any advice for me?

my hubby and i are planning for a 2nd honeymoon in Bali, Indonesia. I'm gonna have to fly there by airplane ( dduuhh..what other way to go there right?) . so the question is, is it safe for me to fly? would the pressure harm my pregnancy in any way? help!

  • Depends on how far along you are. At certain stages, you aren't allowed to fly.

  • It is totally safe. I think it's in the third trimester, particularly in the 8th and 9th months, that you shouldn't fly. I flew while pregnant with both of my children and was totally fine.

    Good luck on your trip! Have lots of fun!

  • If you have never been airsick before,,, you might be this time,,, talk to your dr about safe motion sickness pills or whatever. I was so embarrassed when I got airsick on my honeymoon, I was about 12 weeks, and it was a hot and crowded flight.

  • I would say it is safe at 8 weeks. Dr told me not to fly after 30 weeks... Airline probably wouldn't let you on after that anyway as they are afraid of you going into labor in air! :-) Have a wonderful time!!! Congratulations!
