldest (he wasn't planned). One thing I noticed was the study on bone mass. Atomic, do you think certain women with certain builds tend to have more sons or daughters? I'm thin but athletic; I have muscle without exercising. I'm probably big boned because I look emaciated when my weight drops below 130. I have two boys, so I don't know if that's connected at all.

    For most European caucasians, occasional alcohol is fine during pregnancy. Asians and native Americans are much more sensitive to alcohol. Weeks 8-13 are when the fetus is most susceptible to alcohol. Bottom line is, we don't know what the magic number is so it's whatever you're comfortable with.

    Yes, I do think women of different builds have different odds but remember, if that was actually a dealbreaker, we gals who are muscular naturally would not even have the genes to DO that!!
