I thought this little excursion would be no problem, but the closer we get to it, the more stressed I become. Just as I hit the third trimester, DH and I are hitting the road for our last baby-free (relatively speaking) music festival in the high desert of California. I’m slightly worried about the drive through the desert, parts of which are unpopulated for long stretches (i.e. no hospital for an hour in any direction). I’m more worried about the heat at the festival with no air conditioning in sight. We might luck out and have temps in the 80s, but it has gotten up to 100 some years. I might have to be a party pooper and check into a motel 20 minutes away from the festival instead of camping, although I really hope we don’t have to do that. It would be such a pain to go back and forth (plus we can’t really afford it). I’ve seen pregnant women at this festival before, so I know it can be done.
Any suggestions for being pregnant and camping in the heat?
ETA- It might not be an hour in either direction. I'm trying not to worry to the point that I'm googling our route for hospitals and doctors, but that might make me feel better. There's a hospital close to the actual festival, so that is reassuring in case the heat does something bad to me...
Ack! I'm stressing too much!!!!
...but just seeing this in writing makes me feel better because I can see I'm overreacting.
