My husband and I are going to South Africa for 2.5 weeks next week and are doing a bit of travelling around. (We don't need vaccinations as staying in decent areas and booked nice hotels).
We are wanting to start trying for our first baby and have worked out unfortunately that I am ovulating whilst we are away (he is then away with work when we return to uk) We don't want to wait any longer and thought if I fell pregnant whilst on holiday I would only be a couple of weeks and it wouldnt make much difference... however I have been reading up on this and am a little confused/worried. I have read I shouldn't fly in the first 12 weeks, I could pick up harmful diseases from foods and I wouldn't be allowed to do any activities... I didn't realise the 4 weeks are so important - I almost get the impression I shouldn't do anything in the first 4 weeks. But then I keep thinking there are so many people out there who don't even realise they are pregnant after 4 weeks and carry on drinking, smoking, diving etc...
Can anyone give me some advice on this please? Should we postpone?
