Quick Question

I am currently 7 weeks & 2 days pregnant. I was supposed to fly to Portland,  OR tomorrow to my mom and brothers but found out if I get on the plane, due to the air pressure I can get a miscarriage God forbid. When the most safest time for a pregnant woman to fly. The flight is only 1 hr 45 mins, From Las Vegas, NV to Portland, OR

I've never heard it is dangerous to fly at 7 weeks.  They begin to get nervous about a woman flying later than about week 36.

I've never heard this either. I flew at 12 weeks from Minnesota to Florida and back with no problems. Maybe it would be best to call and ask your doctor their opinion.

I wouldn't hesitate calling in to the office tomorrow so you don't have to wait. What part of Vegas? I used to live in Summerlin ages ago.

Usually safest is second trimester. First trimester is too risky, and third trimester it might put you into labor.
