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.
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
