I keep having nightmares, and get really worried that I am going to get pregnant before the wedding. does anyone else have these? not that i wouldn’t love the baby and be happy. I just would love to enjoy my wedding day fully, enjoy atleast a few months of being married without being pregnant/having a baby and i also want to be married before having kids, always have. and i keep worrying so much!! I have heard its normal to worry about this.. but is there anyone else out there? 🙁

@mrsrecon: I’m worried about it, too! I really don’t want to get pregnant before the wedding and I don’t even have a date set lol – but I’m not having nightmares about it. Are you using protection??

If you use birth control, you probably won’t get pregnant.

Me too! I get a bit worried every month for no reason! I actually had the thought today that at least I could be pregnant now and not worry about giving birth AT my wedding. lol

Use birth control? I know you have to pay for it across the pond but that’s nothing compared to the price of raising a child.
We only use hormonal but we both know that if I got pregnant in the next 5 or more years that we would terminate it.

there are lots of ways yoiu can prevent that from happening, all with good success rates. Just pick one.

Well, you probably won’t get pregnant if you’re on birth control. However, there is only one birth control plan that is foolproof. How would your FI feel if you gave up sex for a few months before the wedding? Some brides do this anyway, as they feel it makes their wedding night more special.

I can’t say that i ever did worry about that. Probably because I got pregnant before I even started to worry about that! lol.
DH and I always talked about wanting to wait a year after we got married before start to TTC. But then all of a sudden 3 months before the wedding I popped positive on the PT.
If you are that worried about getting pregnant before the wedding then you just need to make sure that you are being extra careful and taking all the extra precautions not to get pregnant.
You’ll be fine 🙂

@mrsrecon: I have that same anxiety! The really ridiculous thing is that 1) I am on BC and 2) My fiance and I haven’t had actual intercourse in a long time (and when we do have it, we use condoms in addition to my being on BC).

Have you considered abstaining until after the wedding? That may not sound at all appealing to you or your FI; however, because all other forms of birth-control have some, however ridiculously small, rates of failure, it would be the one way to absolutely ensure that you would not risk conceiving prior to your wedding.

I TOTALLY felt that way. I am irrationally worried about morning sickness when I get preggo, so I worried our whole engagement that I would have awful morning sickness the day of our wedding, and on our honeymoon (which involved 11 flights… probably not fun for a preggo lady!). We just used 2 methods of protection and it all worked out 🙂

I’m in the same boat! I’m close enough now that I’m not as worried about it since if I happened to get pregnant I wouldn’t be showing much by then and would still fit in my dress! I could care less about being prego before, it’s more just fitting in the dress that I would worry about! Just be sure to be super vigilant about using whatever form of contraception you use!

You sound like me. I’m terrified of this. We use birth control and condoms… but have made the decision not to have sex for the next 5 months out of sheer terror.
I know this is only compounded by the fact that 4 of our friends (yes, 4 different couples) have announced their pregnancy in the past week and I’m convinced its similar to the plague.

Add me on the list too. I would be HORRIFIED if i got knocked up before the wedding. A pregnant bride waddling down the aisle just sounds so awful. We have also seriously discussed abstaining and while we’re not fully there yet, but let’s just say the no-pants-parties have really dramatically decreased.

@mrsrecon: I’m in the same boat. It’s not like I wouldn’t be happy in the end, but I really want to have kids after we’ve been married a while.
