You should be fine.

I flew to Myrtle Beach when I was 30 weeks and I had a great time. The flight was about 2 hours, but very cramped. I could have handled a longer flight if I had a bit more leg room. I suggest an aisle seat for bathroom trips. 

I got a note from my doctor stating I was ok’d to fly, since I looked pretty pregnant at that point but I didn’t end up needing it. Have fun!

I’m flying across the country from NC to CA, and I’ll be 27-28 weeks. My doctor is fine with it, but said I need copies of my medical records with me just in case.

@GardenRose:  We are going to Belize in November I’ll be 23/24 weeks pregnant. We are flying business class so we’ll have extra room to be cozy on the flight. I don’t think it should be a problem. I’ve been on 3 trips (via airplane) since I found out I was pregnant & those trips have been hard on me but mostly because I’m exhausted.

I felt way better around 28wks than earlier or later pregnancy so I think you’ll be fine. Enjoy your trip!

I had to make a 30 hour roadtrip (one way) at 20 weeks, and am making the 30 hour roadtrip back home tomorrow at nearly 32 weeks. I say you’re totally fine to do a domestic flight at 28 weeks, so long as you have no pregnancy complications.

@GardenRose:  I think you’ll be fine since you’ll be in your early third trimester.  It’s a short flight and it’s NYC.

I just want to wish you a fantastic trip! It’s amazing here at Christmastime, and I hope you get to enjoy every second of it. I can’t wait to take this baby in my belly to see the tree for the first time!

I say go and have a great trip. Take some extra breaks and you’ll be fine. People in NYC have babies all the time. 😉 Besides, gosh forbid anything did go wrong you’re surrounded by excellent medical care.

@GardenRose:  oh yeah, you should be fine, if all is well with your pregnancy.

Typically, your energy will be at its best and you won’t be TOO big to feel awkward getting around. and that’s not a long flight.
