I traveled at 32 weeks to pittsburgh -i was fine

but i will say also that i flew at 37 weeks - and i had my baby in boston - so that was too late

but if everything is going fine - your doc should not have a problem

I flew at 28 weeks. My dr said I could up until 36 weeks (which is the airline restriction).

Re: how far in your pregnancy did you fly?

I am 28 weeks now and personally I wouldn't fly for the rest of my pregnancy. That's just because of my prior history with a pre-term baby, I just wouldn't take the chance.

My cousin flew cross country to come to my wedding at 33 weeks with her doctor's clearance. Somewhere between 32 and 36 weeks is the usual cutoff.

The airlines have different rules so check w/yours.
I flew Virgin America and they let you fly up to a week before delivery w/o a dr note!!

Re: how far in your pregnancy did you fly?

I was due at the end of February and the last time I flew was mid-November (when I was around 24 weeks along). Even that was a little difficult (comfort-wise). Me & DH were supposed to go home for Christmas, but decided against flying at that point (I would have been 2 months before my due date - I guess around 32 weeks along). I just wasn't agreeable to the idea even if the airlines and my doctor would have allowed it. One of the main reasons simply being the major discomfort. I could barely sit in the theater for an hour movie or play. No way I could sit in a very crammed uncomfortable airplane for 3-5 hours Chat Icon

Pretty sure my doctors rule was up until 28w but I would be wrong. I would check with your OB.

Re: how far in your pregnancy did you fly?

I flew to San Antonio/Houston at 34 weeks in July. Other than redic amounts of swelling I was fine! My doc said flying is completely safe - he'd have me fly to work if he could - it's where you fly that matters. Go some where with a good medical system so that Gd forbid something happens, you and the baby would be safe. He said he'd rather me fly to Paris than Mexico.
