The main problem is the alcohol. Heavy drinking in the first 8 weeks of pregnancy can affect the fetus. Discuss this with your gynaecologist.

I'm not sure about the yellow fever injection, but usually the baby doesn't absorb stuff from you until about 6-8 weeks.

Flying wouldn't do any harm.

The best is to go to your dr, he won't be mad, just be able to monitor you better
