Is it safe to fly if I'll be 12 weeks when I plan to take a trip.

Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It should be perfectly safe. They don't start restricting pregnant women from flying until about 36 weeks unless they are a high risk pregnancy. Talk to your dr. He or she will be able to tell you more.

I heard the best time to take a trip is in your second trimester. I think it begins at 13 or 14 weeks. Just to be sure I would put it off for a few weeks.

Flying in early pregnancy is safe. However, during the first trimester, the main concern over flying is making your symptoms, like morning sickness, worse. (You may want to make sure you have a extra few sick bags nearby, just in case.) And a mildly stuffed-up nose on the ground could become much worse once you’re in the air.Women who are having any sort of complications associated with their pregnancy or who are considered to be ‘high risk’ should not travel. This includes women with poorly controlled diabetes, sickle cell disease, placental abnormalities, hypertension or those at risk for premature labor.

Take a copy of your medical records too, where you are going. I had to fly for business during my second trimester and my doctor gave me a copy of them just in case.
