Answer: Hello dear, Travel by car or bus is safe during pregnancy. If you don't have any serious medical complications like low lying placenta issue then you can travel. Sitting anywhere for long periods of time can make your feet and ankles swell and your legs cramp. Take a break from driving at least every 90 minutes, although you may need to stop even more often for the toilet... To prevent cramps, find somewhere safe to walk around and do some simple stretches. If you're sitting or standing, extend your leg, heel first, and gently flex your foot to stretch your calf muscles. When you're sitting, rotate your ankles and wiggle your toes. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes too. You don't need a waistband or tight blouse digging in when you're travelling. If sitting in the car gives you backache, try putting a cushion, foam wedge or rolled up sweater in the small of your back. You should always wear a seat belt when you're travelling in a car, whether you're pregnant or not.
