There's a kink in my TTC plan...

Ugh! I don't want to come off as selfish but I am really disappointed.

This is our 3rd cycle TTC. Our whole family knows we are trying. My little brother just proposed to his girlfriend a couple weeks ago. She said yes! They decided they are getting married in Mexico (double yes!) and were talking about July of next year. I figured if I didn't get pregnant this cycle wed need to TAB for a few months so I didn't have a new, new baby (or be close to due date) while in Mexico.

Just got a text from my sis- my brother and his fiance have now set the date and its May 22.

If I got pregnant this cycle I'd be due May 20 I think I am going to O today, DTD last night, planned on it today, am all excited, and now I feel like I can't. I am really upset and feel like I'm gonna just lose it and cry. I have to be there for my brother (don't get me wrong, I want to!) it's just really really bad timing!

Some things you just can't control.If your attempt last night was a success,then I'm sure your family will be understanding if you can't make it to the wedding(there will be 2 new additions to the family).Maybe even throw a welcome baby/Congrats party when they get back from their honeymoon.I'm sure they will be more than understanding if you're not able to fly to Mexico because of the baby.

I'd think of myself and just say "If I'm preggos I'm not coming to your wedding." Your baby would have occured first.
We planned our wedding, let everyone know, and then 2 months later my brother and his fiance planned their wedding 2 weeks prior to ours, in the same city (vegas)
Yes, still BEEF to this day.

The bottom line is, you don't want to have your baby in Mexico, they should understand that.

Re: There's a kink in my TTC plan...

Thanks for the replies. I talked to my mom about it and she said- "watch, now that your needing to TAB you'll be pregnant!" I laughed.

Really there is nothing I can do. I am hoping to be pregnant but that means I wont be able to attend his wedding, which is sad. Trying not to get all worked up about it- theres nothing I can do and if it doesn't happen this month we will TAB for a couple months.

Re: There's a kink in my TTC plan...

I have friend who for this very same reason decided to back off on trying to get pregnant. Her husbands brother is to be married next May too and she didn't want to have a new born plus her older child who just turned 2 at a wedding. She knew she would be helping and her husband would probably be the best man. To much going on. She is cool with waiting tho.

I totally agree! I also can see that there would be a beef there!

I don't think I'd TAB. I would just keep trying, and whatever happens, happens.
