Pregnant Heather Rae Young skips out on family Cabo trip to avoid getting sick

Heather Rae Young decided not to join her husband Tarek El Moussa and his family on a trip to Cabo San Lucas after her doctor advised her against doing so.

The pregnant reality star revealed to PEOPLE that she remained at home so she wouldn’t be exposed to potential illnesses like the Zika virus and food poisoning.

‘It’s not worth getting sick. Chances that you can avoid, you should. Unavoidable exposures are different,’ she relayed to the outlet of her doctor’s advice.

In a post shared to her Instagram on Tuesday, Young appeared content with her decision to hunker down at her Orange County residence as she awaits the birth of her and Tarek’s first child.

‘Missing @therealtarekelmoussa and the kids so much while they’re in Cabo but trying to use this time to do some nesting and planning,’ captioned the star, who shared images of potential aesthetics for her unborn child’s nursery.

Though he’s having fun in the sun with the two children he shares with ex Christina Hall, Tarek made it known that Young was still on his mind in a post shared with his Instagram followers on Monday.

Including a snap with his tight knit vacation crew, the HGTV star admitted in the caption that he was missing his wife ‘like crazy but doctors orders come first!!’

Young first let her followers know that she’d made the decision to hang back in a post uploaded to Instagram on Saturday.

The Selling Sunset stat, 34, gave her husband and stepchildren a loving send off to Mexico, which she documented with a photo of the trio.

‘My loves heading to Cabo @therealtarekelmoussa,’ she captioned the picture of the former Flip Or Flop host standing alongside his daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, six, whom he shares with former c-host, ex-wife Christina Hall (born Christina Haack).

Dressed in a black sweatsuit sneakers and a baseball cap, Tarek, 40, wrapped his arms around his children for the photo that was seemingly taken just before catching their flight to Cabo.

Earlier that day, Young showed off her growing baby bump in a mirror selfie on her Instagram Story 

‘Hi baby boy,’ Young wrote across the photo that shows the reality star cradling her burgeoning bump.

The reality star, who learned last week that she’s expecting a baby boy, went with a sporty look dressed in a light brown sweatpants and a matching hoodie

She also wore a sports bra underneath that helped her showcase her belly, and pulled her long blonde locks back off her face and into a ponytail.

With the house empty for a few days, Young is focusing on her health and well-being, which includes getting in some exercise, girls time, and rest and relaxation.

Just a few hours earlier, she posted a photo of herself laying down and relaxing on a couch, where she revealed she’ll be having a ‘girl’s weekend’ wearing ‘sweats’ and indulging with ‘food & sleep’.

‘@therealtarekelmoussa, kids & family are in Cabo,’ Young continued, adding, ‘I stayed behind because of my Dr. Recommendations. Missing my [heart] and family.’

Her day started off early, hours before sending the family off to Cabo San Lucas. 

‘Morning Pilates session. Been up since 5:20 am,’ she wrote in another Insta-Story post showing her snapping the selfie while sitting atop one of the Pilates machines.

For her early morning workout, she again highlighted her growing baby bump by wearing black leggings with a black camouflage tank top that hugged her womanly curves.

‘Soon-to-be-mama hard at work! Swipe to see my growing belly at work,’ she began in the caption of a post showing the couple inside a home being renovated while filming for their new reality series The Flipping El Moussas. 

She continued, ‘It’s funny because they say when you get pregnant you lose your energy, you have morning sickness, and things become more difficult to do but I’m so lucky to feel 100% fine! I wake up early still, go to pilates, go to set and work all day, and feel amazing – I asked my sister and mom about it and they were the same way so maybe it runs in the family but definitely no signs of slowing down. 

The mother-to-be ended the post wby posing a question ‘to all the pregnant ladies or mamas out there: what was your experience??’ 

El Moussa and Young met during a fishing trip in July of 2019, and went on to tie-the-knot in a ceremony near Santa Barbara last October.
