    The only reason I would say no is because you’re not quite out of the “safe zone” yet.  If you were to experience some sort of weird symptom and you were unable to go to your Doctor, would it worry you enough to ruin your vacation?

    @SoonToBee2013:  You will never, ever, ever be “alone” again. Even when you go on vacations in the future, a child will be waiting for you at home. Or with you. Go now.

    I would go. Take a Benadryl and b 6 vitamin before getting on the plane. That should help you sleep or at least not feel nauseous. (Try at home first). Enjoy your time together. For what it’s worth, I went to Jamaica at 16 weeks and swam with dolphins and climbed a waterfall… But I wouldn’t go that crazy if I was you lol.

    I would do whatever the Dr. said was ok for me to do. If the Dr said a 12 hour flight was perfectly ok at this point, I would do it. I highly doubt if you get nausea, you will decide to stay in the hotel room in bed all day – at least lay out in the beach while nauseous, that’s a bit better! Plus, don’t they give that anti-nausea medication to pregnant girls? I forget what it’s called – can you bring that with you, just in case? You’ll also be pretty much right out of the first trimester – and everyone I know says it’st he 1st and 3rd trimesters that are difficult. Tons of women I know take babymoons.

    Obviously, only you know your body. But, I think aliens would have to come down from Mars and tie me down to my bed to get me to say no to a trip to the Maldives, especially if I know a baby is coming along soon and I likely won’t be able to have this trip again for a very long time.

    My morning sickness started the last day of our honeymoon, so I had to fly back with it. It actually wasn’t any worse on the plane than it was when I wasn’t on the plane. I say go for it!

    I say go for it! I’m sure having some nice relaxing time in the sun would feel amazing right now. Who knows when you’ll get this chance again 🙂

    I would definitely do it as long as my doctor gave me the okay! Sounds like a great trip.

    @SoonToBee2013:  I would go! When will you ever get a chance to go on a trip like this again?

    I would talk to your doctor. As far as I know from friends and family you allowed to travel until your second or third trimester. The only reason for someone not to travel I think is if they were high risk or something of that nature.

    I’d go! Who knows when you will be able to do that kind of trip again and I hear that the Maldives may not be around for much longer due to global warming.
