Long Distance Flight in very early pregnancy

I just found out I'm 4w4d pregnant.  Although, I don't have any symptoms as of yet, I am concerned about my long distance Int'l flight (14hours) next week.  My first Prenatal Check-up is scheduled on 4/3/07 after coming back to the U.S.  This is a trip I cannot avoid, so please advise what I should be careful during the flight/ trip.
Thank you.

I was 5 weeks when I had to fly back to the states from Korea. I just got up and went to the bathroom often.

I flew early in my 1st pregnancy - but checked with my Ob first.  They said there was no problem with flying - even long trips - during pregnancy.  The problems arise later - NOT due to the actualy flying but being away from your OB office JUST IN CASE you were to go into labor.  I know you said you had an apt after you return but you should be able to contact the office and speak to an OB nurse who can ease your mind.  : )  HTH
