jason&robin:I don't think I will stop. I'll keep doing my thing until I start having pain or my water breaks. I do get some funny looks when I am out though. It's like I am a bomb about to go off.
This exactly. And especially when people ask when I'm due and I tell them days ago. Haha.
Haha! Yes, I get this look! I was asked yesterday "are you having that baby right now?" Umm.... yes and you are the lucky lady who gets to help me deliver! lol
IselaCid:Nothing will happen quick enough so that you can't go home and get help if you need it. Even if your water breaks you'll have plenty of time to deal with it. Sitting around waiting for someone to go/help me would drive me insane!
Isela is absolutely right. My sister & DH are already paranoid about me being out on my own, my sis doesn't like me driving, DH is worried somethign will happen. I keep telling them I am pregnant not invalid! I plan on doing ym thing until my belly is too big for my short little legs to reach the peddles I am too stir crazy beign couped up in the house, esp with DH working long shifts!
As of Friday, I've stopped driving into the office (working from home), but that's more because I just really want to start slowing down and finishing up the work I have so that I'm not trying to make phone calls from the delivery room!
I have no plans to stop driving myself around or running errands. I'll have enough time to get home, no matter where I am. Or, if I had to, I'd make DH come pick me up. If I had to sit at home all day I'd lose my mind!
We live out in the country, which means that we need to travel at least 1/2 hour to get to anything (walmart, home depot, etc.) My mom is 2 hours away IL's 3 hours. Since 35 weeks I've been cutting back how far i'm willing to travel. At 36 weeks I made my last visit to mom's before I have LO. I as well am become more hesitant to travel to far from home & hospital. Thankfully hospital is only 15minutes (the only thing close!)
I figure I'm smart enough to take care of myself if anything starts to happens. Get home, call DH, get bag and get to hospital when necessary. I can't see anything happening quickly so I'll have time to get everything together!!!
I don't ever plan on stopping. I mean what could really happen? You're not going to go into labor and pop a kid out in 10 minutes. Plus if there ever was an emergency you can always call 911.
I'll do my 40 minute commute to and from work, grocery shopping and everything else right until this kid come out.
