For most women, traveling during pregnancy is safe. As long as you and your fetus are healthy, you can travel safely until you are 36 weeks pregnant.
The best time to travel is the middle of your pregnancy—between week 14 and week 28. Most common pregnancy problems happen in the first and third trimesters. During midpregnancy, your energy has returned, morning sickness usually is gone, and it is still easy to get around. Paying attention to the way you feel is the best guide for your activities.
*There are a few things you can do to make sure your trip is safe and comfortable:
Schedule a checkup with your obstetrician–gynecologist (ob-gyn) before you leave.
Know your estimated due date. If you have a problem while you are traveling, your caregivers will need to know how far along you are in your pregnancy.
Plan to bring any over-the-counter medications that you may need, such as pain relievers, hemorrhoid ointment, a first aid kit, and prenatal vitamins. Also bring any prescribed medications.
Check that you are up to date with your vaccines.
Think about how long it will take to get to your final destination. The fastest way often is the best.
Make your travel plans easy to change. Consider buying travel insurance to cover tickets and deposits that cannot be refunded.
##Even if you are in perfect health before going on a trip, you never know when an emergency will come up. If you are traveling in the United States, locate the nearest hospital or medical clinic in the place you are visiting.
