    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    As long as she can fit behind the steering wheel, reach the pedals, and wear her seatbelt, it's perfectly safe. I drove to my own doctor's appointment when I was 37 weeks pregnant.

    My daughter is expecting her first baby Feb. 8ish and I am just concerned as this is her first and worried about contractions and being behind wheel
    tlkittycat1968 replied to hysbyotch's response:
    As long as she isn't in danger of going into labor early, there's no danger. Like I said, I drove at 37 weeks pregnant.
    hysbyotch replied to tlkittycat1968's response:
    My daughter's first pregnancy and I am worried if she is behind wheel of MY car and and if a contraction starts or her water breaks I am afraid she will panic.
