Well…..I am sure I am not the only person to go through this, but I need some serious advice/support. My Wedding date is less than seven months away after a 15 month engagement, and I just found out I am pregnant. My fiance wants to push the Wedding back to 2013, and he is super excited for the baby.
I feel like when we tell our families they will be so disappointed that this happened before the Wedding, especially since I have made this Wedding a REALLY big deal. The baby is definitely a blessing, and we planned on TTC after the Wedding, we just got a little surprise early.
Should we tell our families now, its still really early along? Super stressed ….

Baby would be due three weeks after the Wedding, and our Wedding is out of state. I feel like we are “going to be in trouble” when we tell everyone lol …

First of all CONGRATS!
I am on the side of your fiance. Three weeks is cutting it way too close. If your baby is born late, like most first timers, then you may be one week out from baby. I would hold on to your deposits and asked to be moved until at least 3 or 4 months from baby’s due date.
But then again, I wouldn’t do anything (except for telling your parents) until you hit your 3 or 4 month mark.

Congrats! This is really a happy thing, if you think about it. The timing is off, but you’re going to have a baby which is exciting! 🙂
I would tell the people who need to know. They may be more excited than you think. I’d wait to push deadlines back until you know everything is in the clear and then I’d push ’em back to give you guys a bit more time to adjust. Or, you could move things ahead and get married a bit earlier than planned?

@ohmybears48: Agree with everything you said.

Considering that you’re due date is a few weeks after your wedding date, I would definitely reschedule. Either schedule it for a month or two earlier or later. Not to worry you, but pregnancies are so uncertain. You may be put on bed rest or the baby could arrive early. Do yourself a favor and save yourself from stress and worry…reschedule! Congrats and have a great pregnancy!

I reccomend just pushing the date sooner or later.
I know it may be a bit of a big deal to your family, but they will get over it and be happy for you! Just come out and be honest-they may be able to help you 🙂
Oh and congratulations!!!!!

Congrats! That is very exciting, although I’m sure a bit stressful timing! You may have to scale back from your original plans, but I think moving up your wedding date is a good option (one of several good options). The reason I suggest that is because you obviously want to be married and, once a baby comes along, there will probably be new, more pressing expenses and the wedding may continue to get postponed. I’m sure you’ll have a few shocked family members, but once they warm up to the idea, I am sure everyone is going to be thrilled!

Can you push the date up instead of back? Get married in July or August?

First off – Congrats!
IMO, your due date is cutting it a bit close to the wedding date so I would recommend changing it. But I would personally push it earlier (June/July/August if possible). That way once the baby is here – you’ll already be husband and wife and won’t have to try to wedding plan while raising an infant.

Congrats! I would also recommend pushing the wedding forward or back…I have a friend who just delivered her baby at 31 weeks. Both mommy and baby are fine, but it was a very unexpected surprise. Technically, baby can come at any time after 38 weeks so there’s not a lot of wiggle room with your wedding date.
Definitely move it and congrats again!
