eat where ever you see a lot of other diners, avoid the places with little patronage and therefore a low turnover of food.

Keep in mind that when pregnant you are at a higher risk of listeria.


I used to get massages in Bali when I was pregnant and found that it was better to just explain what felt 'comfortable' and the ladies were obliging and did their best to give you a great massage.

the only concern I would have is that you could pick up a virus from the food etc, I would be very careful with water and salads etc.

The usual precautions but just be a bit more cautious.

A nice relaxing holiday will be so great for the little ones head space as he or she grows

I had big problems with swollen feet when flying. Wear loose shoes on the flight, take some socks, and walk around as much as possible. Be aware that any enclosed shoes may not fit for a few days, so it may be worthwhile just taking open shoes with you. Also watch the uneven footpaths and open drains etc. It's amazing how much easier it is to fall over when preggers, even if you're taking care.

Have you ever swum when pregnant? That can be a bit of a hoot. Plus interesting when trying to get out of the pool. Enjoy!

I think Prana spa in seminyak does pregnancy massage package - expensive but worth it for the whole "spa" experience.

Maybe check with your OB,I actually wore the white stockings that you wear in hospital on my flight.I also went on TA and went through the top 20(for the area we were staying in) restaurants and if anybody reported on being sick we just didn't go to those restaurants just as a precaution.Yes, Prana Spa has a wonderful pregnancy package,check out their website,also I found that the girls where I was knew what to do massage wise when your pregnant anyhow.Have a wonderful holiday ...have a 'Mocktail' or '2'.

Thanks everyone for your advice... I've spoken to the doc and he said pretty much the same about the water and being careful about food.. I have visited Phuket many times and am guessing it's probably close to that. forms Darwin its only about 3 hr flight I think and will make sure I do the excerises on the plane... Can't wait..
