Driving in pregnancy

Is it advisable to drive throughout your pregnancy. I'm 23 weeks preggies and today the baby is lying so low that it is difficult to bend slightly forward. When is it advisable to stop driving if at all.
Most days it's quite ok, does not affect me.

Driving should not be a problem. Most women continue till about 36 weeks.

If your doc did not order you to stop, it should be ok for the rest of your pregnancy. You do have to be more carefull, avoid accidents....

Enjoy the driving and good luck with your pregnancy..
