    Personally no, I always have premi's but my main concern would be ... if i go to America (for example) & deliver there .. not only would it cost a fortune! ... And would be all completly different ... I would be concerned that I would have an American child and I would be worried about their visa and how long I would be stuck there...

If bubs is in hospital and then maybe not given clearance to fly for 3 months, that means a pretty hefty accommodation bill and you're stuck there with potentially limited (or no) support. Yes, the OP has family in the place she's going, but is the hospital she would need to deliver in next to her family or maybe it's 2 hours away.

    It's not as simple as saying that all countries with a reciprocal agreement are ok (and there are only a few countries on that list by the way).

    Hi Trishalishous, I wouldn't go - I would wait until your next scheduled trip when the bub has arrived safely. I've just decided to go to Melbourne for the weekend (from Adelaide) at 33 weeks. I think I will be pushing it just doing that and I am having a low risk pregnancy so far. Gran will understand. Maybe you can send a DVD message to her for her birthday.

    I wouldn't. My concern wouldn't be the fact that the baby might come early, it'd be that if the baby DID come early, wouldn't that mean they were a citizen of the country they were born in, leading to a pain in the bum organising citizenship for them when you got home?

    I don't know how these things work, but that'd be my paranoia lol.

    I travelled overseas at 32 weeks with my doctor's permission for a 7 day holiday and it didn't worry me but I don't have a history of early labours and I have relatively easy pregnancies. In your situation- probably not.

    I wouldn't either. Isn't there a cutoff from so many weeks where you aren't allowed to fly?
