    lilceeja124 :  you can fly from Dublin to Kerry which only takes about 30/40min then it’s a 1hr 20min drive. You could fly to Dublin do an overnight, relax and rest and then head off the next day.

    lilceeja124 :  I would, but that’s just me. I traveled to Hawaii from Alaska (6 hours) when I was pregnant three times. Once at 29 weeks, again at 24 weeks (second pregnancy) and then again at 35 weeks. No issues. I also took quite a few shorter flights (2-3.5 hours). I love to travel, had low-risk pregnancies and got the go ahead from my midwives every time.

    I did a 24 hour flight at 32 weeks, which in hindsight was probably a bit risky, but it was fine. Mostly hot and uncomfortable. I was okay at 29 weeks, and did a few international flights after that point. Unfortunately, the most expensive trip and the one we were planning as our baby moon….I ended up passing out in the airport minutes before boarding and we were unable to travel. I definitely recommend travel insurance and looking into the airline’s guidelines. You may need medical clearance and some airlines won’t accept you for international flights after 28 weeks.

    The money would be my main consideration here!

    lilceeja124 :  I traveled to Mexico from Canada around 27 weeks and it was ok but that was only like 6 hours flight. Just make sure to get compression stockings etc and get up and move around…. but you’d basically just have to check with your OB. 

    I wasn’t too huge in terms of a bump but one thing to get is a doctors note from your OB stating your ok to fly and that your only so may weeks along because most airlines have a policy pregnant women can’t fly past a certain point because it’s a liability if you went into labor on the flight….if your visibly pregnant (and the bump is big)… the person checking you in can refuse to let you board unless you have an official document from your doctor with the thumbs up!

    pink.lemonade :  yes! I forgot about that…. and also have to look at the fine print as travel insurance sometimes doesn’t cover “pregnancy” related issues because it’s a “pre-exsisting condition” 🙄
