- Wedding: November 2010
I had a honeymoon baby. We actually were pretty freaked out even though we wanted a baby. We didn’t think it would happen that soon. It took us about 10 weeks to adjust and we didn’t tell anyone until well into the second trimester. By then we were legitimately excited and knew the little lemon was planning on sticking around!
I was pretty freaked out and wanted time to get used to the idea. Also our first screening blood work showed an elevated risk for some chromosomal abnormalities– one of which is near uniformly fatal… we waited until we got chromosomes back and until I was ready for the onslaught of comments, “Oh wow, honeymoon baby…” blah blah blah!
It was a special time for Mr. DG and I where we felt like we had this giant secret. I told a few friends at 13 weeks and most everyone else around 20 weeks. At that point people were going to know soon anyway so I started telling!
No one suspected as far as I know…
Congrats what great news! I hope it all works out for you.
I wanted to give you my thoughts on waiting until the second trimester to tell everyone. This is just my opinon. =)
I am not pregnant yet and I can imagine it would be absolute torture to wait to tell everyone but my fiancee and I have already talked about it and when we get pregnant we want to wait until the second trimester to tell everyone.
We’ve seen too many friends and family tell everyone and then lose the baby due to extraneous circumstances. I know I couldn’t look everyone in the eye at that point because they’d be trying to be sympathetic but sometimes you just want to get on with life and don’t want people bringing up your problems over and over again. Those are just my 2 cents on the issue and they are based on how I deal with difficult situations. =)
Congrats if you are 🙂
One of my friends had a honeymoon baby, it was a bit rough on them because they were hoping to find a bigger place before they had their first and her husband lost his job around the same time they found out. However, they moved into their new place and were squared away financially before the baby came.
So long as you are financially stable and mentally prepared who cares if it happens right after the wedding on years later? 🙂
We had a wedding night/honeymoon baby!!!
However, we had three kids together previous to getting married, so there was no big adjustment from newlyweds to parents since we’d been together for 10 years before hitting the altar!
I consider myself to be having a honeymoon baby. Married at the courthouse on 9/21, got knocked up on 10/16, and have our destination wedding on 11/5 with a baby in my belly- haha. We were/are shocked, but excited. This was definitely not planned.
I’m 10 weeks and we’ve told our parents and siblings just this week. I’ll tell the rest of the family whenever I feel comfortable, probably around the end of the month, early January when I hit my second trimester.
We didn’t go on a honeymoon because of DH’s schedule, but found out we were 6 weeks pregnant about 8 weeks after our wedding! We were trying, but not that hard. More just seeing what would happen. We were both super excited and had no idea it’d work that fast. There was no way we could keep it in, and we told our immediate families almost immediately.
A former colleague of mine had a “honeymoon baby” but I suspect they actually concieved a month or so prior to the wedding and didn’t want to admit it to his conservative family. They waited a couple of months to tell people.
I was a honeymoon baby, half way in to it apparently. My mum didn’t think it would happen so soon.
I got married in June 19 and my baby is due March 15. Almost exactly nine months! I found out when I was four weeks and I pretty much told everyone the next day. It wasn’t planned, but we were being a little careless-I was still shocked though!
Everyone was excited. Of course there were stupid honeymoon baby jokes made but if you can ignore them it will be a very fun and exciting time. Until you have morning sickness.
We’re having a honeymoon baby !!!
We were married on 10/10/10 and i am now due July 18 🙂
So excitting !
I went off BCP the week before the wedding… thinking that we had lots of time…At least 6 months … but Alas… tis not the case 🙂
Congrats to all the honeymoon baby moms-to-be! When it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. =0) And I feel like there’s definitely something extra special about conceiving on your honeymoon. Wish you all the very best!
And thank you everyone for the great advice. It’s a great idea to wait to tell people but I don’t think we’d be able to pull that one off. =0/
His family always does a big shindig for New Years and they would definitely notice if I wasn’t drinking.
They’ve already found time to annoy us with baby talk so give them any reason to gossip and they will. lol
@Mrs. DG: “‘Oh wow, honeymoon baby…’ blah blah blah!” lol. I love it. I feel like I would have the exact same feelings to everyone’s comments.
@Rubies: That’s the same situation we’re in too. Trying to move out and get our finances straight and with a baby there is definitely more pressure to do that. But I definitely think we can do it and knowing that others have done it too is definitely reassuring.
