Hello from Florida!
I’m here on a two-week long vacation visiting my sister-in-law and her family (they are awesome!) and going to Universal Studios. And yes, we went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and yes, that place is amazing. And completely crowded. But eating Cornish pasties and wandering through the castle and stumbling across the pensieve and the Mirror of Erised in the castle and staring through shop windows and going into Ollivanders–well, on the whole, it was a magical experience.
I did throw-up on the plane ride here (note to self: always bring a change of clothes with you on a carry-on bag. I ended up wearing my husband’s sweater), and every ride in Universal says that expectant mothers should not ride. Even the ones that don’t move much. I ignored them, though I didn’t go on any large roller coasters. But the second trimester is really awesome–I am now eighteen weeks pregnant, and I feel great, and my tummy is growing.
More on vacation later, with pictures, when I get them downloaded.
