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!!!

I was due Jan 18, 1995 and went home for Christmas 1994. I traveled 3 hours southwest of our home to our hometown. I had no issues. I do realize that most docs advise not to travel in your last month just in case. I also had an OB in our hometown as that is where our oldest had been born 3.5 years earlier.
