I only worked long haul flights but we would advise to get up and walk around to stretch your legs and to stay well hydrated. I would say stand when you can if the seatbelt signs are off and buy a bottle of water after passing security to take on with you (not sure if they would be able to give you one on the plane as supplies might be different as short haul) try not to worry and enjoy your trip away :-)
Me too! Lol! I wonder if we work for the same airline????!

When I was 32 weeks pregnant I flew home from Cyprus back to the UK with no problems at all. I got a fit to fly letter from my Cypriot Dr but didnt even need it. It was only a 4 hour flight i just moved my feet alot and took some water on board with me. I also took some mints as i had food aversions (mainly to the smell) and it helped while they brought the meals out.

Hi, I'll be flying at 29wks with my family international and it'll be a very long flight. My plan is to wear tights, comfy clothing and flat shoes.

I found out I need to fly when I will be 24 weeks for work. I am hoping they will not let me. I know it is safe to but I am just not comfortable with it.

Hey friend, I will be flying at 30/31 weeks. I checked with my Dr's office and they said it is absolutely fine. Just try to stand up every hour or so, act like you're going to the restroom even if you don't need to. Also wear maternity support hose to help your circulation. I have a different concern, I suffer from anxiety. I always used to take Xanax before flying, but obviously it's not good during pregnancy. So I am going to try to use my Rescue Remedy (homeopathic) spray and deep breathing and hope that works. Good luck to you on your trip!

My trip at 27/28 weeks is with work. They have left it totally up to me if I want to fly or not and have also told me I can cancel at the last minute and not worry about the flight cost if i just don't feel well. They also let me book the more expensive route (I'm flying long haul) just so I have less to worry about with changes etc. I want to go though as I can use vacation days to visit family I haven't seen in 19 months. I wouldn't think your work could force you to fly when pregnant?
