Vegas Part 1» Surprise Surprise

I’m doing something I normally do not do: travel while pregnant.

It is exhausting traveling while pregnant. You have to sit for hours, endure back pain, and have a being kick you at random times. Oh wait, I would experience that on any trip whether I’m pregnant or not.

It was a nice getaway from busy work and my kids! Yes, as parents, you need your time away from home, especially away from the kids. I think it’s best to connect with your spouse besides talking about what Kid 1 or Kid 2 did in school.

But my trip was not for fun. My husband and I decided to check out the nation’s largest lighting convention that so happened to be in Las Vegas this year. I haven’t been to Vegas in over 5 years and all I could think of was: where to eat!

We found great rates from MGM Grand. I believe there were promotions for rooms as low as $49 a night. It was unbelievable!

This only happened to me twice. First was at Disneyland’s Grand Californian and now MGM Grand. We got a room upgrade out of the blue.

Well this time, I think MGM Grand ran out of rooms and gave us a free upgrade. Check out our room.

EEEEKK!

Our jaws dropped to the floor when we entered the room.

Supposedly this room was called the Tower Spa Suite. We had quite a view from the 26th floor. The room was spacious with a King sized bed, sheer and blackout shades, and a 40″ Flat screen TV. The spa suite means the tub is an 8 jet jacuzzi. It was deep set and I thought it was heaven.


Me after a long day at the doctor’s office, work and plane flight. I look so pale. This pregnancy – no glow like my other two. So different.

Beautiful sunrise the morning after our arrival. Why did I wake up so early when I’m supposed to be on a “mini getaway?” Because in Houston, TX, it was supposed to be 8:30 AM, however in Las Vegas it was only 6:30 AM! Yes my body was so trained that I woke up way too early.

Not really a complaint, when this is actually the first sunrise my husband and I shared together (and we’ve been together for 12 years).

Hope you will stay tuned to Vegas Part 2 – Food Special.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.
