@vicarswifeintraining:

I just wonder if your soon to be husband will get into trouble (for his job) if you tell people at the wedding?  IDK but maybe if that is an issue, maybe people will not think about it, if you tell them a month or two after the wedding, then you could maybe pretend that the baby came early???

I would tell your FI and ask him what he thinks. It may affect his job, or he may have a strong opinion either way, so I would talk to him first.

I really think you should tell your FI before you make any decisions. Honestly, if my FI found out that the internet knew before he did, he’d be very hurt.

@vicarswifeintraining: normally if you are only 1 week pregnant, it won’t show up on the tests yet–the hormone level isn’t strong enough yet. didn’t you post a thread awhile ago about thinking you were pregnant? you were probably right at that point.

edit: i wouldnt tell your guests at the wedding. i’d tell your fiance, and then tell people around 3 months because you never know what might happen..you’d be like what, 2 months at the wedding?

What if you have a 9lb baby…. I don’t think people will believe it is a little premature. You might want to just let people think what they want. Personally, I would tell people a couple months after my wedding.

vicarswifeintraining  I’d tell my fiance’ right away. Speaking from experience, if anything happened to your baby you would need his support more than ever. I could not have gone through my miscarriage alone… my fiance’ has been here for me every step of the way. Just a little something for you to think of.

@vicarswifeintraining:

If it won’t jeopardize FI’s job, and it is just close friends and family–I think it would be totally fun to announce that you are expecting at your wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

A friend of mine in the same situation decided to announce the great news at her wedding by posting it on the back of the wedding programs.

I don’t think you should announce it at the wedding. I think it would take away from the focus on you as a couple. Mrs. Dumpling was pregnant at her wedding, and most of her close friends and family knew (including their priest), but they focused on their marriage that day, and she didn’t make a public announcement until afterwards. It wasn’t as if they tried to pretend she wasn’t pregnant, but they just focused on the wedding first. I think you will be glad to have done it that way — you have your whole lives to be parents, but only one day to be the bride and groom! 

As far as your husband’s occupation, even though his parishioners may not be there, I can imagine that some of your friends and family are very religious and may be uncomfortable. It would probably be better to not risk that, and be somewhat quiet about it until after the wedding. But I wouldn’t pretend the baby was premature — just let people figure it out for themselves!
