A lot of you will be taking car trips in the summer, and it is a good idea to plan a little. Do remember to wear your seat belt at all times and make sure it does not cover your pregnant belly.
Try to limit the car trip to 6 hours per day and remember to take frequent breaks every 1 to 2 hours to stretch and go to the restroom, as this will help to prevent blood clots in your legs. Being stuck in a car for hours might be a little uncomfortable so do bring a pillow or two with you.
If you are prone to nausea, consider nausea bands or some prescribed nausea medication from your health care provider. Finally, it is a good idea to bring some snacks and plenty of bottled water as well as a small roll of toilet paper.
For those of you who prefer the leisure of a cruise trip, do remember to plan for potential nausea and ask your health care provider for some nausea medication such as Ondansetron or the Scopolamine patch. They are both safe to use in pregnancy.
