nstrans1 :  I’m traveling to Europe when I’ll be 8-9 weeks.  My only real concern is puking on the poor person sitting next to me!

For what it is worth, not everyone gets morning sickness.  I have been pregnant twice (first pregnancy was miscarriage, currently 38 wks with 2nd pregnancy), and I did not get sick either time.  I did have some food aversions pretty strongly during the first trimester.  (Mainly meat and anything with garlic/onion, but it really wasnt a big deal)  So maybe you will get lucky!

I traveled at 9-10 weeks with pretty bad morning sickness and it wasn’t too bad.  I did throw up on the plane a couple times, but I could tell that I was getting really quesy so I was able to make it the bathroom. (sat on the toliet with the lid down and used a throw-up bag- I would not recommend kneeling on airplane bathroom floor!) So, definitely grab an extra throw-up bag (or ask for some from a flight attendant).  

While we were on the trip I actually felt a lot better than at home- it’s nice to have fun distractions if you’re feeling quesy. 

p.s. I’ve actually kept a couple of their throw-up bags in my purse since- in case of an emergency! lol.

Europe is fine. I did 2 very long haul trips in the first Tri and I was fine. My recommendation would be to get prescription nausea meds just in case. And take lots of water and carb-y snacks for the flight in case the food doesn’t agree with you. Be prepared to take it a bit easy on the trip too 🙂

I travel almost every week for work (9 weeks pregnant) and it’s been fine! I would recommend getting some 25 mg B6 tablets and Unisom tablets (the ones with doxylamine) to take with you just in case. 25mg of B6 3 times a day, and a half tab of Unisom in the morning and at night works like a charm!

And congrats!!
