My book says to check with your airline to see what their policy is and maybe also give your doc a wee call to double check what they think? xxx

Hi Bigred10

You are fine to fly up until you are around 8 months pregnant and that is when the majority of airlines won't accept you. I flew to Florida and back from the U.K (both 7 hour flights) when I was 9 weeks in August last year. The doctor said it was absolutely fine. Just make sure that you make your travel insurance company aware. x
