So I guess next week we will be traveling to Florida to pick up the boys from our parents It will be a 12 hr drive for us, and roughly about the same for them. We are meeting halfway and going to spend a couple days together in FL before heading back home. It will be a nice little minication before school/baby. I have never traveled this late in pregnancy so I am just hoping it will be an incident free trip!

Good luck! Last month, between driving for work-related reasons, to pick up and drop off my stepkiddos and going on vacation and coming back home, we clocked about 85 hours in the car for July. I had some minor swelling in my feet after some of the longer drives but otherwise held up okay. My midwife sent me with a copy of my prenatal care records just in case, but I didn't need them (thankfully). Drink lots of water and take lots of breaks! I am glad that they're meeting you halfway.
Thank you to Jaidynsmum for our awesome banner and my fabulous siggie!
I agree.. just take plenty of breaks! We are going to Austin (around 4 hours away) this weekend.
I have a doc app. tomorrow so I am going to ask the doc just in case.
Have fun in FL!

Okay so now I am a bit peeved. I called the MW's office to let her know about my travel plans (even though the paperwork says you only need your MW's permission if you are flying past 34 weeks), and they told me that she was furloughed. WTH. She is no longer seeing patients for appointments and is only doing deliveries on L&D a couple days a week. My next appt is with someone I have never even met on 8/14. So I didn't even bother saying anything about my travel plans. We plan on stopping every hour and half or so (we will have to anyway with as often as I have to pee and traveling with a 3yo and 4yo haha)- I will have plenty of breaks to walk around I will definitely make sure I drink enough too.
At our midwife clinic they have this thing called "passport to pregnancy" *insert eye roll here*, so it has all my pertinent medical information pertaining to pregnancy in it. I have it with me at all times in my purse -mostly so I don't have to worry about forgetting to bring it in for appts haha! Anyway, that is what you have to bring to L&D when you go into labor so I think it should suffice.
On another note, I caught my kids' stomach virus from last week and haven't been able to keep anything down since I woke up. Nothing from the other end yet thankfully. This is the third or fourth stomach virus we have caught since Christmas - craziness! I am hoping to be feeling better by this afternoon...
