    As far as I am aware, flying in early pregnancy is fine, its just later on it can become an issue. Something about cabin pressure can induce early labour.

    I think the important thing is to avoid alcohol intake and take your prenatal vitamins etc.

    Hope that helps :hug:

    ps have a nice holiday xx

    thank you!! :hug::hugs::hug:

    i have a slight confession, ive not been taking any prenatal vitamins:blush:

    i know its not an excuse but with everything thats happened over the past year the only thing i have cut down on is alcohol and thats just because im bored of drinking. i carried on eating what i do all the time still smoke ( naughty i know but its maximum 4 a day if that) i guess it was my way off coping sounds silly but there we go...

    think i should start taking them again but other that taking them im not going to change the rest yet as when i did earlier this year and then m/c and the rest it just left me heartbroken and asking why i bothered. hope this makes sense..


    and whilst im on the essay mode i am sorry girls if i go on a bit but im really emotional today and a little tender so dont mind me please.xxx:cry:

    I think Folic Acid is the most important prenatal vitamin. Cos it helps prevent neural tube defects. My practice nurse gave it me for free?? But by the sounds of things, not everyone is as lucky?!?

    A lady I used to work with has a daughter in law that had a baby with spina bifida and she was 25 and never took anything to help. She was also a smoker.

    I am NOT trying to upset or panic you, just advise & say it how I see it.

    It does sound like your making a big effort, so I am not going to say you must try harder. I just believe our sticky beans are pure souls and its our job to keep them that way.

    Good luck :hugs:

    I totally understand where you are coming from, I take folic acid but still smoke and drink, tried giving it up whilst TTC but when it came to :bfn: I felt so gutted especially after I had done everthing to the letter.

    If I ever do get a :bfp:with my OH then I will give it all up like I did last time before I had the m/c.

    At the moment I honestly feel like I will never get a :bfp:so what is the point in making it harder.

    Don't punish yourself too much but as Lisa says maybe take the Folic Acid due to all the benefits and I am sure when you are blessed with a :bfp:mothering instinct will kick and you will stop the smoking etc.

    :hug:

    My vice is wine, vodka, cakes and choccy! I have not had a drink for about 2 weeks but certainly made up for it with the sweet stuff. :rofl:

    I guess everyone has their way of dealing with stress, normally I just cry.

    Anyway girlies I am 100% sure that as Debbie82 said mothering instinct will make all the difference.

    Keep Smiling!

    :hugs:
