Taking a baby moon vacation before the baby arrives seemed important to me, especially for first time parents who will be starting a brand new journey! For many families, this will be the last getaway you can share alone with your significant other!
My doctor told me that October should be the last month I travel during my pregnancy, so we planned a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for the end of October; The resort we stayed at was beautiful, right on the beach, and had so many fun activities to choose from. As it turns out, Hurricane Patricia came the day after we arrived. We spent most of our weekend in a shelter due to the concern of this being the largest hurricane yet! Obviously everything turned out okay and we are fine, but take this as a precaution, because nobody needs that kind of stress while they're pregnant. There was no way of knowing about this hurricane even the day before, however it was hurricane season.
Avoid any type of stressful situation by just assuming the worst could happen and making sure you are traveling to a safe part of the world during that part of the year! And, of course, make sure you have fun! Although, we went through a lot on our vacation, we also grew closer, learning to trust and rely on each other in time of crisis; the whole point of a baby moon is to spend that time growing together before you have your baby to bond over!
