  • If I had to travel... I would otherwise I would pass. Take along plenty of pillows and a comfy blanket. Stop often and get out and walk to prevent blood clots and try to have some fun. good luck

  • I would not advise it, but if you do make sure that you make plenty of stops to walk around. Also, wear comfy clothes and bring a pillow.

  • it will be fine as long as every thing is ok with you and baby, just do what evry one else is saying with stoping and walking and be comfy. I am 30 weeks along and im going on the road with my husband and our 1 year old in a semi truck for 3 weeks so as long as your safe and a ok to go by doc, it should be fine....

  • i drove from pennsylvania to louisiana when i was 29 weeks pregnant and I had no problems... i made my boyfriend stop a lot to pee and grab food but other then that i was comfortable. I prefered to drive though because sleeping wasnt really in the cards with my big belly but the 18 hour trip was actually a great bonding experience for us
