"Vacation" with a Toddler
So we leave for our vacation in 9 days (my husband's mom wants to get all her kids together) which neither of us really want to go to... We are leaving the day I hit 29 weeks to go to North Carolina (from the Inland NW)... Heat, humidity, 3rd trimester, and a 2 yr old... now you see why Vacation is in quotations. I have a billion lists going to get ready and packed and we have 2 doc appts, (well baby for my 2 yr old and OBGYN for me) plus I work full time so I have to get all up to date before I go... I am trying really hard not to stress, but there is a part of me that hopes at my OBGYN appt she tells me she is no longer comfortable with me flying. We talked to her about it before we got tickets and she said as long as everything stays normal, it's not too late for me to be flying, I just needed to make sure and walk around a lot and stay hydrated, etc. Dreading going, but I don't see a way out of it at this point. I would rather take the week off, stay home, and go do fun stuff around town with my toddler and sneak a baby moon in with my hubby.... Sorry, I'm just whiny today, LOL
My hubby's family tried to get all 6 kids in my delivery room...we had the nurses tell them kids outside of immediate werenot allowed in delivery and not post partum because Andrew was sick. Heehee. You might be amazed-just tell OB you are stressed about the flight, at 29 weeks, that could be dangerous for baby with flying.
