    Default Going away close to due date

    Just after some advice. What would you do?
    Im 30 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child and we're looking to go away 4 weeks before he is due. I had my docs check up yesterday and was told that already his head is very low down and pretty much into position. I have a sneaky feeling that i will deliver early. Would you even fathem going away this close? 4 weeks is 4 weeks. He may be overdue for all i know and i would have missed out on a great week away. Its approx 3 hrs drive from where we live and there is a very large hospital in the region.
    So, what would you do? Im thinking we have the 2nd seat installed in the car before we go away and take hospital bags just in case.
    To be sure to be sure!!

    Did you go early with your first???
    I'd go, but that's me. I hate missing out :-)
    Help is there if needed! I guess it is whether you feel comfortable to go or not.
    Good idea to take your bags etc with you, just in case! Have fun!!!
