I need some advice. My daughter-in-law is about to make me a grandmother again (in May) and it's absolutely wonderful. She is going thru a very difficult time right now due to problems her parents are having and due to the fact that her first child was born with a heart defect and there is an increased chance that this baby could also have a problem...........no likely, but possible.
Prior to finding out that she was pregnant, my husband and I scheduled a big summer vacation for both our sons and their families. Guess when our vacation is scheduled......6/11 and it can't be changed, at least we haven't been successful so far!!!
Her first child was born two weeks early. I know that doesn't mean this pregnancy will end early. She really wants and needs to go on this trip and is wanting to take the baby. Her due date is 5/30!
I'm concerned! I know that we're just talking about driving to the beach and the baby would obviously stay in the condo WITH GRANDMA and then they will drive home! She is so stressed about missing this trip that I'm really getting worried. I want whatever is best for the baby but also want her to be able to relax and just rest.
Can anyone tell me what their thoughts are about travelling with an infant this young? I haven't been able to find out anything in the books. I'm also afraid that she won't tell the doctor for fear that he'll say no.
Thanks for any help!
