It really depends on you & how your pregnancy progresses.

I can no longer reach the peddles because my belly is in the way of the steering wheel & have strong painful contractions regularly (to the point of where "DH" & MIL have had to come in to town to bring me home twice now).

Because of that I'm "banned" (not legally) from driving until I deliver.

I don't have problems yet with our SUV so I still drive that. But the other vehicle I won't because of breathing problems!

I stopped driving with DS towards the end and haven't been doing much this time either...I just can't breath and can't turn well enough to check blind spots and my feet are swollen so I just dont' feel comfortable

I always am able to drive all the way to the end...but I will say that sitting is by far the most uncomfortable position for me. It kills my back and I just can't get comfortable. So I feel your pain!
