I've just been offered a free holiday around Europe, driving not flying, going to see various cities like Venice and Madrid. But I'm almost 35 weeks pregnant and I'm not sure if I should or not. I would really like to go but I'm concerned. What would you do?

Tbh I wouldn't go but it's totally a personal choice. I was more nervous towards the end of my pregnancy than I was during the early stages and I personally wouldn't want to be travelling around Europe with only a matter of a couplle of weeks to go.........my LO was born at 38+2!!!

There are worse things that can happen that give birth abroad I suppose tho, your LO will have dual nationality Wink

Insurance will prob be pretty high tho Hun, surely at this stage you'll be classed as high risk?

I might be nuts but I would probably go! Would mean that your last few weeks would be amazing and full of excitement, and if worse came to worse. . . you give birth in a foreign hospital?

But that might just be me, I could never turn down a free holiday lol!

I wouldn't risk it .

I'm booked to go to my sisters wedding in Mexico in may .

I'm not even pregnant but ttc, so if I fall pregnant , no matter what stage I'm at I won't go . Josh can go instead , the bonus is he gets to share a room with my mum Laughing

How's your pregnancy been ? Maybe speak to your doctor / midwife and get a honest opinion from them

I would probably go too but not sure if you would get travel insurance? Also you'd probably feel really tired the whole time. I know from about 36 weeks moving from the sofa was an effort and you've got one lo already. Would he go too? Even with all that I'd still go, the places you've mentioned are amazing and it's free! x

Thanks girls. I think I'm going to talk to my mum first and then my MW and see from there. If they don't think its a good idea then I won't go but its such a temptation (although I can be tempted very easily nowadays Laughing )

Some ferry companies may not accept you past 34 weeks and some may allow up to 38 weeks but only with a doctors note covering both outbound and inbound. Not sure about the euro tunnel though! Also an insurance company may not insure you and if they do the premium will be expensive.

Happy travelling if you do manage to go because I would deffo go if I could travel!
