    Thanks! Someday I'll get on EE.....at least I don't know what I'm missing.

    Thanks for the pixie dust! We use Gin-Gin hard ginger candies....they work great for motion sickness and morning sickness.

    So I left off at Disney Eve…..

    Our flight was departing at 7:10am. The airport is a 45 minute drive from our house. The plan was to wake up at 4am, get ready and pack the last minute stuff. I had dressed Liam (DS) in the shirt I wanted him to travel in and pj bottoms for bed so that at 4:30 I could just change his diaper and put him in sweat pants. We figured that he’d keep sleeping in the car on the way to the airport. (Toddler Tip: We put Liam in Huggies Overnight diapers for the plane rides….worked like a charm! No leaks.) Here’s the flaw with my little plans. I sleep like carp when I’m pregnant, let alone the fact I was excited/stressed to be going to Disney. I think I managed 3-4 hours of sleep. The last time I woke up was 3am. I lay on the couch until 3:45am. Liam decided at 4am he wanted to get up too. Great. All I can say is thank god for 24 hour PBS Spout. He sat on the couch watching TV while DH and I continued to get ready.

    We were on the road by 4:30am and at the airport by 5:20am. We always do curbside luggage check-in when available….it was so early in the morning that we had to wait a couple minutes to the skycap to show up.

    DH brought the SUV to long term parking and Liam and I made our way to the food court to wait for him and for Liam to drink his milk that I couldn’t get thru security.

    Here’s Liam enjoying his breakfast milk.
    [​IMG]

    (I purchased Liam a seat on the plane because (1) DH suffers from air-sickness and would not be able to hold DS and (2) I think it’s a much safer way to travel)

    DH then joined us with his carry on and the car seat. I asked DH where the stuff giraffe that Liam travels with was and that I had attached a modified tether to? (See PTR for my craftiness) No giraffe…..”He didn’t know” it was supposed to come. Um….Hello??? It’s the giraffe Liam travels with AND it has the tether I made for vacation attached to it. I had a mild hissy fit and then let it go, nothing I could do about it at this point.

    Next up….getting thru TSA security with 3 carry-ons, 1 car seat, 1 stroller, 1 311 bag of liquids, 2 adults, 1 toddler and 1 bag of baby food/juice to declare. Sounds like fun doesn’t it?

    If anyone is curious, the baby at 14 weeks is currently the size of a lemon and weighs 1 ½ ounces! And I’m starting to feel it fluttering around every once in a while.

    Ugh. Travelling while pregnant. And with a toddler. How much do I admire you right now!

    And I know the joy of getting all that stuff through security, believe me. Looks like so far you're off to a good start! I can't wait to read more. :goodvibes

    Congrats on the addition to your family. I don't envy you trying to get through the airport with all that stuff AND being pregnant. I have trouble just with myself most of the time. I'm loving your report. I can't wait for more!

    I would have thrown a hissy fit about the giraffe, too!

    Liam enjoying his breakfast milk -- ahhhh!!!!

    Flutterings? I loved those! It was my favorite part of being pregnant!

    I'm beginning to think you're Superwoman, :worship: and I bet Superwoman makes it through security just fine!

    :welcome:

    He did OK without the giraffe but as for the flight......:rolleyes1

    Thanks!

    Traveling in the first trimester is much easier than the second trimester like I did in 2007.

    Thank you and welcome.

    I had pared it down to as little as I thought I could....now I'd carry on even less.

    The giarffe thing wouldn't be the only time in the trip where something would be forgotten because I didn't specifically tell DH to bring it/get it.

    :welcome:
    No Superwoman here....just super organized.

    I stole Turkey Mike from another DISer so feel free to steal it from me!

    I SO feel that pain... last January we traveled to Puerto Rico with two children under two and two tweens- the amount of carry on luggage alone was mind boggling! :rotfl:
