I've got lots to share from our cruise so I thought it would be easier on the eyes to break it up into a few parts.
First of all. The day before we left for the cruise I had a check up and got the all clear from Dr. J to resume normal activity and to stop progesterone the day before we set sail. We were thrilled.
On Thursday, we made sure we were all packed. Mark worked half a day and I did my best to ready the house for Papa & Grandmere to watch the kids. But I felt nasty nauseous the whole day. Not fun. We persevered and that afternoon set out on a six plus hour drive to get to port by 1 the next day. But, not before realizing that since I was pregnant, we had to have a letter from Dr. J stating that I was okay to travel and how many weeks, etc, I was. A quick call before we left and an amazing office and trip in to town, we were set.
Obviously, we stopped for the night since it was only a ten hour drive. We drove several hours and made it to Cocoa Beach. We also took some good advice and stopped at a rest station to grab the hotel coupon books. We settled on the $50 chain hotel that we've used before and offered a continental breakfast.
This is what we got:
Seriously, even our pillows were made for small people.
In case you are wondering, the next day the nausea was still there. I think I rode the entire trip with a pillow on my lap and a bag on top to "catch" anything should I lose my lunch.
