Am 3 weeks and 5 days and I like traveling. Me and my family just went to Dominican Republic and the doctor said it ok to travel. Next week am going to Spain and the doctor said ok to travel but I don't think I went to go because I don't want hurt the baby. I want a mother opinion.
I haven't traveled during my pregnancy yet but I did ask my doctor about it (I'm 17 wks tomorrow).
She says travel is fine, even a long distance international flight up to your 34th week of your pregnancy. She advised me not to do it after that.
If you are on the plane for hours, make sure to hydrate and get up and move every once in a while to prevent clots. I think it is every woman's personal decision. If you feel well and you know you can handle it, you'll be ok. If you get sick a lot, feel dizzy or experience other icky symptoms, maybe you should postpone your travel plans. Be safe!
