I started by telling him that the year 2009 has been stressful so far (we had family drama on his side and we have both been working too hard and too many hours), but that I know this year will be one of the best because I will get to do the two things that I most want to do in the world: be his wife and have our baby. I told him that I think even though this wasn't our timeline, it clearly was God's timeline and that it has happend for a reason. I showed him the two positive pregnancy tests.
His eyes got wide and he said, "So you're pregnant now?" and I said "yes". Then of course he said it was surprising because I had been on the pill. He then hugged me tight and wouldn't let go.
He then switched gears and starting asking if we should do something else for the wedding because of needing to save up for the baby. For the last few months we had been talking of buying a house, and I think that is where his thought process is in terms of how to take care of us. He did note that we (he and I) are spending more than we thought we would due to subsidizing some things/people at the wedding. I told him that I am sure there are many options available, but that I didn't want to "cheapen" this experience of getting married. I totally think that I would be fine with the plans as they are, assuming that it wouldn't cause any pregnancy complications. Also, and I don't even want to think this right now, but I would hate to cancel our Jamaica wedding and then have something go wrong with the pregnancy. If that were to happen, I would NEED to have that wedding to look forward to.
One thing I do know - I do not want to have a stay at home Pennsylvania wedding. No way.
For those of you who have had this happen, what alternatives did you consider? I have thought of keeping things as is with the four villa rentals at Bluefields Bay, moving the date up at the villas, or cancelling the villa and having a more intimate wedding at the resort where we are honeymooning (Royal Plantation in Jamaica). Given the drama surrounding the wedding already, I think I would be fine with a smaller group of people at the villas, if anything.
There is just so much to consider!
And . . . after the initial conversation about having the baby . . . he then wanted to "get it on" !! Guess that isn't a bad reaction at all!

You know this may be a really reason to make the wedding the same but smaller, ie cut out the ones you don't want there lol There is no way they could whinge especially as you will need to save for the baby lol

I need to keep all my options open, I think.
