I'll be 3 weeks away from my due date at the end of April and we have a wedding to go to that is 4 hours away. Do you think my doctor will tell me not to go? It is kind of a big family deal, so just trying to plan ahead. I kind of already mentioned to my MIL and SIL that I probably won't be able to go and they were very rude to me about it. I don't have another dr appointment for 2 weeks, so thought I'd ask you all.

Do you have a high risk pregnancy? Are there any complications or do think a complication might arise? Is there a hospital close by to where you are going? Will you be able to get out and walk around to and from there? Most doctors don't recommend long travel after 7 months. However, if it is just 4 hours and you feel up to it and there is no complications and a hospital nearby, then I think you will be fine.

My brother got married 2 months before my twins were due. I didn't go to the wedding even though it was only 2 hours away. I was on bed rest for pre-term labor. The thing my doctor said was that you could go into labor at any time and, do you want to have a baby in the NICU near where the wedding is? My answer was 'no', so I didn't go.
I'll ask you if you'd be OK having your baby at a hospital where the wedding is or someplace en route? How you answer will help you make your decision and may also give people who question your absence a reason why you're not there.
