  • Yes. Dr.s just don't want you to fly like the last month, or if you're on bed rest obviously.

  • Just because your pregnant doesn't mean you have to be in a bubble. What else are you going to do, swim to Hawaii?

  • I flew when I was 8 weeks and had no problems, if your concerned because of your own health issues then talk to your doctor beforehand.

  • Not trying to scare you just giiving my personal experiance. We flew from Las Vegas to Salt Lake city and back with in a week. IDK if it had anything to do with it but I ended up miscarrying the next day. I was about 6 weeks along. I have never read anything though saying that you shouldnt fly early. Only in late pregnancy does it seem to be a problem. If you are worried about it talk to your Dr. They can set your mind at ease alot better than we can. Congrats on that baby BTW

  • Flying only causes problems in the second half of the 3rd trimester when it can cause early labor.

    My sister in law is a flight attendant and worked (flying 5 days a week) until she was 7 and a half months pregnant.
