Advice for Pregnant Traveler

I'm going to be in town for a few days next week on a business trip and arranged to bring my wife along for the ride. She's never been to Chicago before, so she was pretty excited to spend a few days in the city while I attend meetings.

I intentionally wrote "was pretty excited" because she's now halfway through the first trimester with our second child. She feels awful, but hopefully can rally enough to enjoy some of the sites.

Does anyone have any advice for pregnant friendly attractions? The morning sickness and fatigue are pretty rough, but we're staying at the Amalfi, and she has a couple of things in mind. She's definitely interested in the Art Institute of Chicago, and was thinking about the Field Museum as well. I'm worried that she's going to get completely worn out walking around.

Since you're here for a few days, do one or two things each day. The busy tourist season is over. No need to rush. Crowds shouldn't be an issue. Both venues have plenty of places to sit and take a break.

Cabs are plentiful if she doesn't want to deal with taking a bus.
