I picked up a prenatal vitiamin and started taking it today. I also told my mom today, so my entire family knows except my dad (hes out of state currently) I think we’re going to wait to tell his mom until after the wedding because she will freak out and I don’t need any added stress so close to the wedding. I’m not worried about looking pregnant at the wedding because I’m a plus size girl. I probably won’t show for a while yet.
I got my bloodwork done yesterday and they said to schedule an ultrasound to see how far along I am. They also set up my first appointment with my doctor.
I was pretty nervous to tell my mom but she told me we’ll have a lot to figure out and it’ll be hard but it’ll be okay. She took it way better than I expected.

@Sunshine1011: were getting married in January an just found out were pregnant. My parents are actually very excited. You won’t have many dr visits between now and then. Probably two tops. You can always get an abortion if you really aren’t ready.

@Ninteenthchance: Yeah I have one set up for the end of sept. & I don’t think we’re ready but we’ll be okay. I don’t believe in abortion for myself. We both have decent paying jobs that are stable. Theres a lot we’re not going to be ready for but I guess we’ll learn as we go.

@Sunshine1011: Congrats on the positive response!
I’m sure your grandparents will be thrilled to have a “premature honeymoon baby” (which was code for “knocked up before the wedding” when it was still a BIG deal. Most of the women in my family had one!)

If you don’t want to be pregnant, you don’t have to be pregnant. Honestly, I think it’d be smart to wait 5 years, given how young you are. Do what you feel is best for your situation!

@MexiPino: This is a great idea! Announce during the wedding! That way no one will be able to get mad! 🙂

@crayfish: It may have been smart to wait 5 years but I won’t get rid of my baby. No matter how stressed, freaked out or how much I think we’re not ready I wouldn’t be able to do it. It’s not that I think it’s wrong, its that I think it’s wrong for me.

I found out I was pregnant a week ago. 2 Weeks before my wedding. After a small panic, I realised that everything was going to be ok. But we are a bit older (24 and 29) We planned to ‘try’ after our official honeymoon in January, but were on our first cycle of KIND OF NTNP. I was mostly shocked it happened so fast. We will be telling our parents the weekend after our wedding. It also happens to be my mom’s birthday.
Glad your mom reacted well and is going to support you! It always makes things easier to have a loving mother.

@Sunshine1011: congrats!! Don’t worry about dr appointments, you only have 1 per month starting at 8 weeks (until your 3rd trimester). Just relax, start talking prenatals and eating healthy while you can and enjoy weddin planning. You’ll have plenty of time to stress and worry when that’s all over. Good luck!

I got an ultrasound to figure out how far along I am last wednesday, I’m 8 weeks today meaning I’ll be almost 12 weeks at the wedding. We told his mom and she didn’t freak out. She did tell me that I’m only in my first trimester and we don’t know if this is going to be a successful pregnancy. I guess it’s better than some responses she could have.
It’s had time to set in and I’m not freaking out as much. I’ll still have a ways to go to be excited about it. I’m sure that’ll come when I feel the baby move.
It has been really hard to continue to focus on the wedding though, my energy levels have been really low. All I want to do is sleep. My morning sickness is really bad too.
Any tips from pregnant brides to make it through the last few weeks before the wedding?

@Sunshine1011: I just married last saturday and I was 17 weeks pregnant and also 21! Everyone knew already and was happy about it.
I was trying so hard to plan the perfect wedding and then when I got pregnant I found the details didn’t matter so much any more. I just worried about the big stuff…like not fainting or puking in my dress (which I did anyway. I will be sure to cross my fingers you won’t!)
Honestly things always have a way of working out. Take it easy and take care of yourself.

And watch the dress!
I originally had a fit and flare… by 8 weeks it was snug, by 12 it wouldn’t close. And I wasn’t even showing…unless you count the new boobs.
I ended up at 12 weeks running to david’s bridal and buying an empire wasted dress. Even that barely fit. LOL

We just had a baby shower Saturday for my cousin who is due at Christmas and is getting married “Sometime between now and the end of October.” Her mom and grandma were both furious with her, but came and were happy and got her nice gifts. Everyone will come around, its not the baby’s fault!

@Sunshine1011: congrats! Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans 🙂
You’ll have to deal with his family and their judgement for the rest of your life, so I’d just tell them and get it over with, I mean its not like you don’t plan on getting married, so they’ll just have to suck it up and get over themselves lol

- Wedding: September 2013 - Lake Anna Winery
I just found out a couple weeks ago that I’m pregnant and I’m 7 weeks now!
Our wedding is this weekend and trying to suck in this bump/bloat is going to be hard, but I wouldn’t have it any other way now!
