Feb holiday for pregnant lady - ideas welcome!

Helloooo, hope someone can give me some suggestions! I'm expecting our first baby, and assuming everything stays okay between now and then, we're looking to go away somewhere nice and warm in around February time when I'm well into my second trimester, for our last 'couple' holiday (sniff! :()

I am a bit stuck for knowing where to go - up until now we've done lots of far-flung places, but obviously my criteria for a holiday have changed now I've got a passenger on board!!!

My criteria really are:
- Ideally somewhere warm to hottish (25 degrees plus)
- Somewhere where I'm not likely to get food poisoning from the water
- 6-7 hour flight tops, less if possible.
- Somewhere where, if something WERE to go wrong, there would be a decent standard of medical care.

Any ideas gratefully received. Thanks!! :) Also, if anyone has any tips for travelling whilst 5 months pregnant, I'd love to hear them.
:love: I :heart2: Boots :love:

    I don't think you can go wrong with the canaries or madeira to be honest. You don't want to go somewhere too hot as it gets unbearable (from experience)
    Make sure you get good insurance cover and sort out your E111 before you go
    Have a good trip
    I haven't got one!
