leesahmarie :  I wouldn’t stress just yet. 

I wasn’t on the pill for years but I found that my period would fluctuate sometimes. It is possible it’s just stress, what you’ve been eating, working out, etc. There are a million reasons you could be a little late.

The only way you will know is by taking a test.

If you’ve been taking your pills properly (every day around the same time) then it’s highly unlikely you’re pregnant. I’d take a test now to ease your mind…if it’s negative and your period still doesn’t show up for another week, take another test.

leesahmarie :  not too early to test. Try not to worry until you can take the test. Stay away from blue dyes, but the dollar store tests are really good.

Definitely get the pregnancy test. It won’t be too soon for one of the ones geared toward early results. It’s unlikely you’re pregnant, but test away or you’ll be nervous for days. 

But Bee, either way, I think you’re going to be just fine! Pregnant or not, just keep exercising and eating healthy, and if you are pregnant, unless your dress is unusually tight in the midriff, you likely won’t be showing enough by your wedding for it to make a ton of difference in the fit of the dress.

It may be a little soon to be expecting a little one in your opinion, but if it were me, I would love to see everyone’s faces if I were to do the baby announcement *at the wedding*. I know, I know… I’m a pot-stirrer. 😉

It could just be stress. I was so stressed once my period was 13 days late and I wasn’t sexually active during that time. But I’m wondering if you missed any pills or were late taking one or were on any antibiotics or anything like that which could’ve decreased its effectiveness. If you were diligent about taking the pill at the same time every day then I’m guessing it’s just due to stress. I would just take a test, get a reliable one like a First Response Early Results test to be sure.

I don’t think you would need a new dress if you are pregnant. I’m currently 2 months along and look the same other than a little bloat which could be hidden with some shapewear.

When I was about 3 months out from my wedding, my period was 6 days late.. even though I didn’t feel stressed, I still was and that was the cause of my late period.. maybe it’s the same for you?  You may not feel stressed but planning a wedding does add a stress none the less

I was on BCP for years and at a certain point I stopped having withdrawl bleeding when I was on the “free week.”  That could be happening to you.

I would test first and panic after haha, let us know how the test comes back! If you are pregnant it’ll be absolutley fine, you may not even have to change your dress at all as most people dont ‘show’ until 4 months and your honeymoon could double up as a baby-moon! Xx

leesahmarie :  Honestly I think it would be awesome if you were! I was just thinking it over the other day and realized it would actually be pretty fun to hide it from everyone including all family, then at the wedding when you start the reception and stand up with your new husband to thank people for coming, you announce to everyone that a baby will be joining your family in X month. So fun! Doesn’t have to be a negative. I was even wondering to myself if they made wedding dresses with a detachable skirt so you could hide a bump, then reveal it after announcing at the reception by removing the skirt and having a tighter dress underneath.

leesahmarie : I wouldn’t start freaking out until you know for sure! But if you do end up being pregnant, (you never know) you may not be showing a whole lot by three months anyway. Not a big deal in my opinion! Although it doesn’t really matter either way. I know a bride who was around 6 months along when she got married and she looked BEAUTIFUL and glowing. I think pregnant brides are gorgeous 🙂 Are you more concerned about showing or about getting pregnant before your wedding?

How exciting!! I’d test ASAP if I were you, so you know to start taking prenatals and adjust your diet as necessary. It shouldn’t affect your wedding day but could throw a wrench in your honeymoon plans. You probably wouldn’t want to go anywhere where you could be exposed to Zika (including Mexico) if you’re pregnant.
