Check with your doctor but it should be fine if your not having complications

Yep, just make sure you take your medical records in case something happens. Or at least my doctor said to do that. Also, make sure to get up and walk around on the plane, it help with swelling.

I agree with the other comment. Check with your Doc first, but it should be okay if you're not high risk. When I was 5 months pregnant I took a plane a few times between then and 7 months. Just make sure you drink and eat breakfast first, I didn't have time at 4am and regretted it after! I almost passed out on the plane. After they gave me food and drink,I felt way better. Stupid me!

my ob said when traveling a far distance to make sure you have snacks for you and to drink plenty of water. But I would still ask yours about it

As long as you are not high risk.

and be sure to stop to stretch if you are riding long periods of time.

Check with your doctor but normally 36 weeks is the cut off unless your high risk. I'm high risk & my cut off from traveling was once I get back from my trip last month.

I'll be riding 16 hours and then flying home when I'm 6 months. I already talked to my dr. It's different for each person. As long as you're not having problems or on bed rest, dr will prob tell u it's fine. My dr did say when in a car to stop every 2 hrs to stretch cause of getting blood clots.
