The Bump Expert

If it's a space designated by the store as "stork parking" or "family parking," by all means, yes, park there. But if it's a space that requires a handicapped parking permit, you definitely shouldn't park in it unless you have one (or else you're breaking the law and could get a ticket or, worse, your car could be towed). The good news is, if you have pregnancy complications that keep you from being mobile, you can apply for the permit. You'll likely need a doctor's note verifying your condition, so check with your DMV about what's required. Otherwise, ask your partner to drop you off at the door.

Pregnancy is not a disability or handicap...so NO!

No one means to imply that. Rather, we would like the small comfort of not having to walk all the way across a parking lot with a sore back and feet. Some stores do offer "expecting" spaces. I live in the South and CVS drugstores offer this is most locations. Keep an eye out for something similar at other stores.

Krogers also offer this at most locations in GA that I have seen. I'm using these spaces to my full advantage!

not sure legally but this helps keep someone from parking too close - I was about 27 weeks and couldn't get into my car! I felt horrible and there was nothing I could do :(

No you cannot do this unless you have a special permit, I parked my car once in such a spot and got a ticket for this because I could not present the permit. In that day my car broke on the way home and I had to order some parts from http://www.detailking.com/, the mechanic told me the car parts will cost a lot but on this website they were cheap.

Recently I parked my car bought from millerautoplaza.com on such a spot and luckily I did not have to pay any fine. There were no available parking spots at the mall and I had to buy something urgently so parking in that place was the only option.
