Flying while heavily pregnant


Hi ladies...I am currently just over 4 weeks pregnant and i'm going on holiday this Saturday for a week. I've also got a holiday booked at the end of August in Greece.

Will I be ok to fly then or will I be too far along???

Thanks - yes I think i'll be around 5.5 months. I'm not completely sure how to work it out at the moment but it'll be around that mark. I find flying really uncomfortable as it is but I suppose it could be worse...Greece is only a few hours away!!

Just make sure your airline doesnt require a fit to fly note but at 5.5 months you should be absolutely fine! Enjoy your holiday! xx
