Your flying in your 3rd trimester which doctors really don't want you to be doing. The reason is you may go into labor early. You may even get turned around from entering Germany because of the potential to be using their health care system. What I would do is call your travel insurance agency and ask them.

Actually, many doctors are okay with women flying in the third trimester, it depends on the risk factors. I have never heard of another country turning you around. Airlines, however, will stop women who appear to be past 34 or 35 weeks. Flying is NOT a risk factor for pre-term birth, however, you don't want to deliver on an airplane, and airlines don't want that either. Many women traveling while pregnant get notes from their doctor, every airline has a stated policy on flying while pregnant.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

Make sure to get a dr. Note stating your due date in case an airline employee thinks you are farther along than you are. I just flew domestically this week and I was fine except the million trips to the bathroom. I'm 30weeks.

Make sure your doctor is okay with it, get a note for the airline. Also, when you're flying, make sure you get up and walk around often. You dont' want a blood clot.

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.
