Slinky, that sounds like a good plan! Hope it works - I can sense that you are really feeling the time pressure of the deadline of when you leave for Japan, here's hoping we put you on the plane 2-3 months pregnant, hey! I am 28 weeks on Thursday and think I will relax a lot come that day, from what the Obs told me if they had to pull baby out (or if he came early) he would have a long stay in NICU/Special Care but would be okay. My first DS spent 5 and a half weeks in Special Care, so I know what that means. I have gone ahead and bought all the things I would need for a preemie birth, so am feeling as prepared as possible. Of course I would much rather got to term but as the Obs tells me, I'm not the one in charge of that particular decision.
