So does anyone have any vacations planned before LO arrives? We are going to the beach just for a long weekend later this month, but other then that I dont think we will be doing much else. Originally we had planned a week long beach trip in August, but my OB nixed that plan after we found out there were 2.
I wish! We usually go up to NY in the summer to visit my family (and go to the beach), but it's just not going to work out this year. Between limitations of when we could fly because of the pregnancy, and the renovations on the house, it's just not going to happen. I'm sad- I always look forward to it! We might go up to KY for a long weekend to see DH's family, but that would be it.
We just got back from our "babymoon" but were planning another trip to the US over the July Canadian long weekend (July 1st) but my insurance cuts off out of province coverage at 31 weeks (I would be 31 weeks the day we would return). IF there was any discrepency in my due date at all, there is potential I would not be covered for any of it so we decided not to go. I wanted to do some outlet shopping
We're driving to the beach next weekend thurs-sunday, I have a continuing ed conference and my parents will be at their beach house, so we'll be dropping the kiddos off with them and staying together on the adults only floor at the hotel.
Also, over the 4th of july, we're going down to stay with my parents at their beach house thurs PM - tuesday. It's a family tradition, really.
Other than that, no, no major vaca plans. I need to work as much as possible between now and delivery so that my projected salary will be as high as possible.
No big vacations, mostly just day trips, maybe an overnight or two. Being pregnant really limits a lot of the things I like doing during the summer but I'm sure we'll go camping at least once and we definitely plan on going to a big waterpark at least once. We do lots of beach trips each summer so we'll definitely do that. In late August there is a fair up by my grandparents cabin and we usually go every year, but I'll be 35-36 weeks pregnant, which is when I've delivered all my other kids...I am thinking we'll see how I'm feeling at that point, I'd really like to go but obviously it might not be the best choice this year.

No trips for me Last trip to my parents back in April (200 miles away) the ride home was so uncomfortable with contractions. So I would rather not risk it. Even though as soon as I got home and out of the car I was fine, I don't want to A) be uncomfortable for a whole car trip or B) be away from my OB and hospital if for some reason the contractions didn't stop.
My vacation is the week after next. I can't wait! origionally we were going to virginia beach but DH just got hired on at a new job and therefore wont be able to take a vacation so it looks like we'll have a staycation...most likely just do activities around town when DH isn't at work. =/ but oh well at least I will be able to relax.
We were planning to go to Calgary for a week during Stampede to visit my DH's family, but I'll be late enough in the pregnancy then that I don't want to be any distance away from an emergency facility in case I have a placental bleed - the drive to Calgary takes 9 hours and it's largely in the middle of nowhere. So I think we've opted to stay home
possibly. We are trying to get MIL to take the boys for a few days so we can have a weekend alone, but I'm not sure I really trust her to take care of our 2 year old by herself for that long.

Well we've already done two vacations (our cruise to Mexico and then Disneyland) so we don't have any plans for any big vacations.
My parents have asked to take Brandon for a week and half right before my birthday so Chris was talking about getting away for the weekend. Since it's so late in the pregnancy we won't go anywhere too far. We may do Vegas but I've also been looking into Solvang and the Santa Ynez Valley, and possibly Pismo Beach. My birthday isn't until the end of July so we have some time.
We are also going up north for a wedding for the Fourth of July weekend and for my birthday at the end of the month.
