    What great timing for this! We’re going to Disney with our 4yo and 29w bump in a few weeks. We haven’t been in 8 years. We’re excited for our daughter to experience it and we’ll enjoy what we can and not stress about doing it all. My daughter doesn’t like crazy rides anyway so we won’t miss much!

    Did you stick to the non-height restricted/preform-safe rides right away, or did you wait to cut back until you were further along?

    Also, I’ve noticed Derek doesn’t come with you to Disney-how come?

      Pretty much. I cut back right around 6-8 wks. From what I read, the danger with jolting rides is from the placenta detaching, which isn’t an issue until the end of the first trimester. However, ask any doctor and they’ll recommend stopping as soon as you know.

      Derek is not as big of a Disney fan as I am. While he’ll come on the rare occasion (I was able to get him to go in January and June last year), he’d prefer to stay at home.

    That should have said “preggo”- not preform! Stupid autocorrect!

    I’m in the uk so Disney available to me but I did love all your pregnancy updates involving disney world. Your little one will love the pictures when she’s a bit older 🙂

    I’m surprised people were asking about this. Your tips are just common sense for pregnant and nom-pregnant people. Stay hydrated, wear comfy clothes, etc. Do people forget these thins when they get pregnant? This could just be titled “Surviving Disney World” lol!

    I was 30+ weeks during my last Magic Kingdom visit. My only other suggestion to add is an extended break (preferably with a nap) during the middle of the day and returning when its a bit cooler. I actually didn’t have easy access to my hotel so we took an extended break by having lunch at the Grand Floridian and catching some much needed rest on those comfy lobby couches (obviously I didn’t nap there hahahaha but it was still restful mid day). I was actually able to get my feet up for a bit an it made the evening MUCH more enjoyable. 🙂

    I’d add to your snack tips that they don’t allow glass jars (like mason jars) in. I had packed trail mix in a couple small mason jars and had to throw the jars out. It probably never used to be an issue but now that people are trying to cut back on plastic use it’s good to note since glass containers aren’t usually cheap :).

    I think Air Conditioning is the best feature an attraction can offer when you’re pregnant in Florida. We went to a lot of the parks when I was preggo and that was my life saver.

    Hi. I came across this article on Flipboard while researching Disney World. Curious about your suggestions to wear comfortable clothes. … I see you in flip flops on your maternity photos at Disney? All suggestions I see say to wear good sneakers. Did you find flip flops have you enough support while on your feet walking most of the day? We went in May 2015 with my 2.5 yr old DD. My feet were spool tired (in sneakers). We plan to go back October 2016 when I’ll be 35 weeks preggo. I usually like flip flops but worried about all the walking we’ll do.

      My feet were incredibly swollen at the end of pregnancy, so the only thing that fit were flip flops! I remained pretty active during the pregnancy and was doing 1-2 mile walks every morning in flip flops, so my body was pretty used to it. I see do what’s comfortable for you.

    I hardly ever comment on blog posts, but seriously. Thank you for writing this and including the link to the book. I’m pregnant with my first right now (almost 13 weeks) and am already worrying about how pumping works at work. I’m lucky that at my job we actually have a “mothers’ lounge” for women to pump, but I still wondered about timing, what to do when I have meetings, etc. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Hahaha you really are a big fan of Disney arent you?

    I think walking around is great exercise too even at 38 weeks, but being in Singapore, I do not understand the heat that you experience over there, here we’re always either hot + humid or rain + humid =D

    That being said, I also am not a big fan of fun fairs and entertainment centres (even one of the most popular in the wold – Disney world)
