Is it safe to travel long distance while pregnant? Im 24 weeks pregnant and want to drive from washington to arizona. It will be 1145miles there. Is it safe to take the trip?
A : A woman with a complicated pregnancy may not want to travel too far from the doctors who know her best, but if you and your pregnancy have been healthy, then it's probably ok. You may want to check with your doctor just to be sure. If you make the trip, a few tips to keep you safe are: - drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated! none of us wants to stop the car to pee every hour, but when you are in your second and third trimester, staying hydrated will keep you from having contractions and will help to prevent blood clots. - move around! sitting in the same place for hours can cause you to develop blood clots in your legs - especially when you're pregnant. You are more likely to form clots just from the hormone changes that come with pregnancy and your heavy uterus is sitting on the main veins from your legs causing slowed flow so there's more chance of a clot forming. Since clots often happen in the groins of pregnant women, doing calf exercises while sitting is not enough! (you're going to be stopping constantly anyway to pee from all that water you're drinking, right?) - bring your chart. Have your doc give you a copy of your pregnancy records "just in case" something happens while you are away. That will give the doctors caring for you far away from home a huge advantage to have all of your information. Happy travels and wear your seatbelt! ...Read more

Probably OK.: Is it the intensity of sound you are concerned about? If so, i believe the baby is well insulated from the stress of high decibel impact. However, it is hard to know for certain, because few studies have been done. There is a cdc study re: prolonged fetal exposure to high decibel sound in working women but the only negative effects were found in women with the additional risk factor of standing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
