Before having kids, your travel worries involve things like forgetting your passport or losing your luggage. But when you have a bun in the oven, everything changes. Previously minor travel decisions (i.e. window or aisle seat) become vital ones (obviously, aisle seat. There will be many pee breaks!). Traveling with a baby on board can make boarding a plane, or boat, or bus, more difficult, but it shouldn't derail you from taking a much-deserved babymoon or any type of trip. That's why we've got 7 ways your traveling changes when you're pregnant to help you prepare for the trip ahead.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you consult their world travel map before traveling while pregnant.
Once you settle on a safe destination, here are 7 things you should keep in mind — whether traveling by air, water, or land — to make your trip as pleasant, and safe, as possible with a baby on board.
