    Need some traveling tips!
    My husband and I are traveling to Maui on Saturday. I will be 16 weeks 1 day, and I'm just a bit nervous about the flight. The travel time should take about 14 hours with a couple of short layovers between flights. I know I should get up and walk around at least once an hour, but I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to keep myself occupied, other than reading. I just about went crazy on a 6 hour flight, so I'm really worried that I will stress myself out. The flight home hopefully won't be as bad because we will leave around 4:15 Hawaii time (8 or 9pm our local time) and we won't get home until 11:30 the next morning. Hopefully I will be able to sleep! Anyway, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Do you have a laptop you can take to play some games?
    Or if you haven't already you can start a pregnancy journal and start it off with when you first found out you were expecting, mabey that would take up a little time.

    Flights that are this long typically have a movie. So that can occupy a bit of your time. Also, you could go to your local library and get some books on tape. If you just close your eyes and listen - the time will fly by (no pun). We do this on long car trips that can last 14 hours and it just doesn't seem so bad.

    All those were excellent suggestion. I also "read" audiobooks on long trips (and while I work) and it makes the day whiz by. May I recommend Memoirs of a Geisha... very good book.

    I also like to bring those puzzle books with me, and do the crossword puzzles and what not.

    Those are all such fantastic ideas! Thanks so much! I think I'll be going to the library to get some audio books, then to the store to get some yarn. I completely forgot that I know how to knit! LOL
