Roxy 1. Don’t let the word “babymoon” define your trip. A babymoon can also be a bucket list trip, too. We planned ours based on places we’ve always wanted to visit, or go back to, and knew would be harder to get to after becoming a family of 4. You too, Oscar! After all was said and done we did 12 cities and 6 countries in 10 days in this order!
3. Babymoons can sound frivolous, after all travel should not be taken for granted, but think of it as time to celebrate your partnership and to cherish the togetherness with your spouse before becoming a new family. So go on fancy dates, write each other love notes, kiss in public, and make all of the heart eyes! Some of my favorite memories from the trip are giving up to bath robes in Barcelona (11th city) on a Friday night and skipping a reserved fancy dinner to eat ice cream in our room while playing Alan's Spotify country station for baby who I hadn't felt kick in awhile. For the record, baby likes sugar and Thomas Rhett!
4. Timing is so important! Most women, myself included, will experience new pregnancy symptoms like overwhelming fatigue and nausea in the first trimester, a surge of energy in the 2nd and then discomfort in the 3rd. Go for the 2nd! It honestly felt great to be so active while seeing and doing new things with Alan. I just had to make sure to front load or back load water since bathrooms can pose a problem when running around new cities!
5. If you can’t drink your calories, why not eat them! Food taste extra delicious when you’re pregnant (hopefully you’re not experiencing morning sickness!) so instead of feeling left out at cocktail hour plan some of your trip around delectable cuisine. We intentionally chose a cruise known for its fancy smancy restaurants and equally fancy buffets so while everyone was having a big glass of red or a stiff martini (yum and yummmm), I enjoyed dishes I certainly couldn’t make at home myself and all the sugar a pregnant girl could wish for!

Hi Roxy! Love your posts and style! What cruise line did you all decide on for your trip?
