I’m newly engaged to my FI and also new to the board. Because of our ages we are ttc before we actually have our wedding ceremony. I’m 37 and he’s 46 so we have very little time left. Has anyone ttc before their wedding? I know at my age it usually takes quite a while to conceive. We are tentatively planning the wedding next summer and I would like to have a ceremony with family and friends but I’m thinking if I do get pregnant sooner than later then we will just do a justice of the peace or destination wedding to keep it simple. Just wanted to drop by and say Hi and see if any other ttc bees are not quite married yet either.

Yes ma’am! I am 23 and he is 29 and we are TTC starting in January. Wedding is in March. We’re NTNT right now. If it happens, it happens. We had a surprise pregnancy that ended in miscarriage in May and ever since then we have been dying to start TTC. However, not fitting in my $1500 dress is reason enough to wait a little closer until the wedding.

We had thought about it – I’m 24 and he’s 35 – we seem to have lots of friends having difficulty so want to try – but since I’m young and we’re having a huge wedding I wanted to 1. not be sick on my honeymoon 2. not get judged that I got knocked up (super traditional family) 3. wouldn’t fit into the dress 4. could relax and drink at all the festivities leading up.

We did lol. I’m 28, he’s younger then me, but we decided to NTNT about 4 months before the wedding. With one month left before the wedding, I tested and was pregnant. So on my wedding day I was 2 months pregnant. Fortunatly I didn’t gain a ton of weight right off the bat so my dress still fit (the corset back helped). The only down side was fighting with horrible miserable never ending morning sickness. The actual day of the wedding it wasn’t too bad, I think I was too excited to feel sick, but the days leading up to the wedding were tough while we were getting everything set up.
Looking back, I can’t regret it- we both are super excited about the baby, and couldn’t be happier. However it was rough as far a planning/prepping with not feeling well and dealing with your body changing. Also keep in mind that a destination wedding may not be doable if you’re pregnant. You may not be comfortable with travel depending on how far along you are, or your doctor may veto it if you are high risk. If you’re okay with a local wedding scaled around how well you are feeling depending on how the pregnancy goes I’d say go for it and try. If its going to bother you if you don’t get the wedding of your dreams it might be better to wait a little longer.

We started TTC about 7 months before our wedding with no luck. We have been married for 6+ months are still TTC… Baby dust your way though! Best of luck!
