Pregnant after a Loss

Best Call Ever!

I actually felt that this call was coming.

Me: Hello?

Bride: is it true?

Me: Excuse me?

Bride: Don't be coy Hedi (the most drawn out version of my short name)

Me: I don't undertsand.

Bride: My mother saw you in the baby department of Nordstrom!  Is it true?  Are you having a  baby?  My wedding is in August!  Are you going to be there?  Should I make other plans?  Is it TRUE??

Me: I don't know what you're talking about.

Bride: (sigh of relief) oh thank god.  I almost freak the *** out!

Me: Yeah, I saw that.  No we're good.

Put out that fire right??? Skills people mad skills.  WTH and I going to do?  I just lied to her FACE with no regard.  I lied to her mom too when she cornered my mom and me at Nordstroms.  crap-I'm actually quite scared of this raging 100 lbs of crazy.

Re: Best Call Ever!

    Are you kidding?  Brides don't give a rats a$$ about your life.  It's the most selfish time of their lives and your the orchestrator.  She could care less.  Given the choice of having the right color Peony and saving the life of a small child she'd pick the Peony EVERY.TIME!

  • I say when you tell her that you fake apologize for lying to her and launch into a long sob story about loss and pregnancy and how you didn't have the heart to believe you would be so lucky... plus, being that her wedding was your top priority (whatever) you knew you'd take care of her....

    Then you press charges against her for being a selfish ho.

  • I'm in a wedding in late July which would put me at 8 months fat.  I think I'm going to volunteer to NOT be in the wedding because I don't think bridezilla will want a whale standing there.  My husband is also in the wedding so idk if he'll be in it after this because she only put me in it to make the number of people even.  

    We're holding off after the first trimester to tell her as well, hoping not to tell anyone until March actually which should still leave enough to order the dress if anything happens.  ughhhhhhh

  • Dear Bridezilla,

    I'm sorry I lied, but my world doesn't revolve around you and your wedding. I tried REALLY hard to avoid getting KU just so I could be there for YOU. Oops. Life goes on. I will have my baby and you will get married. We both win. Best wishes!

    Sincerely,

    Your knocked up former bridesmaid,

    Big Smile

  • Yep just pull the m/c card.  I would have been 9 months pg at my friends wedding back in Oct but God had other plans.  Just tell her when your ready, you are growing a baby and....she's just getting married. Smile

  • Totally agree with everyone!!!  That is crazy, I'm actually coordinating a wedding on August 1st but I still haven't told them... at least they live about 7000 miles away from me!!!  But yeah I lived to DH's grandma and got caught... oops, oh well!!

  •  I don't see that you did anything wrong! I would've done the same thing! T

    echnically you're due in July, so if you really wanted to go you could... (assuming it's local, I suppose). Plus what is she going to do? Reschedule her wedding?! I mean really!

    Tell her when you're ready. Smile
