Rewind to September of 2011. I find out I'm pregnant.
Ok, so no big deal. I had always wanted to go to WDW during the Christmas holiday season and my husband said he would FINALLY go with me (he's a Disney hater - please shed a tear for me). Just because I'm pregnant doesn't mean I won't have a good time. Sure, I won't be able to ride some rides. I probably won't be able to eat some foods due to the extreme nausea. Yes I know, I won't be able to drink alcohol...wait...WHAT? It will still be fun, right?
Turns out - it still WAS fun. I'll be honest, not as fun as it could have been but I will take it! If it means not going at all, I will take it.
So 2012 was the year of no Disney. New baby, new paranoia about leaving the baby, new paranoia about taking the baby on a trip that far away from home. So needless to say...no Disney.
Fast forward to December of this year. I am going to Walt Disney World and also child-less!!!! There is just one little problem. I am currently as we speak trying to become pregnant...again. Craziness I know.
Now I don't want to call that a problem. It's a beautiful thing really. But I can't quite seem to wrap my mind around the fact that my next trip might possibility also be another trip without rides, without food, without BOOZE! I'm not sure if you've noticed, but my Disney bucket list has quite a few alcoholic experiences just waiting to get crossed off. This bucket list ain't completing itself folks!
The kicker really is the planning of it all. I want to go on the Wild Africa Trek something terrible! Can't book it - might be pregnant. I want to go on a Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage. Hesitate to spend the money on it - might be pregnant and ralph over the side of the boat. These are just a couple of the things I've been contemplating since the early planning stages of our vacation. I just have to wait and hope that these experiences all might still be available last minute.
I realize I might sound like a terrible person right now. I want to be pregnant very much and will be thrilled if I become so between now and December. I won't cry and say, "Now I can't drink alcohol." I take that back, it's extremely possible that I will cry and say that. Ok, I won't cry and say, "Now I can't go on rides!" Yes yes, I like that much better. What I'm getting at is how difficult it is to have things so up in the air for me when it comes to planning a Disney vacation.
These are just some of the things I've had to think about these last few months since this trip became a reality. The unknown is so crazy sometimes. I'd love to hear from anyone else out there who has been through this same predicament/wonderful amazing blessing of life!
