I am here to tell you that you can have a fabulous time on your vacation when you are pregnant! I actually found out I was pregnant an hour before I left for the airport. My vacation plans were turned upside down but I still had the best time on our trip! I will share everything you need to know about how to enjoy your vacation when you are pregnant.
Sure, your vacation may not look like it usually would… you won’t be sipping cocktails in the hot tub or going out for sushi, but you can still have a great time as a mom to be!
Are you celebrating a birthday or an anniversary while you’re away? Or maybe you just enjoy sipping on a fruity drink by the pool? Have a mocktail or two! That mockmosa may not bring on the giggles quite like the regular version, but you can still have some fun without the alcohol! If a drink in your hand gives you that vacation feeling then bring on the mocktails! Don’t forget to drink plenty of water!
Take this time to get a little rest and relaxation! If you are still working during your pregnancy, it may be a while before you get another chance to do nothing! Before you know it you will be chasing your little one around, so get some rest while you can. If you aren’t up for going out, stay in and get some sleep! Soon you may not have the option!
Don’t be afraid to speak up during your vacation. It can be easy to overdo it when you are out of your element and doing more activities than usual. If you aren’t feeling well or need to take a break, tell your travel companions. Trust me, they will understand! Are there things you want to do on your trip? Share that with your friends, this is your vacation too!
This is your chance to order everything on the menu! A pregnant vacation is the one time it’s acceptable to order the lasagna AND the tacos! You deserve to treat yourself while you are away, Mama! Maybe get wild and order dessert or take advantage of room service!
I don’t know about you but when I look good, I feel good! Get a cute swimsuit and maternity outfits to wear on your trip if that’s what puts you in the mood for vacay! If you don’t want to waste money on items you will only wear once check out Rent The Runway! You can rent any maternity items you need for special occasions and they have SO many gorgeous options!

Enjoy Each Other
Whether you are traveling with your spouse, family, or friends, take advantage of this time together! Soon you will have your hands full with your little bundle, and adults only time will be hard to come by!
It’s true, there are some things you can’t do when you are pregnant, but overall you can do what you normally would. You can still swim, dance, laugh, hike, and play! Do the things that you enjoy! Your pregnancy doesn’t have to hold you back!
For me it was nice to have some time away to actually process my pregnancy. When we are working all day it can be difficult to slow down and take it all in. Take advantage of this time for yourself and enjoy your pregnancy! I hope you are excited for your trip, and now know how to enjoy your vacation when you are pregnant! Your next trip will look more like this!
