I am contemplating a shortish plane trip inter-state at 32 weeks pregnant. It was booked before pregnancy and is a spritual pilgrimage of sorts which I am looking forward to doing with baby in belly and is not something that I can just do later. Nothing physical at all. I would be away for only 3 days before the return flight. Flight is 3 and a half hours one way and 4 and half return. Air-line says ok and Obstetrician says ok, but of course a mother always worries. I remember I flew at 3 months pregnant many years ago (too dumb to realise there was any risk at all) and had no probs and enjoyed the flight. Now is very different of course as I will be further along.
Having done alot of research, there seems to be no evidience that flying causes premature birth, but more to the point that if one is to go into premmie labour on the plane or away from home, how unpleasant that may be. I'm scheduled for c-section and I suppose the postiive is that it isn't a long flight.
Still undecied, but am looking for any experienced preggy flyers and what the experience was like for you.
