Can I Make It to a Hospital 1Hr and 26Mins Away When I Go into Labor?

This is my 1st pregnancy and I'm 1hr away from the nearest Kaiser hospital. I have no idea how contractions work. I know everyones different but I also know that I probably won't deliver within the 1st hour of feeling contractions. But will I make it a whole hour? With my boyfriend who's a smoker? I jus don't know if I can make it to the hospital! Trying to figure out what I can do since after 37 weeks she could come at anytime. If we get a hotel the day before my due date what if she doesn't come till a week after? I appreciate any advice...

Anyone That Has Used an IUD for Birth Control

I am considering using the 5 yr IUD for birth control with the recommendation of my doctor. We have 3 children and don't want anymore but I didn't want to do anything "permanent" yet. I am wanting feedback from other women that have or are currently using the IUD (either the 5 yr or 10 yr). Has anyone had any side effects or problems with it? Are you ever aware that it is there?? I read that it can sometimes come out on it's own, has anyone had that happen? All feedback is appreciated. Thanks, K.
