    I've flown in the first trimester of both of my successful pregnancies. It's a total non-issue. Absolutely no need to see a doctor about it!

    I'm flying to London when I'll be 15 weeks. There is absolutely no issue with flying early in your pregnancy. It's the third trimester that is more of a concern.

    The only concern with flying is the risk that you go into labour mid-flight.

    To be truthfully blunt if you were to miscarriage at 6 weeks there is a) nothing you can do to prevent that and b) would have occurred regardless if you flew or not.

    I flew Perth to London and back in my first tri, as well as shorter internal flights within Europe while we were there. Also did some intra state flights within WA for work. Asked my ob before hand, she had absolutely no issue with it, just advised to drink lots of water and move around as much as possible.
    I continued to fly throughout my pregnancy, was never advised otherwise.

    I flew to NZ at 10wks & back at 12wks. My ob just advised me to wear those compression stockings as pregnant woman (according to her) are more at risk of getting deep vein thrombosis. This was what she recommended to all her patients no matter what gestation and it was only a recommendation not a condition of travel. Needless to say I didn't wear the stockings as I hate them with a passion.

    You also don't need to notify the airline until you're in your 3rd trimester.

    I'm off to NZ for two weeks in about 10 days, I'm 12 weeks the day we leave - my GP said no problem, she seemed surprised I even bothered to ask! She didn't mention the stockings, but I might just in case

    I don't think it's an issue at all. I have flown plenty of times during all trimesters. It was only past 35 weeks that I stopped.
