Anyone ever flown while pregnant? My BFF went when she was about 18 weeks and hated it. We are going to FL in two weeks to visit my mom. I know it's generally safe for pregnant women (unless you have a specific high risk situation) but I'm nervous the take off and landing will have me vomiting everywhere.
Someone tell me it's not that bad.
I'm flying from California to Washington DC at the end of May and I'm really worried about flying as well. I spoke with my Dr about it at my most recent appointment and he said typically flying isn't dangerous, even if you are high risk. If you don't typically get motion sickness I don't think you would vomit? Unless you have extremely bad MS. You'll have to let us know how it goes so that I know what to expect. XD
Good to know about it being relatively safe.
I hope your flight goes well too! I had horrendous MS with DD and thankfully I haven only got sick once so far. I had awful motion sickness after DD but it's gotten better so we'll see. Will definatly update as we plan to tell my mom about #2 when we get to FL.
I flew twice during my last pg.... once I was 18wks and the second time I was 22. No issues at all.

I just flew from NY to FL yesterday. I'm 14 weeks. Was not bad at all, but I haven't had any MS. I had a lot of little snacks though bc it was in the evening during dinner time. And I drank a lot of water. I took an empty travel mug into the airport w me and filled up at the restroom drinking fountains. My legs got a little crampy but I tried to exercise them as much as I could while in my seat.

I flew last year when I was pregnant at 18 weeks also. I didn't think it was bad. I did feel pretty sick when we took off and landed but that was the only time I felt bad. My doctor told me it was safe. She said she just wouldn't want me flying close the end of the pregnancy in case I were to go into labor. I'm sure you will be fine. Enjoy your trip!
I flew at 8 weeks with DD, was fine I remember Taking a lot of lollies!
I have just been alerted to the fact that in the US 'lollies' means something different to what it does here...
No, I did not take a lot of drugs...I took a lot of candy/sweets (here lollies = candy)
I flew to Hawaii from Los Angeles when I was 18 weeks pregnant last time. No problems at all!

I fly quite frequently and while pregnant with DD I flew at 8 weeks pregnant and at 32 weeks. I didn't have MS with DD but I did take a lot of hard candies to suck on and I was fine. The worst part was flying at 32 weeks because DS was still under 2 and therefore sat on my lap. It was most uncomfortable!
