I have been lurking for months and I think today is the perfect time to make my make my first post.
I have been planning my Oct wedding like a mad woman…deposits have been paid, honeymoon booked, wedding dress ordered, invites ordered, etc..
I have been sick with what I thought was the flu for the last week or so and went to see my general doctor. He took a urine test since I complained of nausea…..I AM pregnant and likely due in early December based on the date of my last period. OMG! I am ecstatic and scared!
My Fiance is working a late shift today and won’t be home til 1am..I didn’t want to call or email him at work with this big news so I need to tell him when he gets home!
We have been together for 2 and a half years and we have been engaged since New Years Day…we both definitely want kids but our plan was to wait a yr after marriage. But sometimes life doesn’t go as planned…
I am stressing about possibly changing the wedding date, dealing witn my venue/vendors in case i need to change the date or postpone, to my FI’s reaction(i think he will be OK just shocked), telling our parents, and friends….and potentially walking down the aisle 7 months prego. yikes!
Ok, i just wanted to share!! Does anyone have any advice? Has anyone had to reschedule their wedding? Thanks for listening!

Next, take a deep breath. Take this step by step. Right now, all you need to focus on is you & your Fiance. Give yourself permission to NOT worry about wedding details just yet. Settle into realizing you’re going to be a parent, THEN tackle the practical details from cribs to wedding dresses.

Congrats! I actually just saw a “Say Yes to the Dress” the other day where a girl was 7 months pregnant and getting married. Her dress was very pretty, so don’t worry about that! Life doesn’t go as planned but there wouldn’t be any fun surprises if it did.

Congrats!!! I agree, just relax and let it all sink in, and pick up some prenatal vitamins. 🙂
You can deal with the details in a few days. With your first pregnancy, you probably won’t be really showing until 5 months, and even then you could wear a flowy dress and probably still not be able to tell!

Congrats! Babies are always great news! 🙂 Update us about how your Fiance reacted once you’ve told him!

Wow! So many big things happening in your life! But wonderful things!!! Take the time to let it all sink in and worry about the wedding later, you have plenty of time to figure it all out and rearrange if necessary…and Congratulations!!! 🙂

Hi! When he got home…I just started tearing up and spilled the beans. He was shocked but very happy!!! He made some silly comment about how “his boys” can swim. LOL!
Our first concern is how to break the news gently to our SUPER traditional parents…
I also called my venue and spoke to the coordinator about possibly pushing up or postponing the wedding….she is looking into some options and will call me back tomorrow!

Congrats! I was in a similar situation, due in about a month and got married in early March. While I had a few pity parties along the way about maybe not having the dress I had envisioned or typical bachelorhette party, it was not the end of the world being about 7 months pregnant and getting married. I really liked that the day represented becoming a family. There was not a dry eye in the house when we read our vows and promised to each other to be the best parents and partners we could be and there was laughter all around when our officiant said that marriage would bring surprises. I loved that our little guy was with us, and I enjoyed the day so much I didn’t think once about not having a campaign toast. I wouldn’t change our decision, it really helped keep the whole wedding thing in prespecitve, not to get too stressed out because it wasn’t healthy for our baby, and now we’re excited to meet our little guy.

I’m glad you are talking to your co-ordinator. Maybe you won’t lose your deposits if you still use the same services, just on a different date. It will all work out. I actually felt really good at 7 months pregnant, my nausea was gone, I was still sleeping decently, and still had energy.

I don’t have advice, just wanted to wish you many blessings on your future. May marriage and parenthood be everything you’ve dreamt it to be!

Congrats!!!This is great news. And I dont think you need to stress about moving the date or whatever. You have already made deposits etc and lots of girls get married pregnant. Best of luck!!!

Thanks so much! I love the support on Weddingbee.
I told my parents and my mom was soooo supportive and loving. I guess I was expecting anger and disappointment but she was very calm and gave me a lot of tips about pregnancy. But my Dad was quiet and looked a little disppointed. My mom later told me he was sad because he didn’t want CONFIRMATION that i was “having relations” with anyone! She told me not to worry and he will come around!
I think i will try to move it up. The venue has a couple of dates in the summer that might work. I will have to check with the VIP Family guests, bridal party, vendors.
next up is Future Mother-In-Law & FFIL! My Fiance is 34 and I am 30 but Future Mother-In-Law treats us like we are 14….this talk will be interesting!

I don’t have advice, but I wanted to congratulate you! I can’t imagine how excited/scared/anxious you must feel!
