    At four weeks along there's not much you can do to interfere with a foetus (besides really bad things like smoking or injury) so other than avoiding contaminated food as others have said - mostly just avoid fever which is a bit dangerous; you should be ok.

    A pregnancy loss so early on is usually not preventable and due to chromosomal issues so it isn't something you actually have control of.

    Be aware of your general safety with the transport you choose there and try to avoid second hand smoke would be my tips.

    Personally no, I wouldn't, I always get a touch of Bali belly and it wouldn't be nice while pregnant.
    Plenty of people do though!

    Sorry hit reply by accident! I wouldn't go because I would be scared of eating or drinking something that made me sick but I have a sensitive tummy and have had 3 miscarriages last year so may be a bit on the overly cautious side.

    With my first DS I went to another island in a developing country at 6 weeks. It went well and I was just extremely cautious with food and drinks. I did have a minor bleed after DTD but it was minimal and not much else I could do.

    Now with my current pregnancy (have had recurrent miscarriage) I wouldn't have gone if it was in the first trimester, but that's me being cautious of my history.

    If you do go, just ensure you drink bottled water only. Do not have any ice. Don't eat anything cold like salads, meats etc. And don't eat anything from small side vendors.

    Also, check your travel insurance.

    Otherwise enjoy and soak up that vitamin D.

    No way. I'd be so freaked out and watching everything I ate and drank it would ruin the trip for me. But then like a PP, I have a history of loss so I'm quite anxious when pg.

    I'd go. As others have said, only drink bottled water (even for teeth brushing) and avoid ice in drinks, and don't eat anything like salad that might have been washed in tap water. But that's pretty standard for Bali anyway. I'd also stay somewhere in Nusa Dua (if you don't mind a more resort style holiday as there's not much to do there) or Seminyak as there are more higher end dining options available and I'd feel safer eating there than some of the more dodgy looking options in Kuta.

    I went to Bali at 24 weeks pregnant. Had a lovely relaxing time.
    We just ate at the hotel a fair bit more than we usually do.
    Follow all the food/drink advice pp's have given, stay hydrated & have a great time!
