I used to be a flight attendant and as far as I know flying at 6 months is not a problem. But like mom and ttc said you should still check with your doctor just to be on the safe side. But I don't think it should be a problem
If you have a healthy pregnancy it's safe. Otherwise the only restriction is based on them not wanting you to have the baby on the plane. so some airlines won't let you travel after 6 months. I'm flying home from Boston tomorrow...all went well on the way here!
I am abroad and flying back home today at nearly 29 weeks. I had flown every month since I got pregnant. Get a letter from your doctor for the air company just in case. Wear compression socks during the flight and try to move your feet from time to time. Drink plenty before ahead. Have a great holidays!
i flew from usa to europe several times during my pregnancy. my lates trip was a couple of weeks ago at pregnancy week 32. my doctor gave me a doc note in case they would ask at the airport but they never did. as long as you are healthy your doc will let you and most airlines will allow until week 37. my doc told me no travelling after week 35 because i have to do a c-sec, going into labour is not something that is good for me due to previous abdominal myomectemi.
I work for a CEO of an airport so we deal with this all the time, it is perfectly safe for you to fly at 6 months in fact you can fly up to 32 weeks with most airlines with a note from your Dr that you have an uncomplicated pregnancy. Some airlines will let you fly later but from 34 weeks you would need the airline Dr to check you out.
I flew long haul at 6 months pregnant to visit my family in London as wanted to catch up with them all before bubba was born and it was fine, just speak to the airline and see if you can get an extra leg room seat as you will be uncomfortable at that stage if in economy. Just wear your flight socks and drink plenty of water. Enjoy your break in the sun.
