Whlie you never can know how long it will take to conceive, I can tell you this: if it would disappoint you enormously to be there, not able to ride the good rides, and potentially feel miserable for much of the trip (I am 7 weeks and can barely handle going to the store), do not plan the trip. But it doesn’t mean you won’t get this opportunity in a few years, when you’re through the pregnancy and the baby is ready for travel!

If you just want to get away and be with friends, regardless of possibly not being able to go on the rides and feeling crappy, then you should plan the trip.

If you are ok with putting off TTC for two more months to get in one awesome adult trip before a baby comes along, go for it! It sounds like your doc is advising against that, but there are so many options out there for getting pregnant – it’s hard to know!

I, personally, wouldn’t think that waiting 2 months would make too much difference. And I love group trips and roller coasters. So I’d probably wait for TTC and do the trip. But I also wouldn’t mind going and not riding big rides. So I might just try and still book the trip. But that’s me.

I probably wouldn’t be nervous about riding roller coasters but more the nausea/queasiness and exhaustion of the first trimester, although I felt ok until about 6 weeks. I am 10 weeks pregnant now and totally underestimated how tired I would be! I mean I can suck it up and exercise, go to work, go to parties, etc, it’s just not nearly as fun and for me it is hard to socialize and really enjoy myself when I feel so tired. People have definitely picked up on it and asked if I am feeling ok or if I’m sad. I know I just seem ‘off’ and totally lacking energy and enthusiasm. I also feel queasy a lot and would not be stoked on wild rides, and I definitely love them normally. I think holding off on TTC for one month is smart if you want to truly enjoy your vacation, even though I know it’s hard when you want to get pregnant!

@Katie3:  Our original TTC month was July. I ended up O’ing June 24 so we tried in June & I got my BFP July 3, one day before we left for our 18 day trip to northern europe. I ended up going to 2 theme parks while on vacation (Tivoli Gardens & LegoLand) and just skipped the rides. I was too thrilled about being pregnant to care about the rides =)
