Probably not.  What condition does the doctor “believe” (as in THINKS you have, but hasn’t diagnosed?) you have that delaying trying for a few months longer would really make that much difference?

I would try to move up the wedding date before I intentionally tried to get pregnant before my wedding.  There was a similar question asked a few weeks ago, and my reasoning here would be the same.  There is no guarantee you’d be pregnant on your wedding day, and no guarantee that you’d have symptoms.  But I felt like rubbish the first several weeks of my pregnancy.  I was tired and nauseated almost constantly.  I would be hungry, eat a few bites of my food, then not be hungry/not want that food anymore.  I didn’t have any bloating, but a lot of women do, so you could have trouble fitting into your dress or at least be very uncomfortable.  All things I would not want to experience on my wedding day.

sjhanddab2014:  Yes, go for it!! We are TTC and our wedding is in October. We don’t have any medical issues that we are aware of. We just want a baby 🙂

I say go for it!  We are getting married in September and started TTC in July.  I have lymphedema in my legs (swelling) that gets really bad during summer.  I really don’t want to be 5-9 months pregnant in summer because my doctor has stated that it might require me to be on bed rest.  So in order to avoid that we started trying in July and will try to October and than take a break for 6 months.  At the end of the day the decision is between you and your FI and if that’s what you two want than I say do it!

they found a fibroid about a year before i was married (wasn’t even engaged yet) and gyn said get pregnant asap.  i didn’t put pressue on DH, but we knew we were getting married.

after engagement, i wanted to TTC before wedding.  he wasn’t ready and i couldn’t convince him to start earlier.

now, 12 cycles after wedding, i’m still not pregnant.  i’ve been through all the testing and the fibroid isn’t causing any isssues as far as they can tell.

would starting a few months before the wedding have made a difference?  who knows. BTW, I’m 33 and DH is 36 currently.

good luck to you and i hope it all works out for you.

sjhanddab2014:  If a baby is what you both want, go for it. There is never a right time so before or after the wedding wouldn’t make a difference. You luckily have some information/advice from a doctor so I would follow their advice if I were you. 

 

It’s a decision you need to make with your FI and make sure you are both ready 🙂 xx

For a couple of months, no I would not. I’d rather wait than risk being sick as a dog on my wedding day.

we have a medical reason to TTC ASAP, so we’re doing it before we’re married.  i’d say go for it!

sjhanddab2014:  Absolutely. No question about it.

But, my FI and I really want to have a family. If it wasn’t a medical condition I would absolutely not TTC before the wedding. We’re planning on being married for a year before we TTC.
