    I’m going to Norway in July and am delaying TTC for that, so I probably would lol. I’m not in a crazy hurry to be pregnant though.

    I wouldn’t delay it – I’d def still be able to have fun. but if you know you’d be upset not being able to drink and you’re not urging that badly for a baby, then wait. I don’t think any poll could take this question from you. 

    If it’s about the more general aspects of travelling while pregnant, fine people can share their experiences, but with tears to whether you’d feel like missin out when you’re not riding a roller coaster, how should we know? 

    With regards to the travelling, you’ll be early days so you might experience quite some nausea tht may seriously bother you. You could also feel terribly tired all the time. On the other hand, you’re belly is not going to be too big yet, so that won’t bother you, you won’t get exhausted easily and so on. 

    Fwiw, i had some business trips throughout my pregnancy and was fine and we went on vacation to Portugal three months before DD was born and we did a road trip through the country and that was just fine as well.

    As someone who has been TTC since June, I would definitely not delay TTC because of a trip. My family and I are planning a Christmas 2014 Disney World vacation and I am still TTC even though I could potentially have a Christmas baby and not be able to go or be too pregnant to fly. I am willing to take my chances.   However, if you are in no rush to get pregnant then you could wait.

    Nope. Knowing how long it’s taken us, I wouldn’t recommend putting it on hold (just my opinion). Everyone is different and some people are in no hurry, but if you have a timeline in mind, I wouldn’t wait. You just never know. We waited a year after we got married to start ttc and it’s been about 18 months now that we’re still trying. At this point, we’re waiting for our little blessing and willing to make any adjusments or sacrifices necessary when the time comes.

    MissGeeBee:  Maybe.  We originally planned to start TTC on our one year anniversary in November.  Then some friends of ours in the UK set their wedding for September 2015 and we had to have the “baby conversation” ASAP since we would have been due on or about September if we conceived right away.  After discussion our options we decided to wait until March 2015 to start TTC so we would most likely be in our second trimester for the wedding.  If we don’t conceive by June 2015, we’ll wait until the wedding to start TTC again.

    I would just not try to not conceive and see what happens. If you want one more adventure then wait – but I honestly don’t think you will make a bad decision either way. And this is not a silly reason not to try – you two should enjoy the pre baby time 🙂

    I wouldnt but having a baby to me is more important than drinking and roller coasters. Only you can decide if you would rather wait or not. Everyone’s priorities are different. Nothing wrong with either one.

    How old are you? I think that’s important to know

    Personally I would definitely wait. Enjoy life without children as long as possible. They’re joys but you can’t do the things you enjoyed before with them (or while pregnant)!

    It depends on how old you are. If you are 39, you probably shouldn’t delay TTC but if you are 25, go for it.

    We are delaying TTC our second right now because of a trip next January. I will (hopefully) be pregnant on the trip, but I don’t want to be in my 3rd trimester or have a newborn, so we’re holding off a bit. I’m not sure if I could have waited if it were our first pregnancy, though. I think if you’re okay with waiting, and worried that it would ruin your trip to be pregnant, then go ahead and wait. If you feel like TTC may be difficult for you, then it’s probably worth starting. If you’re pregnant, you’re pregnant, if not, then roller coasters!

    For a trip to Florida, um no.  Maybe if you told me you were going to summit Mount Everest or be swimming in the Ganges I would think differently.  But Florida is probably exactly the same as where you are now.

    Also you have no idea how long it will take you to get pregnant.  It would be awful to find out you have trouble and be many months behind getting to intervention because you waited to go to Florida and so you could drink at a party.
