    Would it be ok to go away just for a weekend when I'm 36 and a half weeks pregnant?
    Really want to visit my mum for one last time before baby comes, it's down in Brighton and I'm in Leeds (250 miles).
    I doubt I'll go in to labour then...but who knows!? :wacko:

    We went to a wedding in Leeds at 37weeks - almost 200 miles from home.

    I took my notes, hospital bag and the car seat just in case

    If LO isn't here by then, we'll be going away right at 40 weeks, it is only about 150 miles, and only about 1.5 hours from the birth center, but we will be bringing the hospital bags and carseat. IT is actually closer from our family's house to the birth center than it is from our house, as it takes us 2-2.5 hours from home so either way I figure we'll be fine. But as long as you think you would be comfortable either driving that whole distance in labor, or delivering in another hospital, I think it is fine.
