I've flown several times pregnant virgin overseas to Fiji and jet star domestic and i had to provide my letter of fit to fly. I always got one after 20 weeks just in case and they just asked for it, took a copy I provided and checked me in. Much easier to have one to save hassles.
As to how they enforce it, it is up to their discretion. It's up to them to if they feel they need clarification on dates or health, and yes they can refuse you if they feel you are not fit and do not have a medical clearance.

Id thought I update this thread.
A friend who is 30wks pregnant was scheduled to fly back to France with Emirates.
She had a doctor certificate saying there was no complication and she was fit to fly.
She got denied boarding because the certificate did not specify whether it was a single or multiple pregnancy.
So it does happen!
I have checked that my certificate has all the information required by Jetstar even though Im under the threshold for demanding a certificate.
I'll wear my pregnancy clothes that make me look fat rather than UTD too 😁

Flying pregnant with Jetstar
Wow, how ****ed was your friend? I'd be furious! What did she end up doing?

she was out of pocket too for the fare difference :-/
she was very stressed out :-(
I encountered no issue at all. No question asked on the way out as I was wearing a very lose top. On the way back though I was wearing a fitted top and the guy at check in just asked how many weeks I was and how I was feeling.
Then he wrote on my boarding pass "pregnant - 27wks" and that was it!
