Let me start off by saying that DH and I rarely go away, and I don't consider my question to be a major issue of concern. I am just at a loss for what to do and wanted to get some thoughts/ideas.
We just celebrated our anniversary, and my in-laws said they'd treat us for a weekend trip somewhere. We're going to drive somewhere, so flying will not be an issue. I am almost 15 weeks pregnant and I've had bleeding on an off since week 9. Although the doctor is not concerned and expects it to stop on it's own by 20 weeks, I'm not supposed to lift anything heavy, no exercise, and no intercourse. Although I'm currently only working part time, I'm allowed to work and do other normal activities.
Normally we like the outdoors and I like to be active. Even though the zika mosquitoes are not yet anywhere near NJ, we don't want to spend a lot of time outside and then find out on a news report one day that suddenly they are here. So I've been avoiding spending a lot of time outside and missed out on bbqs and stuff like that.
I know that before going away, I'm going to ask the dr if it is okay and find out what I can and can't do. Right now I'm really at a loss for what would do. My dh suggested a resort in the Poconos like Great Wolf Lodge. If I wasn't pregnant, I would love to go there. DH was mentioning that I could go on the lazy river, get a massage, and just relax. With the bleeding still being an issue right now, I'm not sure if I want to be in the water. I have to find out from the dr if I a prenatal massage is something I can do right now. Even if it is, I guess I'm just not that interested. I'm trying to thinking of other ideas that don't involve being in the outdoors or just lying around inside, and I'm really not sure. I don't want to seem unappreciative of my in-laws' offer, but I'm not sure what to do. I was thinking about combining the resort with dinner and some kind of show somewhere, even though dh isn't really into musical theater. I just wanted to see if anyone has any ideas I hadn't thought of. I guess some kind of museum would be okay too, but I'd have to see if I can get dh into that idea.
