    We're heading to Disney soon and I'm 4 months pregnant. Any tips or advice on rides or ways to snack and stay hydrated?

    Hi Callie!

    Congratulations!  I am also expecting (6 months now) and was at Hollywood Studios yesterday.  It was HOT!!! 

    ALWAYS keep a bottle of water with you.  If the water gets warm, you can ask anywhere for a complimentary cup of ice to cool it down.  Bring your own snacks!  Pick out something ahead of time that you know you like.  Or you can do what I did and stop in one of the numerous snack shops and pick up something yummy.  I had a carrot cake cookie yesterday and it really hit the spot!  Sit down in the air-conditioning when you get tired and rest your feet.  You don’t need to purchase anything to sit in a counter-service restaurant to enjoy the cool air. 

    Read all of the warning signs for the rides.  They will tell you if expectant mothers should not ride.  See an indoor show while the rest of your party is on a ride you can’t go on or browse a shop and pick out an outfit for the new baby!  The main thing is take it easy.  If you feel like you are pushing yourself too far, slow down. 

    Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy!
