Q:

I am 4 months pregnant. Doctor advised me for bed rest for 3 months. Now with doctor's permission I have joined office and I travel by car. But travelling bothers me alot. Is it absolutely safe travelling by car?



Sonali Shivlani

Traveling by car is safe and since you have the permission from your doctor it should be fine. Would you like to share what exactly bothers you ? are you uncomfortable like back ache nausea or are you just worried due to past history of being on bed rest ? Can you please post as a new question as may miss response in a thread.

Hi Aneesha..I faced exactly the same problem like u wen I was pregnant. Now my son is 4 months old.
I had bleeding during 2nd and 3rd month due to which I was advised to be in bed rest..Then joined back in 4th month and I also travelled by car to office.. doctor said it is safe to travel once the first trimester has completed.I had the same tension while traveling to office but it got subsided by the end of 5th month..our body and mind would be feeling comfortable after that so don't worry..avoid sudden jerks and moreover the baby is very safe inside the womb wid multiple cushions :)

Thank you Jayshri and Sonali. It really made me more comfortable.
