  • find the nearest Hotel to stay in... just kidding I have no serious advice except make sure you find a comfy air or foam mattress to sleep on and a nice comfy chair to sit in.

  • How pregnant are you? I went camping at 36 weeks, and for the most part was fine. Bring a big cozy chair that you know is comfy for you, and a super comfy air mattress, and make sure you have everything you need. Other than that you should be fine! Bring lots of water and stay hydrated!! When I went camping it ended up pouring down rain, flooding our site and tent... I went home at around 11 pm!!! I will not camp in the rain that prego!!! :) Have fun!

  • yes...I went camping for the first time ever while I was pregnant with my youngest. I suggest an air isn't the best but it is better than sleeping on the ground in a sleeping bag...just throw the sleeping bag on top, DH and I took 2 sleeping bags and zipped them together on top of a full size air mattress we got for like $20 at Walmart. They also sell pumps pretty cheap too. Hope you have tons of fun and be sure to wear sunscreen...I got burnt to a crisp because I didn't make sure I keep re-applying.

  • Bring carbs and protein... and remember your mood for food can change in heartbeat, pack backups.
