    Hello,

    I'm on vacation and having a great time...but the flight out here I was quite stressed out! I usually take a Xanax while flying but obviously didn't as I'm pregnant. I'm usually fine with Xanax, but this time every bump I was convinced we were going down!!

    I felt bad that I was stressing out so much and probably stressing out the baby. :nope::nope:

    Our flight home is tomorrow and I'm wondering what I can do to make it easier...I've read online about taking Calm's Forte or Rescue Remedy. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    My hubby thinks I should call the midwife and ask if I can take half a Xanax or something but I dunno, I think I'd feel too guilty!

    Hi allie. I hope I've not replied too late and u are already on ur flight.
    Anyway I posted a very similar post yesterday as I fly out tomorrow and I am so terrified. I'm on my phone so can't get the link put I think it is on page two or three and called - extend fear of flying. Can I take anything for nerves.

    I got some useful replies x

    Hey, thanks, I'm going to look for that thread now!

    I took one spray of Rescue Remedy last night to try it out....not sure if I felt any different.
