Question: now it's been 15 weeks can I travel for 4 hrs in vehicle?
Answer: Hii There's no reason not to travel by car when you're pregnant, but you will need plenty of stops for the toilet and to stretch your legs.
Also, congested, unruly traffic, bumpy and pot-holed roads and lack of basic amenities on the road (such as hygienic public toilets and eating joints) car travel may be uncomfortable and stressful for some.
Conditions get particularly bad during the monsoon season when the roads are slushy and many a times flooded at places.
That said, many women travel by car without any problems. Cars are less vulnerable than two-wheelersand unlike a bus you have complete control of your vehicle and your travel schedule.
These useful tips can help make your road trip more comfortable:
Before you leave for your journey, it is wise to re-confirm your bookings as well as the route.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 walkaround 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.Travel light and try not to overload your car with luggage.If you have been suffering from morning sickness in your first trimester then you may find it easier to travel in the second trimester Hopefully, by this time driving around, especially up long winding hilly roads won't make you nauseous.If sitting in the car gives you backache, try putting a cushion, foam wedge or rolled up sweater in the small of your back.Make sure you have plenty of healthy snacks and drinks with you to nibble on the journey. Some good options are fresh fruits and vegetables such as apples (seb), carrots (gajjar), bananas, oranges (santara), dried fruits, nuts, murmure or stuffed paranthas and sandwiches.If you do need to eat out, it's best to stick to foods that are thoroughly cooked, especially if you're eating at roadside dhaabas or motels. In general, it's wise to avoid raw foods such as salads and meats. Opt for packaged or bottled water and stay away from fresh fruit juices or lassi served by roadside vendors.As your pregnancy progresses and your bump gets bigger, you may prefer to let someone else drive. Your bump can get uncomfortably close to the steering wheel and you may find driving too much like hard work.
But if you plan to travel for more than 10 hours, it may be a better idea to travel by train or take a plane if the destination has a connection.
