I'm very VERY VERYexcited to be going to see my most excellent awesome friend, who lives way too far from me, this week. I am very pregnant and it'll be a really long drive. I'm just looking for a few tips to make the drive a little easier, and anything I should look out for or be careful of...

As long as everything is okay with your pregnancy I would mostly watch for cramps that can result from changes in elevation as well as the vibrations and bumps in the road. You may also notice that you get car sick more easily in certain areas so I'd have a plan for that just in case... Beyond that take snacks, lots of water, a pillow that you can put behind your back if you need to, and make sure to stop at least once an hour to stretch your legs.
Definitely stretch the legs. Keep hydrated. Other than that... I don't think there's much to do! Just try to keep as comfortable as possible... maybe bring a pillow to sit on if your tailbone starts hurting (that's what gets me in planes and cars... owowowow)
