walking long distances

Im 30 weeks.
Everything has been great and perfect (besides them recently saying I have a small cervix)
I havent had cramping or sickness since early pregnancy.
Im going to the beach and I love walking down to the pier. It's about a two mile walk.
Could this be dangerous?
Since im on the later side of pregnancy I dont want it to cause premature labor or anything

I would just make sure that you stay hydrated. And hey if you can still walk 2 miles, I think that's wonderful! Ever since my son dropped, I can barely walk to the bathroom!

If your really concerned though I would discuss it with your doctor and make sure that she/he is okay with it, but walking is good for pregnancy, just don't get dehydrated or overheated!
