Make sure you stop at a rest area every hour or so to take a potty break....
I took a 12 hour car ride at 34 weeks. Make sure you take frequent breaks to walk, and drink plenty of water. Yes, you'll have to pee a lot, but staying hydrated is necessary.
Make lots of stops and be sure to stretch. Also be sure to drink plenty of water and keep snacks on hand.
We were thinking about doing the same thing but decided against it. But take frequent stops, bring a pillow and snacks, and wear super comfy pjs for the ride.
Every few hours, I would stop and stretch to keep the blood flowing. Also, I would wiggle the toes while in the car. Keep hydrated too. Safe travels
