Can I travel on a plane during pregnancy?

International travel is safe until week 35; domestic is okay until week 36. Second-trimester trips are more comfortable since you’ll have a stronger stomach and won’t be lugging late-term heft. When flying, sit on the aisle to facilitate bathroom trips and so you can stand and stretch often. Be sure to carry your ob’s digits and your blood type, allergy, and pregnancy-risk info on the plane with you.
