Check w/ Dr just in case, but usually as long as your having a normal pregnancy w/no complications you can travel by air until end of last trimester. Check with local airlines about their policies, each one may be different.

Also, just take things slow while you are at the airport. I flew at around 25 weeks and was rushing and sweating and out of breath. About a week after I got back I was put on bed rest because my cervix is short, meaning the baby is putting a lot of pressure on it. I believe the more you take it easy, the better off you will be.

I'm just shy of 28 weeks and will be flying from southern cali to Michigan in a little over two weeks, just to be on the safe side I got a doctors note and checked with the airlines. So it may be a good idea to get a doctors note before you go, to hopefully avoid any problem situations, good luck. Happy Flying : ).

It should be fine. Just make sure you stay hydrated and get up to stretch often so that you keep your circulation going well. Double check w/ your doc just to be safe and make sure the airline is fine w/ letting you on at this pt. Overall though it shouldn't be a problem.
