I have to be in court in another state a little more than 2 1/2 weeks before my due date. It is not something that can be rescheduled until after the baby is born. The court date is set, I have to be there the day before and the day of court and will travel home that same day if conditions permit. Since it is so close to my edd I will not be able to fly and will have to drive instead. My concern is not the drive, I am a pretty good traveller and will take plenty of breaks to rest and strech my legs. I'll also have my mother with me. My huge concern is going into labor while I am away from home. I plan to bring the carseat along with diapers and clothes in case I deliver while out of town. Of course I don't want to deliver while I am gone, especially since dh is unable to go with me. I know y'all probably think I am nuts because most women are itching to deliver at 37 weeks but I am just wondering if there are any tips to stay pg longer. My dd was born a few days past her edd and ds was born the day before his, hopefully this one stays put until as close to his edd as possible.
