  • You should ask your doctor. Because i think it depends on you pregnany, like if your high risk or not. And how far along you are.

  • Most of the time it is perfectly safe. I flew with DS #1 5 months pregnant and DS #2 8 weeks pregnant with absolutely no problems. Just make sure you get up and stretch and drink lots of water.

  • I agree with the first poster. Some doctors don't like you to fly in your last trimester, especially if you have any risks.
