Is flying safe during first tri?
My wife's job involves travel and she flew sometimes twice a week during her first trimester: her OB/GYN informed her that flying while in the first trimester is fine.
I am travelling in May 2010 for my sister's wedding in the Dominican. I will be around 7 months pregnant. I talked to the travel consultant about it and she responded with this:
Up to 35 weeks of pregnancy, women may travel without restriction
Women between their 36th and 39th week of pregnancy are only accepted for travel with a doctor's note dated less than 24 hours prior to the date of travel
After 39 weeks of pregnancy, women will not be accepted for travel
Oh wow..i heard that no flying close to 9 months..
Here you can fly until 36 weeks on most airlines, and after that you just need a note from your doctor. I flew to Las Vegas (3 hour flight) 7 months pregnant before and and was just fine! I also flew there 8 weeks pregnant.
I am planing flying home from Maryland to Scotland at around 5/6 months and was wondering the same thing, how safe it was!.
I guess best answer will be from a doctor just to make sure because googling it there's so many different answers to it..
It is supposed to be perfectly safe during 1st, 2nd and begining of 3rd tri
Yeah, I think everyone is different. I flew from Italy to Australia (19hrs total, with a 2hr standby in between flights) at 7mths and had a breezy time of it.
I am flying next week, 8 hours @ 9 weeks.
My MW said its fine
1) get an aisle seat
2) walk at least once an hour
3) drink LOADS of water (thats why you need the aisle seat for loo breaks)
4) wear flight socks
5) wiggle yr ankles lots
So, not a problem!!
Bring on holidays ;-) x

We were waiting to try until March as we're going to Western USA (11hr flight) then. Do you think we could ttc now then as it would be okay to fly long haul in T1?
