I'm hoping to get some advice from STMs or anyone who is also considering travel in the 3rd trimester... I think I'm being a bit too stringent, but here's how it goes.
We'd like to do a babymoon weekend on the coast of Maine (about 4-5 hours from home). My 3rd timester starts May 23 - the best looking weekends to go right now are May 3-5 or June 7-9. My friend visits the area each year and warned that in early May, we may find that many of the seasonsal shops and restaurants aren't open.
I've read that 3rd trimester travel (even in the car for many hours) isn't recommended - but would you still go when its just a couple weeks into it? Will I be far too uncomfortable? We will be able to stop very easily on the route to Maine - so taking breaks won't be an issue.
EDIT: I take it back - its about 2.5 hours away! So more than anything, would you be concerned being away from home during this time?
