I would suggest that you stop long distance driving now.

Hi Clio,

I had pp with my 2nd child...3 weeks before my cc date I went for my weekly check up. There was very little spotting and my gynae decided to admit me to hospital. Lol I even remember being so mad at him because I had to go to work and tell the ppl there I have to go in for no reason at all. That afternoon at 12:00 I had placenta abruptio and had to have a emergency c cection. I am not saying the same thing will happen to you but just be careful when deciding to take a trip far from home and your gynae.

Good Luck
