My hospital is 1.25 hours from my house. I travel there 1-2 times a week for appts and will go down when I'm in labor...



It's totally safe!

Yes it's fine. Maybe get out walk around a little once you get there if you feel like it.

If I avoided a 30 min drive while I was pregnant my huge butt would have stayed in my recliner. I live in the hills lol It's a 45 min drive to the closest walmart :)

I do it all the time. It's normal driving here. My hospital and doctor are that far away.

I drove an hour to work 5 days a week right up until my delivery. actually... I drove an hour to the hospital FOR my delivery... as many people do.

typically on long drives.. (I moved 24 hour drive 7 months pregnant) they tell you to get up and stretch walk around every 2-3 hours. you're fine at half hour.
