 Well for me I got pregnant kinda fast. Like really fast and I have PCOS. We started Not trying not to a month after our wedding (June) and in July I had a positive pregnancy test. If I were you I wouldn’t start trying now. If your wedding is in April theres a chance you could have a positive pregnancy test by the end of December. Thats still 4 months away from your wedding and four months to grow a belly that wont fit in a wedding dress. Plus you will still be in your first trimester at your wedding which is NO FUN! Just a heads up the first trimester is the worst!!!! I didn’t have bad morning sickness but I still felt horrible. Most woman do for the first 14 or so weeks.

 BUT on the other hand some woman take alot longer to get pregnant. You never know until you try. I would wait though until after the wedding. My hubby and I were already parents to our other kid at our wedding. We would of liked some newlywed time though. The only reason why we tried to get pregnant again is because it felt right for us at that time.

EDIT!!! Sorry I think I read your post wrong! So are you trying right now? Or are you going to officially wait until after the wedding? Or wow…I can’t believe how much I read wrong!

I went off the pill a year before we got married. I always had a very very normal cycle. We didn’t get pregnant the entire time (we weren’t trying but NTNT).

The first month after the wedding was the first time we actually tried and I’m 12 weeks pregnant now. I really thought it would take a few months!

Our first month of not trying not to was successful, so be sure you are ready when you stop preventing!

I went off my pill at the end of August and got my BFP a little over a week ago, so it took us 2 cycles.  We decided to not stress, chart, etc until we had been unsuccessul for a few months, whoch led to our BFP! 

I suggest, if you have a smartphone, downloading an app to track your periods.  I have the iPhone and downloaded FemCal Lite.  You can enter your period day by day and it will tell you your supposed fertile days based on the start date, then you can track when you get the BFP, etc.

Good luck!!!!!!

I’ve had two pregnancies, one took 6 months, one took 3. We never did any charting or anything, but if it got to be right around 2 weeks after the beginning of my period, I’d make a bit of an extra effort to up the sexy time.
