So FI and I are getting married in 3.5 months (eeeeeeek!!!) and are going to start TTC right after the wedding. My period this month is currently 5 days late, and started wondering today “what if?”
Well I just took a pregnancy test and got my BFN. I think deep down I knew I wasn’t pregnant, work has been really stressful this month and wedding planning is getting to the point where it’s just not fun anymore, so stress could be the culprit for the lateness. But, I’m a little sad I’m not KU. I know it will happen when it’s meant to, but I just feel bummed. Anyone else have this happen before?

I can’t relate since this is my first cycle off BC and we are NTNP, but you will get that BFP in time.
I don’t know your situation, but if it were me I wouldn’t be too upset about it happening 3.5 months away from the wedding. I assume you already have your dress and its altered. granted stuff like that can be changed, but that would just add even more stress onto all the stuff you’re already dealing with. Enjoy this time and your wedding 🙂

Oh yes! We went off BC in December even though our wedding isn’t until April of next year. A month or two before that though, I had a late period and thought maybe… but wasn’t and was really disappointed. It’s totally natural, I think. Enjoy this time!!!! You’ll have plenty of time to make babies after the wedding. 🙂 🙂

I totally get it. I’ve had this happen twice, actually. We weren’t really ready yet, but when I thought it was a possibility, I realized that I wouldn’t be disappointed (actually, I’d be excited) if I ended up pregnant. I think that’s the moment when you realize that you’re ready for that change when it does come. Be patient, and it’ll happen when you’re totally ready 🙂

When my HS/college boyfriend and I started having sex, I wasn’t on the pill. Unfortunately, it was also when my cycle started to deviate from being uber reliable to totally wonky. One time, there was a condom malfunction, and it coincided with a cycle that went weeks longer than normal. I POAS twice on his insistence, and both were BFN. At the time we were both still in college, and we had no plans of getting married or anything. We grew up in a very conservative and religious area. Basically, being pregnant would have been the worst thing that could happen between us at that time.
All of that being said, my heart was still a little hurt when I saw the BFNs. I wasn’t anywhere near the place where you are now, and there was still that little twinge of disappointment. I think that the very idea that there might be a ball of someone else’s cells growing inside of you can trigger hope and excitement in the part of your heart and soul that has always wanted kids. Even when you are so totally far away from being ready.

@HisMoon: Thanks, bees!!! Glad to know I’m not the only one 🙂
disappointment was eased tonight after my darling FI was able to upgrade our hotel and disney dining plan for the honeymoon! Perhaps we will come home as three?
