You can ask them to temporarily raise the max on how much you can withdraw per day.

To be on the safe side it’s always a good idea to cross back the suitcases holding your clothes…so some of both your H2b’s stuff and some of yours in each suitcase, that way if one gets lost at least you have stuff to wear until it catches up with you ;D
I like to know which airline lets you check that many suitcases. Usually with the weight restrictions, you can only manage 1 each.
