Tips for traveling while pregnant

Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you can't enjoy a vacation, whether it's domestic or on another continent.

"One advice among the many that expectant couples get is to travel one last time before baby arrives," states Boston.com. "Or, at the very least, go to the movies every weekend. The idea behind the instruction is that once baby comes, you'll likely not have the time, money or energy to go anywhere or do much. And if you do, it likely won't be just the both of you, at least for a few good years."

If you're pregnant and planning to go on vacation, consider these tips to ensure the health and safety of both you and your baby:

Consult your obstetrician – According to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the safest time to take a trip is during the second trimester, as that's when emergencies are least common. However, it's still important to check in with your obstetrician to see what he or she recommends.

Drink lots of water - It's easy to get dehydrated when you're in an airplane for an extended period of time or walking around a lot, so make sure you drink plenty of fluids.

Pay close attention to travel alerts - Traveling to a foreign country can be fine for pregnant women, but you'll want to keep an eye on travel alerts to make sure there aren't any potentially dangerous health issues to worry about.
