Now perhaps I can share some news seeing as it's so close for those of you who don't venture out of the wedding part of the forum... FH and I started trying to conceive bub #1 in December last year (we figured I wouldnt be showing in my dress really and we wanted to be pg straight away when married.. some people it takes a while so we began) and sure enough January cycle (conception in feb) we fell pregnant
So now I am 8 weeks on friday just before our big day and only family and bridal party know - I fooled everyone at my hens by having fake jelly shots (while theirs were real) and coordinating with the bar tender to make me fake drinks. I'm not showing as I'm so early on so the dress is still perfect and we have everything set for travelling for honeymoon (i had the shots last year etc). Our ultrasound confirmed a normal heartbeat and development so we are going to do ahead and announce it as part of Fhs wedding speech. Before you panick, we realise there is a very small chance of miscarriage until 12 weeks but trust that we'd have the support of friends during that time as it's not a massive wedding with everyone we know just our good good friends and I would hate to tell people why I was so upset in the weeks after.. but back to the positive.. yay! It's kind of nice that it's been our little secret and will be until just before our first dance. hehe.
Can't wait for sunday !

I would not stress about telling people early. 12 weeks is not a safety net anyway. We had friends just wait until they were 12 weeks to announce it and unfortunately a week later she started bleeding alot and is not sure if its going to be ok or not yet. Your a bit like us. We told people early as we figured if we lost the baby we would tell people anyway. Its nice to have the support. That being said, Im sure everything is going to be great and it will make your day even more special (if thats possible)
