Hubby and I are planning to go to Disney in the Fall/Winter with our families, but we are a little hesitant to reserve anything because we are also planning to TTC next month AND we don’t want to tell them about our TTC plan, for various reasons (big mouths, addtl. stress, pressure, etc).
I guess my worry is that there is the possibility I will get pregnant prior to Disney and I’ll have unfavorable, or even untolerable, symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, etc during the trip. I don’t want to spend our magical time in our hotel room w/ my head in a toilet. I also don’t want to tell our families we can’t go either because they will ofcourse ask us why not (and I’m not a good liar), but in all reality, there is also the chance we won’t get pregnant before our trip and I would hate to not go when we definitely could have.
I’m sooo torn on what to do…I’ve never been to Disney World before so I would love the chance to go!
What would you do in this situation? Has anyone been in a similar situation..how did that all work out for you?

Book the trip – you don‘t know how long it will take you to conceive. If you do right away, by then,the worst symptoms should be over. If you don‘t conceive right away, you‘ll either be too early to be miserable, OR you‘ll still be TTC at the time of the trip and it won‘t matter. THere‘s actually only a small chance you‘ll be super miserable on the trip, and even then, you can take things or eat certain things to feel better (who knows if you‘ll even be nauseated while pregnant!). I‘ve never made plans around TTC – first time or now!

Book the trip and get travel insurance. The worst thing you can do while TTC is put the rest of your life on hold and act like you’re pregnant before you actually are.

Disney is supposed to be wonderful while pregnant! So many rides are safe, aside from the 3 main roller coasters at MK and a handful of other rides, you should be able to enjoy! My hubby and I plan on taking a babymoon there when it’s time. Go and enjoy!

Book it! No point putting your life on hold just because you might possibly be pregnant and might possibly feel crappy. Lots of women don’t even get morning sickness or any other symptoms in the beginning anyway. Don’t live your life based on what ifs.
Go and have fun! Think of it as your last kid-free trip for a while and enjoy it!

We actually decided against going on a family cruise with my family because it’s next March for spring break and we knew we were ttc after the wedding, and with cruises, you can’t go aftwr6 months pregnant or with a kid under 6 months. We actually just told them we’d let them know by October I’d we decided to go. We’re due February 2, so we aren’t going.
My sister is also ttc and they aren’t pregnant yet, but they aren’t going for the same reason.
Otoh, for a Disney vacation, we’d probably have said yes at first, but after we got our due date, we’d have backed out. We don’t want to travel with a newborn after all.

Book it! If you get pregnant you can make changes/decisions based on how you’re feeling, and if you don’t, you won’t regret not going because you might have been pregnant.
I personally like to tempt the universe by booking all the things in the hopes of two lines.

tiffanybruiser : this. I just booked a flight and it was $15 to add the insurance…like how is it not worth $15!
That way you don’t have to worry or make excuses 🙂

My SIL was pregnant on our recent family trip to Hawaii. We didn’t know they were TTC when we booked the trip but she had a great time! She couldn’t do everything with us but she could do probably 90% of stuff.
And you can always get travel insurance. It’s so cheap to get and that way it won’t be a huge deal if you feel like backing out if you are pregnant and having a hard time.

coffeelvr45 : i’d book the trip.
I regret the many things i put on hold while TTC.. which ended up taking 13 months.
Besides, I got pregnant (well, it implanted) while on vacation. I hear its not uncommon. It certainly made an already great trip even more fun, to find out we were finally pregnant!

As someone who has been had been TTC for 3 years… book it. Don’t hold off in what ifs!

Wait to go to Disney with your kid… 😉 Just kidding.
My advice would be book it! It can be a slippery slope when you start putting life off because of TTC. You might find getting pregnant takes longer than you imagined. If you get happy news you may not have many symptoms or have very manageable ones. You don’t want to feel like you missed out on a great time in your life.

coffeelvr45 : We’re going to TTC next month as well. Normally we go to Mexico or Carribean the week after Thanksgiving but with the Zika concerns, we’re just planning a trip to NYC for after Christmas. I figure, if I am pregnant, it’s an awesome place to eat myself silly & wander 5th ave & Central Park… and if I’m not pregnant by then, it’s such a great city to explore new cocktail bars & shop!
