These pictures sum up my travel journey during my pregnancy!
Yup, I still travel while pregnant ;). Every single month.
A lot of people in my country, Indonesia, are hesitant to travel while they’re pregnant. Even my relatives and families always comment, “Please stop traveling, you will be too tired. You should rest and just stay at home”.
For Indonesians, there are so many things we’re not supposed to do, especially for pregnant women. To name a few: you’re not supposed to fly – especially when you’re 1-3 month pregnant, you should stay at home during the “Maghrib” time (sunset) and the rest of the evening, you’re not supposed to go ups and downs the staircase, you have to be well rested (meaning: don’t go anywhere, just stay at home!), you’re not supposed to walk far, and many many more.
In the contrary, whenever I meet my friends from overseas, they recommend me to keep moving, be active, and walk a lot.
Confusing, isn’t it?
So, in the end, I just choose to do things that I love. I believe, if I’m happy, then the baby inside my womb will also be happy. Right? 😉
To sum up, here’s my footprints with the baby in my womb:
April 2014 – traveling to Flores, then Tanzania (Africa)
May 2014 – exploring Morocco (Africa)
And I’m happy to say, I have a healthy pregnancy, even though I travel so much!!!
So, pregnant ladies, who say you can’t travel while you’re pregnant? 😉 Just do whatever makes you happy, and you’ll be fine!! ^^
ps: My baby girl was born on December 1st, 2014. She’s all healthy :).
