My inlaws have been talking about doing a big trip next summer and paying for all their kids and their families to come with them. Which is great, but what if...? They have been talking about it for months and yesterday, they decided on a cruise next July. Of course, my IF mind does some quick calculations - if this cycle works, then my due date would be March and the kiddo would be only three months old during the trip. I don't think kids are supposed to travel before six months due to the vaccination schedule. Plus, this is my first child and the stress of travelling with a newborn - that does not sound like a lot of fun to me.
When I bring up my concerns with my husband, he just says, we'll figure it out when it comes. !!! I keep trying to stress to him that there are times I won't be able to travel. He doesn't want to tell his parents that we are trying (or have been trying), so I'm stuck. I keep trying to side track the discussions and try to buy us more time, but everyone seems to want an answer right now and book things. I'd rather wait until January to know what's going on or until after something happens. I have brought up that we would probably need trip cancellation insurance since it is so far in advance.
I just looked up minimum age requirements on the cruise line and it's six months. I feel better because there's a requirement in place so I don't look like the paranoid person.
Ugh. The trip will be amazing and very generous, but I don't need the stress of trying to figure out if I'll be able to go. Damn you, IF.
