Funny you should mention, because I’ve been having the same paraoid thoughts lately too! A ton of my co workers had babies this year too, so it must just be on the brain. Glad to know I’m not the only one 🙂

I think you are just worried about messing up your wedding plans!  If you are using birth control pills and condoms the possibility that you would get pregnant is so small it’s not even possible to calculate!  Don’t worry about it, it won’t happen!

like missasb said, if youre using proper precautions the chances of getting pregnant are so very slim. when used correctly, birth control pills are 99% effective and condoms are around 97% effective.

Usually the .3% of people that have problems with condoms are the ones who use it wrong.  Just make sure that you are squeezing the tip before you put it on and then rolling it down.  Put it on before any contact occurs between you two and only take it off when you are done and throw it away immediately.  You will be fine!

haha…i thought it was just me.  We got engaged in March 2009 and will be getting married in June 2010.  I started doing calculations in my head like…”It’s April, if I got pregnant, I’d have the baby in January.  I’d have until June to lose the baby wait”.  Repeat for several months.  Now, I think, “Oh no, It’s December, I’ll be 6 months pregnant in June…I couldn’t wear my dress”.  Luckily, the thought has subsided a lot…hopefully it will for you too.

It is very unlikely it will happen but.. to ease your worries a bit on a first pregnancy women usually don’t even start showing until 4 months and so at 5 months you will still be itty bitty and have a beautiful silhouette! But as I said it is very unlikely that it will happen.

Yes definitely!!  Even though I know it’s totally irrational b/c I’m on the pill, I still keep thinking that if I got preggers right now I would be about to pop a baby out on our wedding day.  Definitely not good.  Hopefully I’ll chill out in a few months.  I mean, if you got pregnant 2 or 3 months before your wedding then you wouldn’t even be showing on your wedding day.  I’ve definitely had friends who were in their late 30’s and worried about concieving start trying several months before their wedding day though.  One friend was definitely already pregnant when she got married.  Now she’s 40, has 2 babies, and couldn’t be happier.

I’m on birth control, but for some reason I still get paranoid about it! Like, omg, working so hard to lose weight and look fab on the wedding day…. but what if I get pregnant! Oh well, we’re being safe, so let’s hope we can delay babies a few more years.

I’m so glad I”m not the only one riding this crazy bus!

Everytime something mildly different happens to me that’s right where my mind goes.

Haha, I feel you!  I am not so worried about it now, but earlier in the engagement I was. I actually had my Great-Uncle ask my parents if the reason I was having such a short engagement was because I was pregnant! Lol!  And I have the total paranoia like Scissors said, even though I am on the pill, some months when I am super stressed and my “visitor” comes a few days late, I start freaking out!
