I'm not sure I'm in the right forum to ask this so please move me if I'm not!!!
I am now 15 weeks pregnant with our 3rd baby. We would like to plan a very specail trip just my DH and I. I would be about 25 weeks pregnant by then. First, it would be an early 10th wedding anniversary celebration (the baby is actually due on our anniversary in August). Secondly, it would be the first time in 5 years (DS1 will be 5 in June and DS2 2 1/2) I leave our sons overnight (let alone 7 nights!!!)... actually it will be the first time they are without me for more than a dinner and movie which happens for DH and I about 6 times a year! They don't go to day care or preschool so they are with me 24/7. So that would be really hard for me but really necessary I think. Thirdly, well it's some time alone with DH that we never take and it's before the baby... so the next chance we will have to do this will probably be in 3 years!!!
Ok, so we want to go to French Polynesia!!! Yes, that's far . So, what do you think? I posted the same question on a travel website and I have to say I was surprised that everyone suggested to me to stay home!!! Well I'm only going to be 25 weeks pregnant not 36 weeks So, yes I understand I might not be able to do some tours or go up or down the water from a snorkeling boat, but we want to go to paradise to relax and take in the sigths not hike or scuba dive!!! So, that's why I decided to post here cause mamas here understand we all need a break and this is it for me! Do you think we should keep the trip for later in our lives and go somewhere else (closer?)? I know every pregnancies are different but my first 2 were pretty much the same and without any problems.... this one so far is also good. I haven't even seen a midwife or a doctor yet...
Anyways I came here to get some thoughts and opinions on this. Did you have a babymoon with any of your children? How far along were you? I know it would be great if we could go earlier but it is unfortunately not an option for us! Thanks mamas for your advices and suggestions!
