Pregnancy Board!!

Hi all! Thought it'd be a nice place to meet other pregnant disney fans!

Just a few questions to get us started!

How far along are you? Do you have an idea for when you want to take the LO to Disney for the first time? When's your baby shower?

I'm 19w2d and pregnant with our first - a girl! We are so excited. It took us a while to conceive and finally did after having an HSG (clearing tubes) and on clomid for the 1st month.

Our plan is to take her to Disney next October, when she's about 8 months old - it also coincides with my 30th birthday. shower is November 12th! Just gave my friend & mom (who are putting it on) the invite list. Should be fun, though they wouldn't do it the way I wanted (Jack & Jill/ guys & girls). I don't have that many girlfriends really (most women invited are DH's family), but adding in the guys brought the # attending from 30 to 60 and we've had a christmas party with 65 ppl before but never had 60 people all crammed into 1 room - so I think it'd be really tight. But I'm kinda bummed about it nonetheless. I'm due Feb 6th, so it's not like there's a chance of an outside baby shower. Oh well! Looking forward to it anyway.

I'm almost 11wks due 4/6. It's our third baby, and we're hoping for a healthy baby - don't care about boy or girl. The plan is go to Disney in January 2013 when baby is 9 months old. I did not want to bring a baby younger than 6 months, so this is perfect. DDs will be just turned 5 and 3.5, which are IMO totally magical ages for Disney.

Love this! I'm 25 weeks, due December 27th. This is our first, a boy. Planning to take him to WDW next summer or fall, he will be 6-10months. Still deciding on what the best age will be! My baby shower is Oct. 9, it's Winnie the Pooh inspired. I made the invitations I will have to share. Little guy's room will also be Winnie the Pooh. DH and I went to WDW this year just a week after we found out I was pregnant, what a fun way to celebrate! We had the trip already booked about 6 months prior. We had a great time but if I had it to do over again, I wouldn't plan a trip during the first trimester, definitely had some morning sickness issues Without being too graphic, the best story involved me running off of the bus when it parked at Animal Kingdom one day, straight for a bush right outside the main gate. Luckily not too many people were around, but not exactly the kind of magical memories we usually have from our trips haha.

Anyway, We wanted to buy the baby a present when we were in WDW but had a hard time finding anything that wasn't gender specific, and obviously we didn't know yet if we were having a boy or a girl. So we settled on a giant stuffed Pooh bear and a Pooh storybook collection. So that inspired our nursery!

Thanks for starting this thread and congrats to everyone!!

Hi! What a great idea! I'm just about 8wks pregnant with our second LO. My son will be 2 1/2 when the new baby arrives. We had planned on making our first trip to WDW with our son in February, but now we're going to wait until next Feb. Carter will be 3 1/2 and our baby will be about 10 months. Perfect ages! For those of you who are planning first trips around 8-10 months- that is the perfect time! I wish we had been able to go with our son at that time. They are so easy at that point and not wanting to get out of the stroller like they are a few months later. Good luck to you all!!

Hey girls! Congrats on your pregnancies!!

Oooh baby themes!! Love winnie the pooh! Ours is an Under the Sea theme, which is also the baby shower theme. We have a number of finding nemo things - and if anyone is interested - we found the cutest green finding nemo onesie & bib at Disney last October! Totally gender neutral and it has the seagulls on it and says "Mine mine mine". So cute! It was the only gender neutral thing we found while there. Of course, we weren't preggo at the time, but we had planned to start trying during (TMI) that trip, hoping for a Disney baby LOL. Didn't work, but oh well...

Sorry to hear about the morning sickness!! I was really lucky - 1st trimester was just basically filled with food aversions. I didn't really want to eat anything, but nothing made me sick. I travelled to SC for a wedding and was worried about getting sick on the plane but was fine (at around 6 weeks).

How are you two doing in your first trimesters?

I am 13 weeks and am due around 03/18. I was hoping to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon this year, but I am pretty sure that won't be happening as I will be eight months pregnant. We are not planning our next Disney trip until sometime in 2013 most likely when the baby is a year or a year and a half, because of all the vacation and sick time my husband and I will have to use for maternity/paternity leave. We are also hoping to move closer to our families which will delay our trip. We are hoping to go before our child turns 2.

Hey, can I join the party too?

Imagineer5 - It looks like we're due about the same month or pretty close!

Due Date is 2/11/2012 with our 4th (and pretty sure our last) so somewhere between 18 and 19 weeks.

We're thinking of taking our LO to Disney World or Disneyland sometime towards the end of May so around 3 months. With our situation, my DH's work pays for us to fly to the continental U.S. every three years and that will be this summer. We want to do something special for the older kids since their lives will have been thrown into chaos with the new baby. Who knows if it'll work, but it sure is fun to plan and dream!!

Hi all! I am 16 weeks pregnant with our 2nd. I am due 2/27/11 and we are not finding out the gender this time. This is our Disneyland souvineer baby, as we "picked it up" when we took our then almost 9 month old in early June. We were celebrating our purchase of DVC. So, they will be about 17.5 months apart.

We are going to Disneyland again in about a month, so I will be 20ish weeks pregnant and my son will be 13 months. We plan to go again next December, when they are 25 and 10 months. We are west coasters, so we do Disneyland a lot more often.

Congrats to everyone else This board will be fun! I am pregnant with our 3rd girl (boy that's going to be fun later!) I always lose track of # of weeks ROFL... about 25 weeks I think. We are taking my older 2 DDs (4 and 2) to Disneyland in a couple of weeks so that oughtta be interesting, to say the least... Then we had to cancel our Christmas/New Year's trip to WDW and first trip on DVC points to our home resort (bummer!) since she's due Dec 29th.

Her first Disney trip will be a big one... We have B2B cruises (so 14 nights total) booked next May so she'll be about 4.5mo old . Maybe we'll tack on a couple of Disneyland days before that. After that we may do the Food and Wine at WDW but definately will do our Christmas/New Year's trip so she'll be almost a year for that

I'm 29 weeks pregnant with our first baby - a girl! Due date is 12/1. We have a Tinker Bell themed nursery - thanks to Walmart for the very affordable and cute Tink stuff. Baby shower is actually on Saturday! We are planning to take the baby to WDW next December - right around her 1st birthday!

I'm pretty newly pregnant - around 5-6 weeks, but I don't know for sure because I'm still breastfeeding DS and haven't had a period since October 2009. Need to go for a dating ultrasound next week.

Don't do it! I ran a half marathon at 35 weeks pregnant and it was MUCH worse than labor and delivery. 3:48 minutes (my previous longest HM was 2:24) of pelvic pressure, swollen feet, numb hands, heartburn, lower back pain, not being able to take a full breath, and having to PEE! UGH!!
