Disneyland and pregnancy - A good combination?

I told you there would be the odd post that would involve trips to Disney Parks. I hope it doesn't disappoint.

So, my husband and I have an upcoming trip planned to Disneyland Paris. I must point out that I am currently 27 weeks pregnant, and thus have entered my final trimester of pregnancy (Yikes!). 

I love Disney and the Disney Parks (that I've been to) and always jump at the chance to be there. So, in January of this year, I tried to organise a big family trip to Disneyland Paris, which resulted in my husband and I taking two of my youngest siblings (my youngest sister is 9 and my youngest brother will be 7, whilst we are away). So compared to other trips to the parks that we make, this one will be somewhat different in that we are taking two small(ish) children. Whilst I'm at it, I will note that my youngest sister is diagnosed as being on the ASD pathway and so can struggle in new surroundings.

Anyway, since we found out that we were expecting, back in July, part of me felt apprehensive about taking this trip whilst being pregnant. To most, this would perhaps seem like an unreasonable amount of apprehensiveness on my part, however, my journey to get pregnant was not the easiest of rides, in which there was a lot of heartache. I'll make a post about that in the future.

As I was saying, Disneyland and pregnancy... I'd love to hear about some of your experiences and how you felt about being pregnant whilst in a Disney park. I know I'm going to have to take more breaks than I would normally do, and I'll probably be eating/spending way more than I would usually; what with all of the cute baby products as well as demanding to be fed more often than not due to the constant threat of 'hangry-ness'.

Whilst we are at the park, we will be celebrating and welcoming in the New Year, and what a year I'm hoping for in 2018! I can't think of a more perfect way to welcome in the New Year, than spending it in one of my favourite places with the prospect of what is due to come in 2018. 

I have spent New Years Eve and Day in Disneyland Paris before, and it was so perfect that I couldn't pass the opportunity to do it again. I just hope my SPD plays ball and doesn't cause me a huge amount of pain. To add, I was diagnosed with SPD, quite early in my pregnancy. For those of you who don't know, SPD stands for Symphysis pubis dysfunction, that can cause a lot of pain for pregnant women. 

I will, of course, update on my experience of going to Disneyland whilst pregnant. 

Thanks lovelies.
