WWYD? Weddings and TTCing . . .

Okay ladies, this is probably going to be long.

So, me and DH are currently TTCing, but obviously with BFing my cycle is still very erratic--I'm currently on CD 38 and not even sure I O'd yet.

Agreeing with everyone else on 3 or 4 here.

But, I'm amused, as the wedding I'm worried about planning around next July is in SF and we were also thinking of combining it with a Yosemite trip :)

If it were me, I would go with #4.

I agree with the girls, keep trying, and then you can adjust as circumstances present themselves. But if going to the wedding is REALLY important, you could switch to NPP instead of actively TTC.

Oh, and Jamie is right, the Yosemite trip sounds like such a fun trip to do in a few years when your kids can participate actively, so you see, the wait could be a benefit for James.

I agree with everyone else... And I think that's probably what you have decided to do anyway after writing your post? You can't plan when to fall pregnant, and there is always something coming up; weddings, birthdays, trips... Just go ahead and things will work out!

I will second *exactly* what Alyssa said, Adrienne. Just do it and see what happens and deal with the situation when the time comes... it will all work out!

Adrienne, if this situation was my own, I would follow the advice that many have shared. I would not put off TTC. I wouldn't mind traveling with a small baby (just did that!), and I would travel while pregnant (when medically safe).

HOWEVER, only you know how heart broken you would be to miss your cousin's wedding. I imagine that your cousin would understand and be happy for you, but it sounds to me like YOU would be upset...not the cousin. That's a very real thing! You don't have to ignore those feelings.

I hope that you can find a solution that works for everyone involved. Good luck!

I agree with some of the others on the fact that you can't put your life on hold due to other things. Doubled with all the issues you had getting and staying prego with James I could see continuing to try. Though you might get surprised and it happen really easy for the second one. :) Maybe you should just step back and make it more of a NPP instead of TTC during that time and then just see what happens.

I also agree that traveling with the smaller ones is easier. Even more so when flying. Simon was so eay at 5 months when we went to AR. There are also lots of other things that could arrise and keep you from being able to go to a wedding or other event. I would just keep at it and see what happens. I know its hard to miss things, I missed my baby brothers wedding due to work. Good luck and let us know what you decide.

The funny thing was we decided to stop putting things off and we planned a trip to Las Vegas with our friends. I got pregnant and so did a friend of mine shortly before the trip. LOL At least I had a morning sickness buddy on the trip!

I would go with number 4. LOL I hate the idea of stopping TTC once I start it. It would really suck to miss the wedding. But I have put off so many things in my life because I might get pregnant. Then it took me years to get pregnant with Wyatt. I wasted so much time worrying about what might happen. Just go with the flow and see where things end up in the end.
