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...

He tells me that he is very happy and content being at his home, in his yard or in his garage. The problem is, I am no longer his companion, but the beer can is. UGH!!! I finally told him, "If I wanted to be a...

Due to Deliver Any Day - but I Keep Losing Weight!

I'm due to deliver July 18th. I have toddler at home, she's 2 yrs and 9 months. My first pregnancy I had gestational diabetes, controlled throughout with diet alone. I only gained 14 lbs during that pregnancy, but it's because I was losing other body weight due to my sudden, drastic change in eating habits. This time I was a bit heavier to start out. I adopted the diabetes diet before I was even tested to see if I had it again, because I wanted to take care of myself the best I could. (Turns out, I don't have the diabetes this time, my...
