We're going on a Cruise!!!

After much thought on the matter, we have decided to go on the cruise. I really appreciate all of your advice on the matter and I'm glad to hear that so many of you are traveling out-of-the-country even later than I will be. My doctor has given me the thumbs up since my pregnancy isn't high-risk. Even though it's hard to convince myself of that considering what we've been through.

So, I booked it with the travel agent tonight. We did put insurance on it for the 1st time ever just in case we need to cancel. Even though it's only 4 weeks away.

We are leaving from Orlando, Florida. We stop in CocoCay, Bahamas; St. Thomas, Virgin Islands; and St. Marteen, Netherlands Antilles. I'm REALLY excited to go to the last two (I've been to CocoCay) and I'm excited for Aaron to go on a cruise since he's never been.

Oh, and I've finally been feeling little Gil move around a ton this weekend. (S)he kicked hard enough that Aaron even felt it this morning! What an incredible feeling. I am continuously reminded how blessed I am to be incubating this sweet little baby.


  1. YAYYYY! A cruise!!! Very exciting. I am so jealous, never been on a cruise. Lived in Hawaii for awhile, but I'm really anxious to get my toes in the sand again! haha Are you getting a cute preggo bathing suit. My friend had a really cute polka dot one, and I thought it was the cutest thing ever. She felt like a whale, but I thought she looked perfect! :)

  2. Oh how fun!! I'm so excited for you. I think you will have an amazing last time before baby comes trip. It sounds amazing. I'm so jealous =)

  3. So I think I saw your hubby at the Redbud today. I think you were with him but I didn't get a good look at your face? I kept thinking,"Where do I know him from?". If it wasn't you guys then he has a twin running around! Have fun on your cruise!!

  4. I'm so excited for you - and JEALOUS! I want to come on your cruise!!! =) It's the perfect thing to do, you'll have a fun, relaxing time and come back ready to be a mommy. (not that you're not already know what I mean)
    Yay for kicks from baby!!! It sure is reassuring to know they're in there doing their thing...And I hear it just gets more and more powerful! Hooray!

  5. Fantastic news....a cruise and kicks!!! Isn't life great!!!! xox

  6. Hey! Where's my 21 week picture??

  7. I'm not sure what's better - a cruise or a wiggling, kicking baby. Wait - how about a wiggling, kicking baby ON a cruise? You are living the good life.

  8. I've never been on a cruise...we were suppose to go for our 5 year anniversary but G will be in OCS. I'm glad you decided to go and yay on the baby moving!
