The cramped spaces, the uncomfortable pressure of altitude changes, loud noises and too many people – welcome to airline travel. Now, dealing with all of this stress, add an infant to the mix and you’re wondering how you’re going to make it to your destination with your sanity in tact. I recently had to fly across country with my infant alone, let me tell you, I wasn’t ready.
So it was quickly approaching the time for me to decide what I was going to do while my husband was deployed. Would I stay in California or would I move back in with my parents in North Carolina until my husband returned? I was leaning towards stay in California until one morning I woke up and just knew I was pregnant. Sure enough the test was positive and I ended up getting horrible morning sickness, actually it was hyperemesis gravidarum but that’s another story. I knew I would need help the rest of the pregnancy and with the new baby (boy was that a good decision, read my birth story here).
