About the cruise every line is different but most won’t let you on when you’re past 5 months so check. We had to cancel a trip we had planned for DH’s 30th birthday πŸ™

And there’s no help for you πŸ˜‰ welcome to TTC

From babycenter.com

“Most cruise lines don’t allow pregnant women to sail during their third trimester or so. To sail with Carnival or Royal Caribbean, for example, a mom-to-be must be no more than 23 weeks along at any time during the cruise. Specific policies vary, however, so check with the cruise line before booking.

Even if the cruise line doesn’t require it, it’s a good idea to carry a letter from your healthcare provider stating your due date, your fitness for travel, any medical conditions, and any medications you’re taking. That way you can avoid unpleasant surprises at the boarding dock.”

@stephanie63087: If they even sense you’re pregnant they ask for a doctors note verifying how far along you are. They actually ask quite a few things about your medical status sometimes and that’s always a question that comes up I guess.

They asked me if I was pregnant before going on my last cruise. I was with a girlfriend. they asked her too. This was with Carnival. So I would defintaly check.

Don’t mean to jack, but what is wrong with pregnant women on a cruise- I have never heard of this before? Fear of an early delivery and not having the resources? Extra bad morning sickness?

@Eva Peron: They dont have the medical equipment/help/resources on a cruise and with you being in the middle of the ocean, the only way would be to helicopter you out. It’s just not safe, because you never know.

Plus there is a heightened risk for disease or infection depending on where you are traveling.
