loz24 : that’s a HUGE comfort.. I have heard, and its been ringing through my head, most parents i know rarely felt “ready”.. So very true. And you hit the nail on the head: I’m so lost on how planning goes. Unlike a lot of my friends, I never really thought about how my wedding would go. So all of this is so brand new. Google has been my best friend ❤

This is a lot for anyone to work through. We had been trying for 8 months, had a chemical pregnancy, and the next month we were pregnant again. We both have steady jobs, are in our 30’s, have been married for 4 years, and I still felt completely overwhelmed. I don’t think anyone is ever really ready – even when you’re by the book “ready.” I recommend picking your priorities (likely getting a job and taking care of your (and baby’s health) and then letting everything else follow. Lots of options for weddings – now, postponed, simple courthouse wedding, big informal party, or a big ass wedding in the future. A wedding can be an amazing thing, but it is one day. Your baby and your family are the rest of your life. Life happens. The 1st trimester can be rough – like the world’s worst hangover that doesn’t go away for 3 months. Focus on you and and what you really want and need – and be easy on yourself.
