If your doctor allows, I would really advise you to Croatia or Montenegro. Firstly, there is very short flight, and secondly, there is the sea, and sand, and pine ... Air - it's a miracle!


Report: on the weekend returned from vacation. I went to Yevpatoria in Crimea. Rested from 18 to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Sunbathing under a parasol, bathing, was eating the fruit, in general, feel great! We spent a great time and returned home tanned, rested and happy!


Recently, the whole family went to the Crimea, rest nearwith Yalta. That's cool! My condition at first was not very good - morning sickness, swollen feet, crushed depression ... and on vacation all this forgotten. Before lunch did not get out of the sea, and in the afternoon until late at night walking. At night, I slept like a log. In the morning I am feeling great. Pregnancy does not feel his. Only the baby did not let itself be forgotten. In general, I am delighted. Although the ride was very afraid because the car went. But even this move has transferred very well.


In Crimea, an excellent health resort for expectant mothers - inYevpatoriya, Yalta. There and gymnastics for pregnant women, and psychological training and much more. In Evpatoria, of course, affordable prices, in Yalta - will be more expensive.


Turkey - is the best option. You just need to choose the quiet family hotel with good service. There are plenty of beautiful hotels, a lot of greens, swimming pools, good food and service in hotels.


Much depends on the duration of pregnancy and your condition. In September, we rested in northern Greece. A remarkable journey - a mild climate, warm sea and very welcoming and friendly people.


I fly to Turkey from 21 to 22 per week. The trip was well endured, rest - it is unforgettable! I do not want to impose their views, but if the pregnancy proceeds without any complications, you should not cheat yourself negative thoughts. I'm home now Ryazan region feel more suffering to the local smog. And I probably overload, more in urban buses suffered, than in an airplane.

Vehicles during pregnancy

So, you have decided on a place of rest. On what to take a trip? At this point, note the following important points:

  1. Ride the best by car or fly in an airplaneThat the trip was not too long andtiring. Railroad, certainly not the best option. Travel by train is not always beneficial to the health of expectant mothers: the constant shaking, long duration of the path.
  2. If you decide to go by car, Try to make regular stops forTo walk, to stretch their legs in the fresh air and eat - this will reduce your stress from moving. Think carefully about travel time, and in the event that night finds you on the road, then pre-select a hotel or a hotel, where you can stop and spend the night quietly.

  3. If you do decide to go by train, Be sure to provide yourself the bottom shelf and a comfortable bed. Under no circumstances can not risk the health of the future baby and climb to the top bunk. It is dangerous at any stage of pregnancy.
  4. However, if you are a lover of quiet and peaceful holiday, you do not have to go somewhere, race and fly. As practice shows, a lot of future moms prefer quiet and comfortable stay in the country or in the country.

Comments from the forums on the future mothers:


Almost all the time on the sixth, seventh and eighthmonth of pregnancy, I spent my parents out of town and on the river. There I finally learned how to swim and loved since I pre-pregnancy I had turned bad and a belly in the water was somehow easier. By the way, when I swam, swam, too, the baby in the belly with me - gently moved arms and legs. So the choice of vacation spots, I think it depends on the condition and mood.


Maybe I'm a coward, but somewhere far away from the nativeHouse during pregnancy would not venture to go. Especially for all sorts of sea-beaches, where there is a risk of catching any infection (during pregnancy increases the likelihood of such), or overheat in the sun. Personally, I prefer to stay at home: go to the pool, walk in the park, go to the theater, museums, go on courses for pregnant women. In general, I always find things to do!
