First off - Italy: GO! Awesome place to visit. We did 3 nights in Rome, 3 in Venice, 3 in Siena, 4 in the Cinque Terre and 2 more in Rome.
My wife was pretty sick at the front end but luckily was put on Zofran to help keep it under control. By the end was was doing much better.
Part of the issue was also the trip was over the same time as our miscarriage in December - Week 11. Our new OB - who we switched too after not the best luck with our previous midwife - got us a US just before we left to keep our minds at ease, and because my wife continued to have spotting.
Thank goodness the spotting ended almost as soon as we got to Italy. And we had so much fun it helped the 2 weeks go fast, and now we are at the precipice of Week 13 and the end of the 1st Trimester.
We have an NT scan in the am tomorrow, and were able to hear the heartbeat last night with a home Doppler. So while up until now we've been trying to not look past the trip so not get our hopes up, we are finally starting to give thought to the next 6 months and beyond!
