If you are having a healthy pregnancy….it is definately safe. However, you should let your ob/gyn know….just to be careful!!

Have fun…hope you are going someplace fun!!

Yes its safe as long as you have not had any problems in your pregnancy, one bit of advice buy a pair of surgical tights and wear them on the plane they stop DVT’s your more at risk of DVT’s because of your pregnancy even on short flights and make sure you get up once or twice and walk up and down the cabin just to keep the blood flowing well.


i wondered that same question. the only thing i came up with is that its not recommended if you have breathing or heart problems due to the fact that the air pressure changes. so if you have no real complications you should be fine.

With my first pregnancy I traveled up until my 33rd week. I had a job that required travel and flew over 25,000 miles during that pregnancy. A 2-3 hour flight should not be a problem especially at this early stage in your pregnancy. I am currently pregnant again (27 weeks) and am flying a 3 hour flight 2 weeks from today. If you are uncomfortable, get up and walk to the rest room a couple times during the flight to stretch your legs. Enjoy your trip!
