TRAVELLING DURING PREGNANCY
I am 25 weeks pregnan. Is it safe to travel (by vehicle) beyond 100km at any given time from now until delivery.

I am already experiencing cramping and abdominal pains, but would still like to travel for both work and private purposes. I hate being restricted, but ofcourse do not want to put my baby and/ or myself in danger.

Please advise.

The travel itself is not a problem, but you may be out of reach of medical attention if you are out of town.
