    Default High risk pregnancy and flying in second trimester

    Hey everyone
    I have been diagnosed with vasa previa which will put me in the high risk category once I reach my third trimester. I am currently 21 weeks and am due to fly in two weeks time (2 hour flight). I was wondering what your thoughts were on flying with a risky pregnancy? I'm not sure if I'm over reacting at this stage or should I stay home and rest up? Will air pressure have any adverse affects?

    Have you asked your obstetrician? It sounds low risk to fly for two hours only and I don't think the flight would do anything, but I would always ask your OB or midwife.
