Work travel (flying) in early pregnancy

Hi all. I need some advice about a business day trip which I need to do next week. I'm 6wks pregnant and I'll need to take two 3hr flights (in the same day) to get to and back from a meeting. I know that flying isn't much of a risk, especially as it's just a few hours, but should I inform my employer of my pregnancy for insurance purposes. I really don't want to, we were hoping to hold off telling anyone until 12wks, but this has been Spring on me last minute ! Any advice would be really helpful smile. Thanks

Can you check your work travel insurance policy? Mine automatically covered me for pregnancy without my employer having to inform them.

We are only an small consultancy with ~20 employees, I don't know where those policies are kept... I'll have to go ask, lol. Thanks
