You can fly up until 28 weeks however you may need some vaccines for Thailand that you won't be able to have.

It depends on the airline until when they will let you fly. More expensive ones will take you til 36 weeks without a doctors note.
Flying isn't so much the problem but your destination. For Thailand you might need some vaccinations you won't be able to have in pregnancy.

Thank you girls smile
Iv been to Thailand heaps of times and I actually have chosen not to take any vaccinations - I work in natural health - lets see how natural i'll want to keep things on birth day lol!!

We are going to the south where theres not really a risk of tropical diseases its more the north you have to watch.

Im flying with Air India, they are not an expensive airline but the service is equal to that of british airways, they are fantastic - not great leg room but fantastic, especially if you love indian food smile
Anyway im going off topic - think im getting baby brain already lol

Thanks again xx
