I still felt kind of terrible at 20 weeks. I threw up all the way to our annual family beach and still have an aversion re: going there again with DD because I associate the drive with severe nausea. I read on the beach, took short walks, and added a few seashells to my collection. I also shopped a bit in town, bought food and a few home decorating items, and prepared some meals at the beach house.

are you in the North America and if so, where did you go? A mountain babymoon sounds right up my alley 🙂

I felt zombie tired/ could barely move/ horrible until 13 weeks, then I felt immense joint pains until around 18 weeks. I figured the joint pains would just continue to get worse but actually they have let up a lot. I definitely can’t walk as long or as fast as before I was pregnant and I get tired easier- but I’m actually feeling really good (and I was miserable about the pregnancy up until a few weeks ago). We are saving vacation time for when the baby is born so no baby moon for us, but we will be visiting relatives on the other side of the country in a week- no worries about it.

Thank you everyone!!! 🙂 We all seem to agree that a babymoon is a good idea!! (We live in Sweden and get nine months payed parenting leave each so we’re not saving any vacation days. Plus I’m a teacher so great hours for a mum.)
The heat possibly being to much is a good point!! I usually love heat but I have no idea how I will feel when “more pregnant”. Perhaps we could find a closer beach in Europe where the temperature is more mild in summer. Maybe Croatia or France. Anyone been and have any tips?

I felt fantastic at 20 weeks! We are doing a laid back babymoon over memorial day when I’ll be 33 weeks and I think it will still be fine. We plan on doing some light hiking and general relaxing.

Croatia is beautiful! Split is nice for the beach in Croatia. Also Malta is a beautiful island.

I’ll add I felt great at 20 weeks and have traveled quite a bit during my both first pregnancy as well as this one (currently 39 weeks!). We went to Hawaii at 33-35 weeks this time. Anyway, I’d recommend the French Alps and then Menton along the Mediterranean. You could do some hiking and then relaxing on the beach. There is also good hiking around Menton, and you wouldn’t have to worry about altitude slowing you down. Menton is east of Nice and just lovely. I’ve been there twice and really like the vibe. Anyway, have fun! I love to travel and havent seen pregnancy (or parenthood) as a reason not to!

DH and I went to Ireland for 2 weeks when I was 26-28 weeks. I had no issues except finding a bathroom when I needed it. I walked a few miles a day (at least) in Dublin. At 20 weeks I don’t see a hiking/camping trip being an issues as long as long as you plan ahead for the bathroom issue.

I am currently around 14 weeks pregnant and I travele to the Belgium at 6 weeks. I will be honest, starting the trip was fine. By the end, I was miserable. I was tired, nauseous and felt icky. I have felt that way for the past 8 weeks. Now that I am in the second trimester, it feels like there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I am starting to slowly feel better. I will be 20 weeks around the begging of July too and hoping to plan a babymoon trip for around September (28 weeks). I have no idea how I will feel (hopefully better), but I want to go somewhere relaxing and fun regardless.
I would guess that you will likely feel fine. Maybe not tons of energy, but a laid back vacation with nice weather even if you don’t feel 100% you is gonig to feel better than just sitting at home feeling the same way 🙂

With my first, we did a glamping/hiking trip around 30 weeks. I got a little winded, but not too bad. With #2, we took a cruise to Alaska when I was 23 weeks. I was fine getting around (I was very careful on my footwear selection), and there was plenty to do…and I got to satisfy every craving on board 🙂
