girlfriday91 :  We go to the keys every year. You will be fine and it being December it is cooler and not really bug season as far as I know. I’ve never gotten a bug bite down there, and last April i saw a ton of pregnant tourists. If you are super concerned just load up with buy spray. 

Im currently pregnant and we are planning to go to the Keys during my pregnancy for a babymoon. I think the only areas that even had zika are near Miami? So I would say enjoy unless your doctor tells you otherwise

If the CDC says it is fine, it is fine IMO.

We are TTC and I have a trip planned for the week between Christmas and NY for Key Largo. Never crossed my mind not to go nor put off TTC after… I’m 35.

As someone else said, CDC says it’s fine, I figure they are better experts than I am, so I’ll go with their recommendation. smile

if cdc lifted the travel caution, then i would assume ok.  as PP said, just bring a lot of bug spray.  if it is cooler, you might be wearing long sleeves or get super light weight long sleeves and pants to wear.

Agree with other pp, we waited 6 months after travel to Cuba to start TTC because it wasn’t worth the risk. If the CDC says it should fine, I would go. That being said, after the flooding from the hurricanes sometimes mosquitoes can get a lot worse, so I would keep an eye on the area for the next month.
