i am from sweden but live in the states. i flew week 30 to visit my family and friends in sweden flew again week 32, which was last week back to USA. i had no problems at all. when i was back home in sweden i went out with my friends and danced, i didn't get home until 4-5 in the morning and it was fine. i just made sure to drink lots of water both during my flights that were over 10 hrs long total each way as well as during my time in sweden. my doc gave me a note but no one asked at the airport both in europe as well as in the states.
i want to tell you though i have not gained a whole lot, most likely just my bump. although i had sever ms the first 17 weeks that were then managed with meds until week 20. i am a healthy person with no problems. i would keep your flight to spain but see how you feel when you get closer to the date.
congrats by the way and have a happy and healthy 9 months.
Hi I work for an airline (not flying whilst pregnant as they make us work on the ground!) our policy is that is you are flying after 28 weeks you need to have a letter from your midwife/doctor to confirm that it is a single uncomplicated pregnancy. I believe each airline has different cut off point the airline I work for (it is a British long haul airline) is 36 weeks. Flying is ok just keep well hydrated as its not a long flight you will be fine. X
Early in my pregnancy I assumed I'd fly home to see my mom when I was about 26 weeks, but at 18 weeks I developed SPD and the thought of sitting in an airline seat was beyond out of the the question. I very much hope you don't develop chronic pelvic pain as well but just be aware that something like that may come up out of nowhere and scupper your plans.
