If you are traveling by plane
It’s safe to travel by plane during pregnancy, but more than any other passengers, you will need to stretch your legs and avoid blood clots. So get up, walk along the (small) aisle, stretch and stretch again. This is especially true for long flights.

Avoid eating and drinking anything that is served on the plane. The water quality is especially important. Bring your own water, your own food.

Again, don’t worry too much but be prepared. Traveling whilst pregnant can be a good vacation from pregnancy routine, but you need to stay safe too.
