I thought about it, but realized I want to drink during my honeymoon.   If drinking is not important to you and your fiance/husband, go for it.

I am! We were planning on waiting a few months just so life could go back to normal after the wedding craziness, but life doesn’t always work out that way!

I’m 33 so I thought for sure it would take a while for it to happen, I still can’t believe it happened literally the first try!

Just heard the heartbeat for the first time last week. Smile

I’m pregnant with a honeymoon baby! πŸ™‚ We bought a house over 2 years ago (with lots of room to spare) and are financially ready, even after the wedding which is a small miracle thanks to very generous family and friends so a little while before the wedding we decided we would try right away. I was able to drink at my wedding and immediately after on vacation because I knew when to expect ovulation. I charted for about 4 months before we TTC, and low and behold we got pregnant the first cycle. I honestly think that charting really helped me. Obviously the stars were also aligned because even with perfect timing nothing is ever guaranteed.

Your plan sounds lovely! And congrats on the news about home ownership!

@peachacid:  I want to drink like a fish on mine. So screw trying… well rather yes we will be screwing but not baby making screwing.

We have an accidental honeymoon baby.  I was charting, but with all the stress of the wedding and actually going on the honeymoon (there was passport drama), I wasn’t sleeping well and stuff got wacky.  Needless to say, I”m 33 weeks pregnant now!  I did drink some on our honeymoon, but baby is fine.  When we found out, we decided it was time to buy a house, so here we are!  We closed at the end of June.  πŸ™‚

We’re having one as well!  We weren’t planning on it yet, and our honeymoon was at an all inclusive resort, so needless to say, a lot of alcohol was imbibed.  Thankfully, Baby is fine at 32 weeks!

we wanted one. we even scheduled the wedding/honeymoon trip along my cycle (though we were quite ignorant then… we knew my menstrual cycle, but not my ovulation cycle). we didn’t get it, obviously…. but we had fun trying.

I was ovulating (according to the online calculator) on our honeymoon- which was last month. And we really did try, but no success. Also as far as drinking goes I read that the first week is really no big deal… as they put it many babies are conceived when people are drunk! So I didn’t worry about not drinking on my honeymoon- which was only a week long anyway. This is our second month trying and I got my BFP yesterday!

We don’t drink, so that isn’t a concern at all. But yes, I’d love to have a honeymoon baby.

I would have loved one, though we’ve (DH) decided to wait six months / a year. Drinking on honeymoon was a plus though. Also, you should consider any meds you need to take (eg malaria tablets) and bring sickness tablets with you. I ended up getting some in Asia (not in English) which were harmful to take whilst pregnant in first trimester, hence I’d be extra prepared if you are trying and going somewhere really remote.


Good luck with the house purchase and move, and happy wedding planning πŸ™‚
