Hi

You should also check with the airlines, some of them do not allow you to fly depending on how far pregnant you are aswell. But otherwise flying is perfectly save.

It is safe to fly up until 32 weeks. I have the same dilemma but my gynae said it is still okay for me to fly since I am not 32 weeks yet. If it is a ling flight just get up every hour or so to keep the circulation going.
