  • As long as you don't have any other issues then you will be fine. I have one more flight planned before baby comes and I will be 8 months along then I just talked to my doctor about it today and he was completely fine with it. My OB would rather I fly than drive at this point. If it is a long flight just try to get up and walk a bit if possible. The planes are pressurised and the altitude shouldn't be an issue. I'm assuming that you are flying a large commercial airline.

  • You should be unless your having a high risk pregnancy. Did your Dr say it was ok to fly? The Dr's opinion should matter more than ours dear.

  • yeah, travel should stop at 7 or 8 months

    make sure the airline doesn't have rules about pregos flying- if you're really big they might not let you lol

  • I'm pretty sure the altitude won't do anything. I'm not an expert though.

  • yea, you'll be fine as long as you're not high risk. uncomfortable, but fine.
