Well, 6 weeks ago we did the deed without any protection (our first time EVER) and batta bing, batta boom, prego. I’m dumbfounded. I was just at the doctor last week and he told me because of luteal phase dysfunction I would need to take Clomid to get pregant (I even have a precription in my car). Plus, my friends at work tried for months, some even years and still nothing.
Now, I am an emotional rollercoaster about the recent news. I am of course, elated. It is our first child, we’re getting married in four weeks, own a beautiful home in a neighborhood with lots of kids, and have good jobs. However, I also have some feelings of doubt/regret that this happened one month too soon.

Wow, that is a big surprise to take in so soon before you wedding!! Give yourself time to adjust to this huge news. You will no doubt end up thrilled with your baby and it is great you conceived so easily. By your wedding you will technically be 12 weeks pregnant, but hopefully won’t be showing at all (although your breasts might be!). I am kind of surprised your doc didn’t know you were pregnant?

Sorry you’re feelings are all up and down but I’m sure your wedding will be filled with lots of joy and your baby will be a wondeful way to unite your new family.

Congrats! That is amazing that it happend so fast! I know it doesn’t seem like the right time with the wedding next month, but it happened, so it must be! You could even not tell anyone till after the wedding and no one would be the wiser. Enjoy everything!

Well that is life for you. Things rarely work out in just the way we hope. But congratulations! On the plus side, at least you don’t have to deal with fertility issues!

First of all, congrats!! …especially if it was supposed to be difficult for you to conceive. It’s possible that you would have tried for years and not had any luck. But instead, you happened to do the deed at just the right time, and now you’re going to have a baby.
Were you planning on trying for kids right after the wedding anyways? What is the cause of your regret then? …is it religious? …or just the idea that the “right” way to do things is to get pregnant after the wedding? Either way, I think now is the time to focus on making the best possible home for your child (and it sounds like you’re well on your way to that already!). …and hey, you won’t even be showing at your wedding 🙂

Just a little bit of regret about timing. I’m worried about being way more concerned about the pregnancy and not enjoying the wedding day. And once people do the math, having others judge!

I am a nurse, and we learned in nursing school that ambivalence is very common especially when you first find out you are pregnant. You are far from alone in feeling this way. Congratulations!!!

Even when you have planned and hoped for it and the timing is perfect, finding yourself pregnant is a bit of a shocker. Suddenly you realize what a huge deal it is to have a baby! Your feelings are totally normal. The last month before the wedding is stressful anyway, plus now you get bonus pregnancy hormones to deal with. As for people doing the math and judging … well, you can’t help that, unfortunately. Some people just live to find fault with others. If it wasn’t this, you can be sure it woud be something else.
This baby is a miracle, an early wedding gift. Hug that thought to yourself on your wedding day.

Wow, congratulations! As someone once told me, “babies will come when they will come” and there isn’t much else you can do about it! Everything will work out fine, but it’s totally normal to be a little shocked at first.

You wont be showing at all by 12 weeks. Thats when I went the the dr for the first time, they wouldnt even let me go to the dr until then. Just enjoy the wedding and just tell people you got pregnant on the honeymoon! No one is going to add it up exactly!

Honestly, if you are concerned about what other think, don’t tell anyone until after the wedding!

congrats! honestly, lots of us, even if we were already married & TTC get surprised at the “ambivalence” when we get our BFP…it is a big change and your hormones are already going haywire! I’m sure in the long run, you will feel so blessed that you were able to get pregnant without Clomid…also, sorry if unsolicited, but I would seriously consider a new doctor…everyone is too “drug happy” these days! my friend paid for IVF for her 1st and thought she needed it for her 2nd, but she got pregnant naturally and was in TOTAL shock…didn’t even suspect that was why she felt bad, bc her doc had convinced her she couldn’t conceive naturally! Best wishes now and in the future, and just give yourself a few days (and maybe even tears!) to process the news!
