Driving

Do you ladies still drive? I don't feel as safe as I used to anymore, I don't know why? I only drive to the stores/ round the doors if I have to. I'm 33+2 and don't think I'll even be able to drive for much longer if I wanted to! My belly is so close to the steering wheel lol! If I get much bigger I certainly won't be able to fit nomore!

I'll be 37 weeks on Monday and I'm short so my drivers seat has to be close to the wheel.  Surprisingly,  my baby bump hasn't hit the steering wheel yet. I'm extremely cautious while driving though

No one lets me drive lol. When my fiance is home on the weekends, he drives me everywhere. I don't ever get out of the house. . only when he's home.  I did use my dads car the other day to grab some coffee and my anxiety was through the roof! I hate driving now that I'm pregnant.

I still drive but at 38 weeks it is super uncomfortable! And the way I sit makes me feel like I'm going to pee on myself lol so whenever my bf is off he drives so I can relax some lol

I hate driving lol but I have to constantly it feels like. I have to take my son to & from school, do all the grocery & household shopping,  run all the errands because my husband works so much, take my boys to the doctor when needed & all my doctor visits which are now every week. Wish I could afford a chauffeur. Lol
