    I've been married twice. The first time I was very young and was 22 weeks pregnant. I had a bit of a rough pregnancy and didn't enjoy that day much at all.
    Second time my 5th baby was 7 months old. Even though I was a bit bigger than my usual self I had a much better time. It was a backyard wedding.
    If I were you, I would keep trying and plan my wedding at the same time.
    I think it could work with a bit of planning and budgeting and possibly being flexible on the date a little in case you end up due when you want to get married.
    I think you will regret holding off a year.
    It's a pretty long time.
    As for being certain weights etc for weddings I'm not into it. Be yourself. You will be beautiful regardless of the dress size and you will look back on it happily if you are happy on the day. Jmo. Good luck 🙂

    With my first wedding I should have been pregnant but my daughter decided that she would come early. So she was born at 11:12am and I got married at 4:30pm.

    My new partner and I have started ttc in January, I think my partner might be proposing this weekend going by a few things he has said and he wants his and my kids all together
    So I could hopefully be pregnant or with a new born. I am not sacrificing the chance to have a baby as we are both older (I'm 38 this year and my partner is 42)

    Wow @wishingnhoping that is VERY impressive that you made it to the wedding! Sounds like your daughter wanted to be part of it all!! That is amazing. Did you actually leave hospital and go to the wedding venue or just have a small ceremony at the hospital?

    And good luck for this weekend, sounds very exciting.

    I actually left the hospital and got married at the chapel we were meant to. As the chaplin that married us was a friend and could only perform the wedding there.
    I do remember simething in the vows about bringing children into the marriage and I started laughing as I thought oops to late for that. My step dad then telling me very sternly "this is serious you know". Of course that just made me laugh more lol.

    I was 7 months pregnant when I got married and the only negative thing I can say about my day was by 9pm I was ready for bed when everyone else was just starting to party!! We did things a little different though and had a very small afternoon ceremony with immediate family only and an early (5:30) sit down dinner with just those people. Everyone else was invited to a cocktail party that started at 7pm and we did speeches and the cutting of the cake then. It really was a great day and being pregnant made it no different to how we would have done it anyway.

    I didn't go with a traditional dress as it was just too hard to deal with the ever growing belly so went to Swish (check them out online) and found this one, it was so comfy.

    @Happymum2 wow that's a great idea of breaking up the wedding & doing it that way. I like that idea!!!

    Also love your dress, you seem just as relaxed about everything as I hope to be.
    The more I plan for the wedding & we chat about it, the more we think it's just a night to celebrate us with family and friends, and if we have an extra little person or one on the way then that's great, and if we try for the next 12 months and still don't succeed well we know where we stand & haven't lost anything.

    We put off trying for our 3rd and final baby until after we were married (we had 2 kids before we got engaged) unfortunately we will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary this year and still haven't been able to complete our family (I had a few medical issues in the months after I was married which I beleive has affected my fertility) My husband wanted to have the 3rd baby and then set the date for wedding but I said No I wanted to 1 after I was married and we only wanted 3. I wish I had agreed with him now, but hindsight is a wonderful thing isn't it.

    I was 6 weeks pregnant with my second on my wedding day. It totally wasnt planned that way...we were going to start trying on the honeynoon.

    I thought the same thing in the lead up to the wedding...but i still had the most incredible day of my life...and no hangover the next day.
    The only crumby thing was there was no sex on our wedding night and very little on our honeynoon (im not interested when im pregnant). On our 5th anniversary though we had another honeymoon which made up for that (wink wink).

    I wouldn't wait to TTC. Whatever happens you can make it work. I had a 6 month old at our wedding. Was still fabulous

    I was 32wks preg when we got married!

    We got engaged and booked in ceremony, reception...paid deposits etc.
    Then the week of our engagement party found out i was pregnant.

    We thought about postponing but decided to go ahead as planned.

    As much as i enjoyed our wedding i do wish we'd brought it forward, postponed or even just downsized & simplified

    It was just too much for a pregnant lady in her 3rd trimester.

    I was too tired to enjoy socialising at the reception after such a big day
