So I have planned to go off of birth control right before our wedding and try to get pregnant starting on our honeymoon. My fiance and I have been together for almost 5 years and are ready to start our family. But in the process of getting my body in shape for all the cute honeymoon bikini’s I bought I now kind of want to keep my body the way it is for at least the summer. I am in the best shape of my life and although I want to have a baby as soon as possible, part of me wants to wait so I can have this body for a little while. Is this the most selfish thing ever! I feel really guilty just talking about it!

NO! This isn’t selfish at all. Darling Husband and I decided the same thing, we would start actively TTC on our honeymoon and I figured it would take months if not YEARS to actually get pregnant. When I got the positive test I cried because I had wanted more time to ourselves as a couple before starting a family. Don’t start trying until you’re 10000000% you’re ready in ALL aspects.

@alisonann15: Uh, no…not selfish at all. I’m a great deal overweight and am trying to get into “baby shape.” I know when I get there, I’m going to want to enjoy that body as long as possible. lol

I got pregnant in June and still wore a bikini all summer and didn’t look pregnant at all if that makes you feel better. Plus, I’m glad I’m getting it over with so this summer I can rock the bikini once more! lol.

I think if you got pregnant mid April, you probably could still be in bikinis all summer before you started showing.

I say flaunt it while you got it. I’m in the same boat. Love my body and want to look great on our honeymoon. Would kind of like to put off TTC until during the honeymoon. I agree you should wait until the honeymoon. Even though you might not get pregnant right away you never know.
