I have no idea how i am going to cope with this. On Saturday my husband and I are leaving for our Honeymoon Cruise.
Our honeymoon was ooked and paid for before we found out we were pregnant/ Of course my first thought was lets postpone. I contacted the cruise company but there would have been a hefty penalty to do so which we just could not afford.
Everybody kept tlling me i will be fine about it but its now a few days before we depart and i am so upset at the thought of leaving my beautiful 5 month old for 2 whole weeks.
I know she will be fine after a day or two and is probably too young yet to get seperation anxiety but I will get seperation anxiety myself.
I have no idea how i will cope on Honeymoon. I will be an emotional mess 🙁
She is stayng with my parents and i know they are more than capable of looking after her having bought up 2 children themselves 1 of which is brain damaged but its been a long time since they have had baby in the house.
We are going to Skype every evening before bed buti just needed get my emotions out before we go.
I am cherishing every moan cry and tantrum over the next few days!!!
Here is my angel

@ajillity81: We think we will be able to. our cabin is right next to the iLounge so might be able to get signal from our room. Just need to teach my dad how to use it

@ChocolateLime: when I went away with the military I felt the same way, its hard leaving your lil ones. What your feeling is completely normal.honestly kids cope very very well, it’s us that have a hard time adjusting to different situations. Rest assured grandma and grand pop are going to spoil him like crazy

@ChocolateLime: omg she’s so cute! My sister and BIL left their 9 month old (at the time) with my mom for a week so they could go on a trip. He looked for them for a couple days and by day three he didn’t care. I just made sure I kept him entertained lol When they did come to get him he cried and cried I’m not sure why but he was really excited to see his parents 🙂

@ChocolateLime: Aw I’m sorry you’re sad. Good moms need breaks every once and a while, though! I hope you are able to fully enjoy your honeymoon and take time to relax and recharge.

I spent 26 years in the military and it was always hard to leave my kids. What you are feeling is normal, but you need to concentrate on this being a special time for you and DH and know that your DD is with someone who cares for her and loves her. Those adult “recharging” trips are few and far between. Do NOT lose the magic of the trip because your DD is not with you. When you invest in yourselves and your marriage, you invest in her and your family. Said the mom who has left her kids a time or two….. Have a wonderful trip!
