Will anything happen to me or the baby when I fly. I'm only 34-35 weeks.

Check with both your Dr and the airline. Some airlines have specific rules of how pregnant you can be to fly. Your Dr. will likely have to provide a note allowing you to fly. From my understanding it is not recommended that late in the pregnancy. I think it has to do with air pressure.

My doctor told me that while most women are able to fly until 36 weeks, he was of the opinion that for me, flight after 32 weeks could result in spontaneous abortion. Not a desireable result. Also, most airlines won't let you fly past 36 weeks, since flight attendants are not trained to deliver babies, and an emergency landing may not be possible. So, check with your doctor first, and then check with the airline.
