I haven't read all replies but I'm 27 and currently 22 wks with our first. I have travelled a lot and honestly had the best times of my life on my trips, especially the more recent ones with my hubby. I also like to have adventures at home and weekends away. I feel like I've got it out of my system and ready to settle down with bubs now.
However, if I hadn't, I'd be totally open to travelling with my baby. I went to NZ while 14-17 weeks pregnant and it was great. It sounds to me like you want a bubba more than you want to travel right now and I would always say go with your heart.

Thanks everyone. I'm still so on the fence and I think DH is too which I think means we should probably wait a little while I don't know if we will end up travelling before we TTC, or not, but I think the fact that we are both so undecided means that we should probably wait a bit rather than jump right into it. As clucky as I am! Thank you everyone so much for your responses and also for sharing your own personal stories!

It's funny how it works, isn't it? I don't think I'm necessary "clucky" as such but I am 28 and always thought I would have kids before 30, I wanted to get married first and be relatively stable financially, and we have ticked all those things off. I know my husband will be an amazing dad and I can really picture myself with kids but there was also part of me wondering if we were "ready" because obviously it's such a big life change. Then when I went off the pill and it taking a while for things to go back to normal I am actually getting disappointed and impatient - in a way I didn't realise how much I wanted to fall pregnant until it didn't all just click like I had expected! I think it is pretty normal to be weighing it all up but if you get the travel bug, go for it, or if you decide you're as ready as you'll ever be for kids, go with that too. Good luck!

Hey Lennon, do you know what kind of traveller you are? If not it's a great idea to go on a trip before TTC-ing! Even a 1-2 week trip is plenty of time to help you work out what kind of traveller you are and that might help you decide if you should putt off TTC-ing for a year or 2?
DH and I try to go on one O/S holiday a year. I think this is something we can sustain even with a kidlet in tow because we are pretty chilled out travellers. We don't try to cram too much into a trip, prefer to spend time outdoors, are quite thrifty and are generally pretty good at dealing when things don't go according to plan (and they often don't!)
If however, we were into hardcore sightseeing or partying or really into luxury then obviously we'd try to get rid of the travel itch before TTC
Having said that though, I have no experience with travelling with kids as we're still TTC, 8 cycles and counting We did fit in a Europe trip while TTC and I heard the 2nd trimester is a great time to travel !
Edit: we're both 28

Thanks everyone for all of your replies on the topic.
Well, DH and I have started to more actively start TTC right now, reason being that we just found out my dad has cancer He would love to see a grandchild in his lifetime, as he does not have any. So we are going to postpone the travel to a (much) later time in our lives and we are very content with the decision we have made I think...

It's still very early stages of my dad's diagnosis, and he could end up being able to live a long and happy life if we are lucky, but at the moment we just don't know Cancer is a terrible thing.
Thanks so much for your reply x
