Planes?

A question for my friend she's only 11 weeks she's going on a plane trip.
Her doctor said it was okay
My doctor said for any pregnancy u must be 14 to 27 weeks for the % of a miscarriage going down it would be a little safer.
The book my doctor gave me says the same thing.
And the app my doctor wanted me to get for my All info and to get info about the baby and stuff that I will need etc says the same thing
The internet says 14 to 27 weeks
What do you girls think or what has your doctor said to you? Just trying to help a friend out I don't want her to lost or hurt her baby

My Doctor said if I wanted to travel I'd have to be atleast 14 weeks before I can and then when I get to 37 weeks I wouldn't be able too

I don't know where you're getting this information Smile,  but in general you can travel until late pregnancy.  Almost nothing you do in early pregnancy makes a difference on whether you miscarry or not,  and there's nothing doctors will do for you if you do start to miscarry before 14 weeks.

This might help you clarify. It's kind of all about comfort in travel, and not safety.  

In the first trimester,  mothers are more likely to feel queasy and nauseated during plane travel.  Not a safety factor,  but just a comfort thing.

I went on a 3 hour flight when I was 10 weeks. My midwife had no problems with it. Just said to not walk threw certain xray machines
