About to get married in a few weeks. Had everything planned, and in place. It wasn’t going to be a big wedding just family and close friends.
My maid of honor was a little pregnant, (okay a lot pregnant) with a chance of giving birth before our wedding day.
During the wedding rehearsal, I thought she looked a little piqued and asked if she was going to be okay. “No worries.”
Thank goodness I had a backup maid of honor, my sister in law Jackie as Shelley gave birth to a baby boy on the eve of our wedding.
