    Default Traveling at 5 months pregnant

    I'm 12w today and am going on holiday to Japan in march! (Thanks dad!!)

    I will be 5months by then and am trying to prepare for anything I'll need. My dad organized travel insurance for us all and I contacted them to 'upgrade' mine to cover pregnancy but they don't have any sort of policy to cover anything pregnancy related.

    Does anyone think its necessary to have specific pregancy insurance whilst traveling at 5months? Should I change insurance companies?
    We are going for 2 weeks.

    If it was me I'd change companies. I like to know I'm covered for all eventualities.

    Make sure the airline knows you'll be pregnant too, and see if they want a letter from your Dr saying you're ok to travel.

    Compression socks are a great idea for the flight, because you'll be more susceptible to clots.

    DH and I went to Japan last July and had an amazing time, it's such an awesome country!

    Most insurance companies will not cover you for anything pregnancy related after a certain point, I'm not sure how many weeks that would be. I'd guess at 5 months preg you wouldn't be covered. Maybe call them and ask if they'd cover you at that gestation.

    That would mean that if you were to go into premature labour while in Japan you would be up for all costs associated which could be extremely expensive.

    Japan is amazing with fantastic medical facilities but without insurance I wouldn't risk it. Hope you find insurance that will cover you!
