There’s no comparison!!!!!!! For me, that is..I was way more stressed about the wedding than about having my babies!!!!

I go with last month of pregnancy.

I had big babies, so that was pretty stressful.

I don’t remember stressing about my first wedding at all, but then I also wanted to back out of that one.

This wedding I’m getting pretty stressed already, but that’s because we’ve been dealt some serious blows this year and plan to ttc before the wedding because of my age. I hope everything falls into place and that last month won’t be too bad.

Hmmmm….I don’t remember either being particularly stressful.  But I had healthy and relatively easy pregnancies; if you have a difficult pregnancy, I would imagine working right before your baby is due would be harder.

I really don’t understand why people get so stressed out before weddings.  We had a big wedding and I remember just being happy that actual week.  In fact, I went bridal gown shopping with one of my bridesmaids for her own dress 2 days before I got married.

While I’m not a mother yet, I am pregnant. I think it really depends on how your pregnancy goes. For me, working and being pregnant has been 100 times worse than leading up to my wedding day, but I’ve been extremely sick and had to miss tons of work because of it. At least with the leading I wasn’t throwing up 6+ times a day and I was actually able to eat.

I definitely stressed over my wedding, but I was doing tons of DIY projects and basically took the lead role in everything for it. Still, pregnancy has been so much worse.

If my pregnancy continues on this track, then definitely those last 1-2 months are going to be brutal. I’m 18 weeks, and still sick daily :

How about the first couple months of pregnancy? For me, working through that has been a million times tougher than the month leading up to my wedding! I have such bad morning sickness, so I feel naseous constantly and throw up at least a few times at work. And I have to act like I’m fine because I’m not far along enough to tell people. Plus I can never sit down, I’m on my feet all day at my job. Wedding planning, yeah there were stressful days (like the officiant having to bail two weeks before!), but it wasn’t a 24/7 thing like morning sickness has been so far.

I’m not there yet, but my friend at work is 38 weeks.  For the past couple of weeks, she has been absolutely miserable at work.  She says she can’t focus on anything, is exhausted, has heart burn and Braxton Hicks contractions, and spends most of her day trying not to huff and puff and moan out loud. Also, she finds it increadibly hard to sit at her desk because she is so uncomfortable.  I think this beats wedding planning.
