    I have to agree, your DH sounds a bit overly cautious! Nice of him to be concerned but surely flipping out over an umbrella mocktail with good friends is a bit over the top?

    I'm 39 + 1 and haven't confined myself to the house yet... I'm still driving, shopping etc etc although it is all becoming a bit more difficult as I haul my enormous self around. Should I not be driving? I don't know... no-one has told me to stop yet although I realise there are risks... Yesterday I drove half an hour away to attend a friend's baby shower and had a lovely time - I don't think you should deprive yourself of a social life just because you're pregnant. If you feel well and have enough energy then go for it

    DH was like that too during my first pregnancy so we compromised by always leaving the hospital bag in the car and updates every hour. He also had the contact details of who/where I was plus my OBs mob number handy.

    This all started at 37wks and since I was 2 weeks overdue it was a long month!!!!

    Go out and enjoy!!!
