First of all, congratulations!  What a blessing that you thought you couldn’t have children, and you were blessed with one.  Why put off the wedding?! If you are ready, and want to, do it!  Who cares if you are 5 or 6 months pregnant, you are happy and it’s YOUR day!

Are you worried about looking pregnant?  Not being able to afford a wedding w baby?

Wow! Congratulations! Is your Fiance excited? Babies tend to do exactly what the parent least expects I guess. I agree with angela – go with your heart. Go through with the wedding if you feel comfortable with it or push it up if you are thinking a smaller wedding.

Congrats again!

@angela2011bride: I agree. You are so close to your wedding date. I would either move it up or keep the same date.

Wow Congrats!   You are very right that you need to leave it in Gods hands. That actually happened to my sister.  Granted she wasn’t as far in to wedding planing as you but but she had met with vendors and picked a date.  They just put off the wedding until the baby was 3 months old.  It was perfect and it was very cool having my nephew there. 

I would check with your vendors and see what your options are as far as pushing your date back.  If you will lose too much money just enjoy your wedding and get a new dress. 

You can always move the wedding up before you start to show.   Don’t worry. Just check out your options and take it day by day.  I also have a few friends who got pregnant in college and took one semester off and was back to graduate.

Congrats!!! I found out that I was pregnant while we were talking about getting engaged. I put it off also (the engagement). For me it was about being able to enjoy the process w/o feeling rushed or added pressure. 

So, I understand why you’d want to put it off. That said, part of me wishes that we were married when I gave birth just because it makes things a lot easier w/ the hospital, insurance, etc.

Breathe, you’ll be FINE! I found out I was pregnant 2 weeks after I started college and managed to make it through all four years! It’s hard, a lot of sleepless nights and staying up till 2 a.m. to get homework done and than get woken up at 3 a.m. by a hungry kiddo.

CONGRATULATIONS! With the help of your Fiance you’ve just created the best thing that will ever happen to you. 5 months out is a while for your wedding.. if you can’t reschedule, get a belly accommodating dress and rock it… you’ll be stunning! Yay for you guys =)

Congrats! If I were you I would try to pay off what you can for the wedding NOW and just push it back until a few months after the baby is born. I myself have the opposite problem. Me and my Fi decided after he proposed and we set our date (which we dont want to move for specific reasons) to try for another. Its months later and still no pregnancy. And our date is set for Sept of next year so we are running out of time. 🙁
