  • I tried, but I get stir crazy. So, I called my mom or sister to take me places. I can't stand to be cooped up at home.

  • yep at 35-36 weeks I tried not to go further than the grocery store/work etc... I went to a UFC fight/party at a friends house right at 35 weeks but i made my friend not drink so she could drive me if I happened to go into labor (I had him at 39 weeks)

  • I'm 41 weeks. I still go where ever. I don't stay close to home at all.

  • I was baby sitting my abuelita at MILs house, but I wasn't too far away from home. Half the time was at their home, and half was at mine. I DID put off that massage I wanted to get because it was too far away, and I was too close to D-day

  • Well, I don't go on long trips, but anywhere within a couple of hours of home is fine with me.

  • I went any where I wanted to go even though I was suppossed to be on bed rest but like I told the doctor how can I stay on bed rest when I have 3 kids to look over and have to pay my bills because my boyfriend got lost coming home one night and ended up with 2 females instead of coming back to his pregnant fiancee at the time. needless to say he has been gone ever since and hasn't seen or paid a dime for our son.
