Hi everyone im wondering how any of you plan overseas holidays in advance while ttc?
Me and dh want to go overseas again for a decent holiday, maybe 3 - 6 weeks & a minimum 10-14 hr plane flight away. I had a miscarriage early this year and im scared to book an overseas holiday in advance. My main issues are that booking it in advance means I obviously wont know if ill be pregnant or not by the time we are meant to leave. If I did get pregnant in the meantime, I wouldnt want to go overseas under any circumstances. I am a stresshead & would be stressing about every little thing like their water and food etc. I wouldn't be able to do or enjoy alot of tours with speed boats or rides. I could have morning sickness badly. The list of reasons why I wouldnt go if I was pregnant is endless. And after the miscarriage im going to be even more cautious! I know there is nothing wrong with going overseas while pregnant just in my personal situation I couldnt do it.
Travel insurance wont cover for change of mind or pregnancy im pretty sure. I know u can book fully refundable hotels on certain sites but from what ive looked into it seems almost impossible to get fully refunded for flights. Unless u pay triple the price for a fully flexible ticket? Ilooked these up and prices arent even justifiable.
We could book a holiday last minute so if I was going to be pregnant I would find out when I was overseas which I would be ok with if I was coming home shortly after. Just couldnt LEAVE for a holiday knowing im already pregnant.
Booking flights last minute tho is going to be quite expensive. As well as getting time off work would be difficult.
Does anyone have any tips? I dont want to put our lives on hold while ttc but also under no circumstances could I leave for a holiday if I was already pregnant.
There is a chance we might need ivf next year so I want to do everything I possibly can before then to avoid it.
I know alot of ppl might not know where im coming from as I know most ppl would just go on the holiday if they were pregnant. But after my miscarriage I really wouldnt be able to bring myself to.
Does anyone know anymore about booking flights and if u can get full refunds for change of mind or if ur situation changes? Or how would u go about booking overseas holidays in this situation?
Thanks in advance!!
