Kate Middleton and I have a lot in common. We’re both English Roses with charming British accents, we both went to St. Andrews University and we both married our Prince Charmings. Ok – so that’s about where our similarities end.
The Duchess of Cambridge is currently on a whirlwind tour of New York City with Prince William. In her fifth month of pregnancy, this could be quite a taxing time for her what with all the appointments, meetings and photo opps just when she may feel like putting up her feet instead and having a cuppa. I was five months pregnant when I did my own whirlwind tour of South America for work – five countries in nine days. Even though the itinerary was pretty intense, I managed to get through it all, enjoy the adventures, the amazing food and even altitude sickness. But I know how demanding traveling for work while pregnant can be, especially when your days start in the hotel breakfast room with colleagues and don’t finish until late at night after dinner and drinks. With all pregnant moms and Princess Kate in mind, here are some of my tips for traveling when pregnant.
