  • I traveled when I was 7months prego and my dr said it was perfectly fine, but everyone is different when it comes to pregnancy so I would call and ask my Dr if I were you.

  • I flew from MI to CA when I was about 4 mos along. No problems except I was still having morning sickness! I made sure to walk around as often as I could, luckily I had a lot of layovers! Have fun!

  • i would say that far along, you should be fine... but check with your doctor to make sure you have no high risk issues first.... just to be safe

  • Check with your dr but you should be fine. I flew a lot when pregnant.

    You can also ask for pre-board so that you don't get jostled around when everyone else is trying to get on.

  • It is safe. Doctors do not recommend that you fly in your third trimester, so you should be fine.

  • Im pretty sure you'll be fine! I traveled by plane from NY to TX when I was 36 weeks along! And I was completely fine! My doctor said that as long as I didnt have any issues with preterm labor and everything else looked great that Id be fine!

  • I flew at around 3 months. I was still dealing with morning sicknress and I didn't have it that bad, but I wanted to throw up the entire flight. Person next to me had terrible BO and guy across the aisle was eating a hamburger. Almost cried the whole way.

    Other than that it was fine, but definitely check with your doctor first.

  • I flew at 5 1/2 months.Walked thru Disney. I would not reccomend it for walking.
