wedding booked and a late period. rant


Hi I'm pretty new here.
I have always wanted kids and have recently came off the pill (about 3 months ago) to try and let my hormones get back to normal after years of being on the pill. My periods have been bang on 28 days since coming off. We have been using condoms since.
We have been putting off having babies until late next year so we can save some money for a house and get the wedding out of the way and to get another year in at work to further our careers!
I booked my wedding last week for june 2012 and now I'm 5 days late for my period.
Sods law!
Although i'd be thrilled to be pregnant and so would my OH, I'm just not sure how we'd manage it all financially at the moment!
Could it be my hormones since coming off the pill?

I remember that it took some time for my period to regulate after coming off the pill. One month I was 11 days late (negative test). It is possible. Are you under a lot of stress or worried about something? That can cause a late period. If you're concerned, a test should pick it up if you're 5 days late and your dates are right Good luck! I've seen plenty of lovely ladies on here get married while pregnant and they all look beautiful

I'd be getting married in june 2012, so if i was pregnant now I think i'd be due in christmas, so i'd have a 6 month old baby by the wedding, which sounds strange!
maybe it is just the pill, its just so strange how the first few months of coming off it i went straight back into a 28 day cycle. I guess I will just have to wait and see, If i'm not on by monday I'm going to test! Kind of scary, kind of exciting :-)

Oh my word you sound just like me, im also getting married next June and came off BC 2 months ago to let cycles regulate! I know about 3 people that have fallen pregnant about a year before they got married and its worked out really well for them as they are still on Mat leave for the wedding/ honeymoon etc.
If i were you, i would test soonish for peace of mind! Let us know how you get on x

I hope all works out for you. If you are pregnant then you will manage. People do somehow.

Try not to stress too much, have you tested!??
We were TTC for almost a year and fell pregnant 9 months before our wedding (the month we stopped trying) and we managed to have a perfect, amazing wedding with a 12 day old baby, i was stressful with planning and stuff be we did it
So if you do happen to be pregnant you will have a few months to get your head around it all once baby arrives

Thanks guys :-)
Yesterday I found out a little that my work do an additional pay on top of stat maternity pay-which would mean I would almost have full pay for the first 6 months of leave if i was pregnant. After finding this out I was soooo excited and quite hopeful I was pregnant! As I was quite worried because I am paid quite a bit more than my OH, and I know we wouldnt manage dropping just to smp.
Took a test and it was BFN, although I still haven't come on yet. Who knows!
Don't really know what to do now!

Hang in there, test again soon. Those are awesome benefits though - congrats!

It could be anything, a stress-related or other-factor-related delay in period is highly possible, that would always happen to me when I was off the pill. Either way, best of luck and keep us posted! xo

Have you taken a test yet?!! If you are 5 days late, I would go ahead and take one. Cant hurt anything!! As the girls above said, everything happens for a reason. The late period could just be a side affect of coming off your OBC but it could also mean a pregnancy, there is only way to know!!!!

Good luck- cant wait to hear what you find out!!!!!
