  • Ask the doctor to make sure even if you get advice from someone else.

  • Most airlines will allow you to fly but they usually require a note from your doctor stating that it is safe to fly. The main concern is that they don't want someone flying that could possibly go into labor while in flight. I had plans to fly at 32 weeks with my first son but when I went to my appointment at 31 weeks to get my note to fly my doctor put me in the hospital instead for pre-eclampsia. :)
