Scared about vacation while pregnant!!

User - posted on 08/18/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




I haven't gone to Arizona with them in years cause of custody issues but now that I'm married I'm free to do whatever. Where we are going is 4 hours away and I will be 35 weeks and 1 day pregnant when we go. I'm worried about my water breaking early or having some kind of problem. How likely is it that something bad will happen? I'm scared and my husband decided he doesn't want to go since he isn't much of a water person. It was either I go this time or I wait another year and I can't do that. I've been going with them since I was just a newborn so It's my dream to go back. I would only be gone from the August 24th to the 27th this month and my due date is September 25th so I wasn''t sure if it was that big of a deal. Help!!!

My last 6 weeks (I think) my doctor advised me not to travel long distances. I wouldn't risk it if I were you unless you are ok with delivering with a different doctor. I would also make sure you have a copy of your medical records for this pregnancy as a just in case. My doctor always made sure to update my paperwork everytime I went so I always had it on me.

My doctor told me not to travel more than two hours away in my third trimester. you are 35 weeks...I wouldn't go if I were you.
