In brief: Consider it

Talk with your OB about the details of your personal situation.
If you are at high risk for preterm delivery and live far away from the higher-level specialty care you and your baby will need with a preterm birth, it may be worth the inconvenience. Minutes and even seconds can really matter in the care of a premature newborn, and preterm deliveries often happen very rapidly. Good luck!
