    Default Safe to travel? (26 weeks)

    Husband and I are planning to have our last couple holiday before our first baby is due in July. We are thinking of going around Easter when I will be 26 weeks.

    We are not thinking to travel to anywhere far, Launceston is our choice as hubby never been to Tassie and it is only under 2 hours to get there by plane from Sydney. Anyone travelled when they were at the end of their second trimester? Did u find it hard to walk around or to enjoy yourself? My MIL told me not to go as my tummy will be huge and I won't be able to move around....

    Not quite the same as no flying for us however dh, inlaws & I just returned last week from esperance which involved an 8.5ish car trip (i drove all the way too as I get awful car sickness) I'm 32wks & had no troubles. We spent everyday out doing things & apart from getting pretty tired by evening I was fine.

    I can't imagine you would be so big at 26wks that you couldn't get around and enjoy yourself??

    I went to vanuatu at 30 weeks. I had a horrible 2nd pregnancy though and wouldn't of gone if it wasn't for my sisters wedding. I found it was kind of a waste of money for me because I really couldn't enjoy myself, being so sick and in the horrible humidity.

    My first pregnancy though, I could if done it till 40 weeks and loved it! If your having a good pregnacy now, I'd say that you'd be right and will enjoy it.

    That is good to hear this is my first so I am not sure what to expect. Everything has been fine... I will have my 20w scan 2 weeks later so I may find out more. And we r only thinking of going for 4 days, walk around the town centre, take pics, eat and sleep nothing require too much energy.

    It really depends on how you are feeling. At 32 weeks I had to travel interstate (90 min flight + 3 hr drive) and found it challenging. BUT I still had all-day sickness, it was hot and I was on codeine for some complications. If you are feeling fine I say go for it.

    I'm 26 weeks tomorrow and currently on holidays. We are away with three other families and despite the fact that I cannot drink alcohol, eat prawns or do the extreme water sports on offer I'm still having a great time.

    To make up for missing today's extreme activities I'm off for a pregnancy massage tomorrow morning.

    When pregnant with DS we went to NZ in my second trimester and it was fine.

    If you feel up to it go!

    I think each pregnancy for each woman is different. I'm currently 26 weeks and have had pelvic pain for the last month. My pregnancy was a breeze for the first 22 weeks. Now I walk like an 80 year old! I also get swollen ankles. But I wouldn't not go on holidays because of it. I would suggest you don't pre-book any activities for while you're there in case you don't feel up to it.

    At 20 weeks I went away for a week on my own with our 3 year old, got myself around on public transport & was maid of honour at my besties wedding. It was fine.

    Im 35 weeks tomorrow I wouldn't mind a holiday now even (I'm not 100% sure when the cut off for flying is though)

    This is a useful thread for me too as my hubby and I paid a hefty deposit on a 2 week tour around China the day before we found out we were expecting lol I have my date scan tomorrow but estimate I'll be around the same time between 24-27 weeks during our trip. I know it means I can't eat everything on offer and need to be careful over there but hopefully all goes okay and it can still be an enjoyable holiday as a couple before we become a family
