Air Travel

Hi Mommas,
I am currently 6 weeks pregnant and I have flights booked for my 11th week. I asked my doctor and she said it is up to me if I want to travel. This is my second child but I am still nervous. Just want some advice. We are doing three flights and the longest is 4.5 hours.
Thanks for any advice!

Just remember to make an effort to get up and move about every 45 minutes to an hour. That's the biggest problem I see at that stage. Congrats on the baby .

I'll be 26 weeks when I fly to see my family I'm Florida. Doctor said it's fine. Just get some movement in :)

I drove 14 hours at 7 months pregnant just for a wedding.  Travelling is fine as long as you get up and do a little walking every few hours.  It will be fine.
