So I have another post here about having cramping for over a week now & wondering whether its implantation cramping however only getting BFNs atm so still testing , AF due in about a week.
My Q is, we have an holiday booked to go see family abroad in Asia, two flight changes totally 12-14 hours in total, not to mention the hot temperatures there (around 35-40 degrees Celsius) . I have had a mc before in December , and if I do get a bfp as I'm hoping too I'm confused as to what to do? If pregnant would I be considered as 'high risk' bcz of a previous mc & should avoid flying? It's 1"a 3 week trip....
Forgot to say the trip is booked in May , for most of the month...
From what I've read and been told it's perfectly safe to travel while pregnant but most doctors as you not to after 30 or 34 weeks especially on long flights. I would still go especially if it's already booked! If you are pregnant make sure you get up every once in a while to move around the plane, drink lots of water and have little things to snack on if you need it. As for the heat just pack light weight clothes and take sunscreen. It gets pretty hot here in SOuth Carolina and very humid (making the heat index even higher). I'm due in mid July and I just have to make sure I stay well hydrated and as cool as possible, a/c, wear light weight breathable clothes when outside. If you're really concerned about it I would call your OB and talk with a nurse. Tell them there's a chance you may be pregnant, at what point your previous miscarriage was and your travel plans and see what they say.

I traveled in my first trimester into my second trimester to Europe. We were gone over 3 weeks. We went back to Europe my third trimester when I was 35 weeks. I was considered high risk, but Dr. Approved the trip.
I would go. If you turn out not to be pregnant you will really regret sitting at home with AF while everyone is having fun on vacation. Even if you are pregnant it is safe to fly until the 8th month. I doubt flying would cause a miscarriage as most are caused by the embryo not developing properly.
