    @LunaFleurLavender:  Personally, I think you should wait. I have experienced a MC before and it is not something I would want to deal with before my wedding. You experience emotions that you never knew you had.. It is crazy!! 

     

    Anyway, I think waiting 2 more months wouldn’t hurt. Start trying straight after the wedding.  If you did get pregnant before.. You may have annoying symptoms beforehand and it may not let you enjoy your wedding as much as you could if you weren’t pregnant.  

     

    I am in a similar position to you. Our wedding is October 2014 and were thinking about TTC now so we will have bub at the wedding lol. We decided against and instead we are waiting until straight after the wedding. Hopefully we will have a 2015 baby 🙂 

     

    We are only in our 20s and in looking at you picture id say you guys are a similar age. It wouldn’t be such a bad idea for both if us to wait 🙂

    If you don’t miscarry you’ll be pregnant (obviously!) that means possible morning sickness, bloating, fatigue, etc. I wouldn’t want to feel bad on my wedding day. Maybe you can ttc on the honeymoon!

    I definitely recommend waiting. Now this is coming from someone who didn’t wait. We were so eager to have a baby that we started trying about a month before the wedding. I didn’t think it would happen right away, but it did. I was only 5 weeks pregnant at my wedding, but I already felt pregnant. I was bloated and gassy. I was worried about being stressed and hurting the baby which made me more stressed. My boobs were big and sore so wearing my bra hurt. Now, I did really enjoyed my wedding. The symptoms I was feeling really only bothered me leading up to the walk down the isle. Once I was into the swing of things I forgot all about my discomfort. Then we went on the honeymoon and that was completely miserable. I was really uncomfortable the whole time and I had morning sickness. I was crying the last day because I just wanted to go home. I am so happy to have this baby growing inside me and I wouldn’t change it for the world, but I do think I missed out on some of the wedding and honeymoon experience because we couldn’t wait another month or two.

    @LunaFleurLavender:  lol I agree. I think about babies every day. Whenever I see a baby in public my heart skips a beat. My younger cousin just had a baby and he is gorgeous… makes me want one even more lol.  We are 23 and 24 and sometimes I feel really Young… Then other times i feel quite old lol. I keep calculating how old I will be if my future baby turned 20 lol. Once I find myself calculating myself to be 40-50 years old I freak out and want to TTC asap because I start feeling old haha!!

    I would wait. You want to be able to enjoy your wedding and drink (if you drink) and you definitely don’t want to worry about pregnancy symptoms.
