Unless your Dr tells you otherwise it's usually considered safe to travel on a plane until the last month. Rideing in a car is also safe just get out and walk for 15 min every two hours to keep the circulation in your legs going.

It should be perfectly fine.  If you are worried,  ask your doctor.  Congrats!

And yes, 5 weeks is perfectly safe as long as your doctor has given you the ok. As you get further along restrictions may be placed, as in how far from home you can go and if you are able to fly.

thanks a lot for your info. these days I'm experiencing some bleeding......so scared.....what should i do?
Bleeding in early pregnancy can be quite nirmsl, although very scary.  Call your doctor and get them know.   They can take blood work 48 hrs apart to make sure your hcg is raising as it should be.  Drink 80ozs of water or more a day.  It keeps your uterus hydrated.  Keep your feet up as much as possible.  
I bled from week 6 to 16 of my pregnancy,  my twins are heading towards 4.  Hang in there!!!

Call your Dr. It could be nothing but it's best to check.

That sounds to me like an implantation bleed or SCH. It is not terribly uncommon and is the highest cause of bleeding in the first trimester. I have the clot but as to date have not began bleeding. I am 9 weeks today. Some women never bleed and their bodies absorbs it.

The doctors have put no restrictions on me other than no sex. I am very physically active, working out 6 days a week.

Whenever you bleed they will do a sonogram to make sure baby is well. So glad all is good my friend!
