How long is it safe to fly while you're pregnant?

I'm 6 months, I'm planning on asking my dr. but thought I'd check here first since he's out of town for a couple of days.

  • My pregnancy is low risk and my midwife told me not to fly after 37 weeks. She said that in the last trimester if your flight is longer than about an hour to get up and walk around for a couple of minutes every so often.

  • I am 28 weeks and my doctor told me that they do not recomend flying after 28 weeks, so I decided against it and missed my friends wedding. I did read online that women were flying clear up until later in their pregnancy. You just have to go with the pro's and con's.
