I Got Pregnant on My Wedding Night Essay

I Got Pregnant on My Wedding Night and Don't Regret a Single Thing

My husband and I knew we wanted to start a family soon after we got married. Um, soon turned out to be about five minutes after we walked down the aisle. OK, I'm exaggerating, but not by much. We welcomed our first daughter well before we celebrated our first wedding anniversary. Here's how it went down.

The night we got hitched, we agreed to ditch all birth control, and just "see what happened." What happened was, I got pregnant. I honestly could NOT believe it when, just weeks later, I took eight pregnancy tests, out of an abundance of caution, and saw a plus sign. On all of them. WTF?! All I'd ever heard from friends was that they'd tried to get pregnant for six months to a year after they got married before they actually conceived. No one gets pregnant on their first try, right? Yeah, that's a myth. And I'm living proof.

I truly believe becoming parents made our marriage stronger.

I'd like to say my shock morphed into joy upon finding out we were to become parents before we'd even received our wedding photo proofs. But I'd be lying. It took me several weeks for the news to settle in. It just felt like everything in my life had changed in an instant. Because it had. I had gone from single girl to a grown-up in the course of just a few weeks.

Luckily, my husband was overjoyed about the fact that he was going to be a father, and his enthusiasm was eventually contagious. We enjoyed the pregnancy and, bonus, got tons more gifts just months after our wedding! The day our little girl was born trumped our wedding day as the best day of my life by a long shot.

Now, looking back almost ten years later, I am actually happy I got pregnant so early on in our relationship, even if we didn't exactly plan it that way. I truly believe becoming parents made our marriage stronger. And our daughter is the best thing that has ever happened to us. No, we never got to travel, or see what married life, just us, was all about. But I know how it feels to have an instant family to love and cherish, and I wouldn't change a thing.
