Traveling at 30+ weeks
Does anyone know when doctors suggest no more traveling? We are planning a spring break trip with the kids and it would be around 32 weeks. We aren't flying but it would be a long drive. I have a call in to my doc to ask but I'm curious if anyone knows what their doctor would suggest.

Crashing your Due Date Club here, but I am traveling out of state by plane at around thirty-three weeks and my midwife says it's just fine. She'll send me with my records in case anything happens, but I don't anticipate anything baby-related happening while we are away. She said to get up and walk often to keep leg circulation up, but other than that, there aren't problems with traveling late term.

Re: Traveling at 30+ weeks
HOLY COW, my doc office just called back and the nurse said no travel after 24 weeks! I'm not high risk or anything but that is what they tell all patients. I asked why and was told b/c viability is 24 weeks and they don't want travel after that. That is ridiculous! I would understand if I was high risk or had complications but I don't and this is my 3rd child.

wow that sound rediculous. i flew to italy with my DD at 27 weeks, no problems. my dr sent a note incase the airline had an issue, they didn't but i felt better knowing i had it just incase. but by car, i would say you could travel whatever you felt comfortable with.

Re: Traveling at 30+ weeks
I'm really hoping the nurse was incorrect b/c 24 weeks just seems crazy. I will have just hit 32 weeks and will be home before 33 weeks. I think I'm just going to go and not be too concerned.

Re: Traveling at 30+ weeks
I was traveling until 30 weeks. At 30 weeks my DR. recommended no more school bus trips, but I was welcome to drive my own car behind the bus as long as I could stop and walk every hour or so. He recommended no travel after 35 weeks and at that point I was an uncomplicated pregnancy.
