I seriously hope no one I know is on here and sees this, because we’re definitely not telling our family or friends yet. But aaaah I have to tell someone! 🙂
Since we’re getting married in 2.5 weeks, last month FI and I kinda started being… not-so-careful in terms of preventing. We want kids soon and I have some health issues that I thought would make it more difficult. Ha. Or so I thought. 🙂
I took a test Friday (and every day since then) and I’m definitely pregnant. I’m going to the doctor today to confirm, and to make sure my health issues aren’t going to cause any problems. I’m feelin’ it though… I think I already have every symptom in the book!
And this is really terrible, but one of my first thoughts when I found out was… “I’m not going to be able to drink at my own wedding!” Normally I’m not much of a drinker, but we came up with these two absolutely delicious signature cocktails that are sooo yummy! Oh well…
And I’m already having trouble keeping this secret. I am NOT good at this stuff, I feel like it’s so obvious that I have a secret, especially with my mom. Aaaah! So crazy. Okay, I feel a little better now that I’ve told you all. 😀

And don’t worry about the drinking- it will ensure you have awesome memories of your wedding.

Congrats! I am a terrible secret keeper, I would die trying to wait to tell people I was pregnant, but it’s probably for the best to wait until you see your doctor.

Congrats that is so exciting!
Maybe get the bartender to make you some virgin signature cocktails so it looks like you are drinking!

congrats!! very exciting!
are you going to tell anyone pre-wedding (i know that is still early to tell people…)? I know someone who said that the first person who knew that she was pregnant was her regular bartender… she would always go to the same place with friends and had to pull him aside to let him know that whatever is ordered, she needs a virgin. You might need to at least tell the venue, they can sneak you some sparkling cider!

CONGRATS!! That is so exciting!
I agree with Virgin drinks at your wedding! No one will know! 🙂
I wish you the best.

Yes, I think I’ll have to work out an arrangement with the bartender. 🙂 They could easily make the signature drinks without the alcohol and they’d look the same.
@BeachFanatic: I think I’ll end up having to tell my parents pretty soon, just because they know me toooo well for me to be able to keep a secret this big from them!

I’d be bursting at the seams with that secret! I’m horrible keeping good secrets! Congrats!! This is the best reason every not to be able to drink on your wedding day! You won’t even feel like you’re missing out!

Congrats! How exciting! I’m sure no one will notice if you’re not drinking alcohol at the wedding, especially if you get ‘virgin’ versions of your signature drinks!

Thank you everyone
Also… You know the crazy vivid dreams you have with pregnancy? Well try adding crazy wedding dreams to crazy pregnancy dreams… YIKES! I dreamed last night that my fiance’s aunt gave me another bridal shower (I had mine two weeks ago) and I was there, then suddenly decided to leave and go home. Then when I got home I realized that everyone would be really mad at me because I had left my own shower, so I went back there and everyone was gone. And mad at me. And they had opened my presents without me!
So weird, especially since normally I hardly ever remember my dreams!

I was on such a natrual high at my wedding I barely had anything to drink anyways – I doubt you will even miss it!

Keeping it a secret is hard! I find myself having to drift of mid thought and pretend I forgot what I was going to say because it’s baby-related. Like “I am so happy I am not doing the scrubbing when we move out of our apartment because chemicals aren’t good for the baby”. Or “man, I must be going crazy due to pregnancy hormones”. We had to tell our immediate families early on, because we see them too often and I couldn’t not be talking about it.
