There's probably an 80% chance I'll need to travel for a funeral within the next two or so weeks. By car, it's a 10 to 12 hour drive, by air it's about an hour but $$$$ because we'd be flying into a small regional airport with only one carrier. We're hurting pretty hard for money, but will figure it out if that's our only option.
Anyway, I'm 23 weeks right now. So far, everything is healthy and well but I'm feeling the strain at this point. I have BH contractions only about once a week and can get them under control quickly and easily. I have an appointment and ultrasound next week and, ideally, I'd be able to go to that before leaving so that we know everybody is still healthy.
My questions are:
#1 - Would you risk driving? It will be through mountains with changing elevations which are just a pain, but shouldn't really be a problem this time of year. We'll need to stop regularly for our toddler, even if I didn't have to pee every 30 minutes.
#2 - Would you mention the travel to your doctor? I'm afraid to say anything about it for fear of being told I can't go.
