Heather also revealed she had woken up with "red blotches" on her skin. "Total pregnant life," she said. "One day my skin is perfect, the next day blotches and bumps."

"Family trips to Cabo are always a good idea 😎," the HGTV star, 40, wrote. "Staying in a villa with my entire fam and our kids and having a blast ❀️ Experiences like these are nothing without your family or close friends to share them with πŸ™ So if you need the El Moussa fam, we'll be here:)"

"Just missing @heatherraeyoung like crazy but doctors orders come first!!" he concluded the caption, mentioning his wife.

On Wednesday, Tarek posted another photo to Instagram with his two kids. "The three musketeers take Cabo! 😎 It's not the same without @heatherraeyoung but we're holding down the fort over here doing a whole lot of jet skiing, swimming, family dinners, and just having the best time," the Flip or Flop star wrote. "Enjoying every moment before it's back to work for me and back to school for the kids! ❀️"

"All this warms my heart I miss my love so so much," Heather commented on the photo. "Can't wait to kiss you tomorrow my love."

A rep for Heather told PEOPLE that the decision for Heather to skip the trip came out of an abundance of caution, to avoid risks such as Zika virus and food poisoning.

Heather shared with PEOPLE that her doctor told her, "It's not worth getting sick. Chances that you can avoid, you should. Unavoidable exposures are different."
