Did you do it the right way?

Out of all of my husband's brothers and sisters, we are the only ones that got married first then planned for a baby. We conceived about 8 months after marrying. Pretty much all of his sisters were knocked up on their wedding day. Most of my friends were as well. I am very proud of my husband and I for going about it the right way. I feel my daughter will be happier in life knowing that she was very much wanted and planned and not an accident or the only reason mommy and daddy got married. We are planning on trying for a sibling for her in 3-4 months when my birth control is no longer effective. His other sister just found out she's pregnant again too so likely all my daughters cousins will be "Irish twins" aka about 9-10 months apart in age.

I was 7 months pregnant when I got married. We were already living together and would have eventually married anyway but moved things along a bit faster because of my pregnancy. May not have been "the right way" but we have been married 10 yrs. and we are together and happier than ever.

Yes. Graduated high school, got married and planned two children. We are still happily married 10 years later.

Yes, we did it the right way.  It's kind of tacky to be pregnant and getting married in my opinion.

You did everything right until you mentioned birth control.

My oldest was born out of wedlock. My youngest's father and I were engaged when we got pregnant, supposed to be married the following summer, we just sped it up.

I may not have done it "right", but my girls are not suffering because of it.

BTW: the only way anyone is "Irish Twins" is if they are siblings. Not cousins.

We got married after (4 weeks) our son was born. It's what worked for us.

In this day and age I no longer believe in 'the right way'. Both  my hubby and I met after going through divorces we are now married have kids together and have kids from before and are  100% happy.

Yes we did. Dated a few years, got engaged, married a year later, pregnant with our first ten months after we got married--and it was planned. Now, the other three were surprises to us, but we def planned the first one lol.
