Doubt I'll be able to have a safe distance between bump and steering wheel, while being able to reach the pedals. Thankfully Hubby works from home, so it won't interfere with me being able to go out.
Aw, you must be so cute and tiny preggo! Happy to hear you'll have some safe travels with hubby driving you when you no longer can.
lol My family and friends are very curious to know how big baby will be as Hubby is 6'5. I just feel short and very frumpy, already started showing from early week 14 and annoyingly I'm growing widthways as well, so now I look even shorter
Goodness, you've a ridiculously tall husband! When little one is born, you're going to have to tell us how long that baby is!
Shall keep you all posted

Unless your doctor says otherwise, you don't need to stop driving. I drove until the day my water broke. As for walking, it's actually a very good way to prepare your body for labor. it helps the baby to get in the right position and keeps your body up-to-date.

I don't plan on stopping, but my husband won't take me on the back of his Harley and I'm only 16 weeks!

Better safe than sorry he says..

I actually go running and hiking a lot, which is why I'm thinking I might be like my friend where she did a lot of yoga and kept fit during her pregnancy, and she had her little ones at 36 weeks!

I don't think there is anytime before birth you should stop driving, however I can understand not wanting to do long drives (if on the highway) if you are concerned about going into labour and ending up stranded somewhere.

My doc says you can drive as long as you are comfortable doing so .. but I quit driving since first tri , for i feel very exhausted and tired after work for a 40 minutes drive (so instead i take a cab and happily sleep in the rear seat !!!)
