3hr Car trip while pregnant?

Im 7mo pregnant, i have had a good pregnancy so far. But now im starting to feel every bit of 7mo. pregnant. I do "ok" in the car, but whats your opinion. Should I stay home this weekend..or stick it out and hope everything will be OK.

P.S Family is going deer hunting, I know I cant hunt, but I think I will still have fun hanging around in the camper etc...

  • I did a 7 hour trip while pregnant and it wasnt a big issue. Just stop when you have to pee, and when you feel sore or anything.

  • you should check with your dr to be sure, depends on how far away from medical care you will be

  • You should be fine. Just be sure you keep hydrated. And don't try to "hold it" if you have to pee even a bit stop at the next stop.

  • It depends, do you get car sick?? With both my pregnancies I got car sick really easily. So If that was me Id stay home. But If it wasnt for the motion sickness Id go.

  • If you WANT to go, then go. Just plan to leave a little early in case you need a bathroom/walking/milkshake break. If you'd rather stay home, then you can absolutely skip it and not feel bad for it at all. In the third trimester, using baby to get out of things you'd rather not do is just one of the perks amid the massive amounts of annoyances.

  • That should be fine. I did 5 hours at 8 1/2 months. Just take pee breaks.

  • I say it all depends on how you feel on the day ya'll are going to leave.
