Pregnant on Vacation?

Hello everyone. DH and I have just started TTGP with #1 and are only on our 2nd cycle. We're young (27, 28), healthy, no reason to think we have any fertility problems. My family has a big Hawaiian cruise planned for the end of March. We've decided that if I'm not pregnant by January then we'll take a few cycles off so I'm not in the middle of morning sickness on vacation. I'm starting to wonder if I'll feel ok enough around 4/5 months pregnant (if we get pregnant this cycle) or if we should put TTGP off until March...

Thoughts from more experienced ladies?

Re: Pregnant on Vacation?

  • My sister traveled to my wedding via cruise at 5 months pregnant.  She felt great.

    Many cruise lines have travel restrictions on pregnant women.  Make sure you'll be under the cutoff in March if you get pregnant now.

    I actually told my husband and I wanted to protect this month because I didn't want to be in the throes of morning sickness at the end of December when we were in Disney World.  He understood.  I have no regrets.

    Have fun!

     I love you. Maybe I'm an idiot for it, but I always have. Everything good that I try and do I do it because of you.  I try and get away but I just keep coming back. And that's because I love you.

  • I believe most cruises cut off at 24 weeks.

  • Good to know. I'll look into it more with our specific cruise line. Thanks!

  • FWIW, I was sick the whole pregnancy. It was definitely worse in first tri, but I sure as hell puked the whole way through. If you want to be guaranteed to feel top notch the whole trip, you may want to hold off because you'll never know how your body will respond.

  • I went on a cruise at 6 months with #1 and felt great! Imagine it would be different for everyone though.
  • I went on a jet boat at 5 months, and ended up puking on the side of the boat while kids on another boat screamed "look at that fat lady barf!" not fun.

  • The only reason why I'd put off ttc for a cruise is depending on the cruise line's rules about pregnancy. I think they don't let you on after a certain week.

  • I was 21 weeks along when we cruised last Sept. I felt great. Just got over all day sickness! It was nice to have all that food any time I wanted to eat!

  • 2nd tri is when most people feel their best during pregnancy and would more than likely be the ideal time. As mentioned, double check restrictions also.

  • I am lurking from the May moms board but I just got married last month and had horrible morning sickness our entire honeymoon and wish I would have waited until the honeymoon to start trying. It only took us 1 cycle and we both were surprised
  • We went on a cruise towards the end of my first trimester. I felt fine even though I'd suffered from seasickness on a previous cruise. I recommend getting a room with a window that opens if possible, and be sure to drink plenty of water. Sea bands might be useful, too.

  • I went to punta Cana around 11 weeks. I had a great time. My morning (well, in my case, night) sickness was gone around 8w.

  • I was over MS by 15 weeks and felt pretty good for the rest of my pregnancy. I think 4-5 months is a great time to go. Your not to big and uncomfortable and your past the iffy 1 st tri!

  • Everyone handles pregnancy differently. H and I went on our honeymoon when I was 6 weeks along, thankfully though, I didn't experience any morning sickness.
    We had another trip planned for when I was 24 weeks along but that had to be postponed until after the birth because we found out we were having twins and I was bedridden at 19 weeks. :/
