Totally this.  I don't think you could pay me to go camping while pregnant or with little ones.  Sounds like the opposite of fun.  My young children can barely manage to fall asleep in hotel beds, I can't imagine in a tent!  (Disclaimer: I have only gone on the ground sleeping bag tent camping, I might feel differently if I had the opportunity to camp differently)  That said, I would go on a trip 2.5 hours away at 36 weeks.

Hey Amanda!  :)  Thanks for the well-wishes...  I feel so much better now that I have made a firm decision about things.  There's a peace now, you know?  I'm very happy.

I don't know if I personally would if I was having some of the symptoms you're having.  So far, I have gone the better safe than sorry route when my contractions pick back up.  If you can rest while you're gone, though, maybe it would be just fine.  What do you feel about it?  Are you comfortable with the place nearby if you wind up having to go there?  Hugs- hopefully it will be no big deal and everything will go swimmingly!
