We will be flying 3.5 hrs to Sydney at 13 weeks.. I normally have issues with swelling anyway so stockings are a must for me. GP says preg women are more prone to clotting so they would be an idea anyway..
Most airlines do have a rule.. No fly in 3rd trimester so no liability if u go into labour at 30000 ft. I think it's more a common sense thing.. If you hit heavy turbulence strapped in your seat at 36 weeks there may be some cause for concern!!

I flew at 14 weeks, not quite 1st tri thou, my OB said no worries just walk around a couple of times during the flight.

I flew Sydney to Perth return (in the space of 30 hours) in week 6, Sydney to Canberra return in week 9 and have to fly again next week (wk 13) for work. No issues. The only thing I would recommend is bringing something to eat as the plane meal is often not pregnancy- friendly (or very appetising if you have MS like I did)

Laurs I have flowen every 3 weeks during most of my pregnancy for work with no issues and full clearance from my OB. I def agree to take some snacks early on - even though you get food on the plane I found with my MS sometimes it wasbt quick enough. Drink lots of water the further along you are.
I stopped my last trip at 31w mostly due to it being tiring tagged onto a work day but was finding the seats less comfortable!!!
