Hi there i am a 19 year old mom to a 9 month old baby girl, well i will be 20 next month and i am worried i am pregnant again. You see i am on the pill and my fiance and i use condoms about 95% of the time but according to my pills i was supposed to get my period yesterday and i still haven’t gotten it. Now i need help/advice on what to do because for one thing the new baby and my daughter will be 18 months apart and i wanted then 3 years apart and the baby would be due in november and my fiance and mine wedding is supposed to be in october and i don’t wanna be 8 months pregnant on my wedding day. So i need help on what to do and also maybe some stories from mom’s that have raised children this close in age. Oh and also i am planning on taking a test on sunday if i don’t get my period, before i am due to start a new pack of pills. So any advice/ stories will be appreciated.
Hi, this is Nina. You know, your marriage is more important that your wedding day. You can make changes to your plans. Don’t take any more pills until you know; the pills can harm your baby if you are pregnant. My brother and I were close in age. It was great and awful; we did try to steal each other’s friends ;>)! and we competed for toys, time, attention. We kept my mom on her toes. Now, he and I don’t talk all the time, but when we do, we get along really well. He’s different than me, outdoorsy and active, while I watch a lot of movies and read a lot. You can do it! The wedding day can be altered; it could be fun!
