Long-time lurker; first-time poster here.
Getting married August 10 and just found out yesterday I’m PREGNANT! Will be around 14 weeks at the wedding.
I’m excited (we weren’t exactly NOT trying to get pregnant), but I’m also nervous that I’m going to be a) too big for my dress, b) too tired for my shoes, c) too sick to enjoy it, d) mad that I can’t have champagne!
I also don’t want the whole focus of the wedding to be on the baby, but I feel like by 14 weeks everyone that will be there will already know, or they will figure it out.
Just needed to share and perhaps get some perspective. 🙂

Congrats! I will say that IMO, (and depending on your dress) you shouldnt be showing too much. I am 5’9″ and about 135 and when I was prego, I didnt show until I was about 18 weeks (and my son was a huge 9 pounder!) Don’t worry, for baby’s sake… your wedding will be great!

Thanks! Yeah, I’m hoping I won’t start showing till later. I’m not super skinny or petite so I’m thinking I can hide it a little while.
It’s super weird switching my focus from eating to look awesome in my dress to eating to nourish a baby! Weird, but nice. 🙂

Congrats! I’m guessing in terms of the dress it will depend on what style you have? If it’s fitted around your adbomen then you may have some issues? But if it’s not super fitted, I don’t think you’ll have a problem. Also, I’ve heard that for some women the nausea and stuff gets a bit better after first trimester, so hopefully you are one of those ladies!
