When to take your babymoon
There are certain restrictions on how far into your pregnancy you can fly and also specific months when you feel much better and can actually board a plane, says Catherine Goodstein, MD. “The first trimester is not ideal for many reasons, chief among those is the nausea that many women feel. Nausea and fatigue can sometimes persist into the early second trimester, and for that reason I’d say the ideal window for a babymoon would be 18 to 28 weeks of the pregnancy. After 28 weeks travel can become increasingly uncomfortable.” Another timely and important consideration is to avoid places that have cases of Zika or high of risk for Zika, namely Mexico and much of the Caribbean. Dr. Goodstein suggests checking out this map from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention before picking your destination.
