I just don't know what to do. I haven't had the scan yet so I could be out by a week or 2 but this will be my 4th so i don't usually stray too far from the EDD anyway.
So I'll either be like a tent or have a bub stuck to me boob. and I don't think the bride is goint to be very happy.
Should I offer to bow out now or should I not even tell her until after the scan.
BTW we are due to go for one last look at BM dresses in a couple of weeks and I dont know when I'm going to get the scan
Help I'm freaking out
I'm not sure if this is the correct section to post this is, so mods feel free to bump if you need to.
I am Maid of Honour for a bride who was my BM at my wedding. She asked me last January.
No problems, I am enoying all the hype and dres shopping etc. and planning that goes with it.
But I discovered over the weekend that I'm pregnant and guess what...??? I'm due (not totally sure but in and around) the week of the wedding.
Be upfront with her now, before the dresses are bought. When you know more about the due date you can update the bride and see how she feels & how you feel. You don't have to make a decision right away but it's only fair to keep her in the loop.
Trust me, take it from someone whose BM bowed out a couple of weeks before the wedding, dress bought & all.
Well firstly, congratulations!! You must be thrilled. That is very exciting news. you must be over the moon!
If your friend is a good true friend which I'm sure she is she will also be thrilled for you! This actually happened me and I was the bride. My bridesmaid found out she was due a few weeks before the wedding and she decided she wouldn't be confident enough in the bridesmaid dress so few weeks after having baby. She is already very body conscious! I was fine with that as I would never want her to be uncomfortable on the day as she is very important to me. Obviously I was disappointed but sure I got over that.
Don't be worried! Just because someone is getting married everyone elses' worlds do not simply stop. I actually can't understand brides who would freak out over that.
Happy out now I can relax and enjoy my pregnancy and hopefully a wedding at the end of it all.
Thanks for the replies.
I spoke to her and shes been great. Silly me thinking I was gona get into trouble for being up the duff!!!
