I need to travel outside the country in February in which I will be 28 1/2 weeks. My husband is giving me a hard time but I have been looking for information and it seems its not a problem. Even my doctor said I should post pone but I must travel.

I have flown 3 times during my pregnancy the first flight i was 16 weeks and we went to Minorca ( 2 hr flight )

Then the next one i was 18 weeks going to florida and 20 coming back .( 9 hrs)

Then the more recent one was in december i was 29 weeks pregnant and we went to Gran Canaria.( 4 hrs on plane ) I know how you must be feeling as i was quite worried about this one being 29 weeks . I did need a doctors letter to say i was fit although she did me one no problem, This depends on your airlines policy , most let you fly short haul up to 34 weeks. Also i had added insurance just to be sure.
All my holidays were already booked otherwise i dont think i would have gone .
Just remember if you do decide to go drink lots of water on the plane and before and after and keep walking around the plane to keep the circulation going. I wore flight socks too.

Ive had an easy pregnancy and have been lucky and its my first.
Whatever you decide to do good luck with your pregnancy. and baby.
