  • It's ok to travel if you have your doctor's OK. When you get past 36 wks, it's recommended that you don't get on a plane, bc the air pressure can cause you to go into labor (so I've heard). Road trips are OK as long as you stop every couple of hours and walk around and get some blood flow going.
