    I keep thinking of random questions to ask you guys!

    Can anyone recommend good travel insurance that covers illness/medication relating to pregnancy? I'll be 25-27 weeks when we travel, and I know this sounds stupid but should I get the baby insured as well?? also, shoudl I take my notes away with me...?

    :D

    You need to make sure that your travel insurance covers pregnancy, i had great trouble finding one that covered me when i went away at the begining of Sept. If you get normal insurance and are not covered then they can refuse to cover you when your out there if something does happen.

    Also you definatly need to take your notes with you hun, because if anything does happen they can refer to them for everything they do.

    Are you flying? If so you need to check with your airline as they may need a GP written letter stating your fit to fly... i know i did and i was traveling at 20 weeks.

    Hope this helps :)

    M&S covered me when i was 29 weeks
    make sure you have a doctors fit to fly note ( nobody ever asked to see mine though :roll: and take your MAT notes as well
    I just called them rather than do it on line
    Someairlines don't like you flying after a certain time as well so might be best to check that out as well
