Hi! I'm currently only 13 weeks pregnant, but I have a bit of a dilemma and was hoping to gain some wisdom from new moms who are where I will be when this all happens. My sister-in-law is getting married in mid-May 2012. She and I have never been close, but I was just asked to be a bridesmaid in the wedding! The wedding that will occur approximately FIVE weeks after I have given birth?!
I just don't know what to do! I am flattered that she would ask me, and under different circumstances, I think it would be fun and a good way for me to get to know her better. I'm just not sure about THESE circumstances. She's also asking my husband (her brother) to be in the wedding, as well.
Is it wrong to decline the invitation? Should I just suck it up and be a post-pregnancy bridesmaid in all of my awkward glory? [fyi-this is my first pregnancy, I've never been a 'little' girl, and I completely expect to be 'waddling' by the end of this one...and, more than likely, for a few months after! They might have to roll me down the aisle!]
I appreciate whatever words of wisdom you might be inclined to pass my way!
