Not sure why I'm posting, because I think my mind is made up, but what is the deal with travel late in pregnancy? My husband wants me to go up to a national park with him in a couple days. He is working up there today and will be going back in a few more days.
The thing is that I am 37 weeks and a few days.
I was late the first time around, but who knows what'll happen this time? The park is not far away- maybe an hour and a half, 2 hours to get up to the lodge. But there's no cell phone reception there. If he's busy working and I go into labor I won't be able to reach him. I know there will be other people, but the idea of relying on strangers to help me in labor and watch my three year old is seriously alarming!
I'm frustrated because he's been guilt tripping me about not doing this with him. The first time around not only did I stay home from like 37/38 weeks, but I made him mostly stay home as well during that time. Then I was 10 days late, so there was a lot of waiting on both our parts. This time around I'm not putting a lot of pressure on him to be home all the time till closer to my due date, but I still feel trepidation about being away from home- away from my midwives, my list of sitters, etc.
If I did go up, I'd be stressed the whole time, worrying about every braxton-hicks contraction and probably making us turn back and go home thining I was in labor.
Oh well, this has turned into a rant. Any concrete advice about late in pregnancy travel? I forgot to ask my midwives.
