When to plan vacation!? (Please answer quickly!)

Question for the Answer Box (i.e. responses from YOU!): When would the latest ideal time during pregnancy to take a vacation? I want to offer a Christmas surprise for dh with plans for one of the last couple only getaways we'll have for a long time.

Pretty much any time in the second trimester. The nausea of the first trimester is either over, or under control with meds, but you are not to the huge-belly-in-the-way part. You'll probably still have a good amount of energy and still be sleeping decently, and the peeing-every-half-hour probably won't have kicked in yet. You'll have enough of a belly visible that polite people will give you a seat on the subway or let you skip in line at the restroom, and you don't have the travel restrictions of late pregnancy. Have fun!

I would say 5-6 months. Same reasons as above.
