DP has suggested going to Paris for a few days in just over 2 weeks, when I'll be 33 weeks/ 33 + 4 on my return. It would be nice to get away for a few days I think, and I have checked the airline (Air France) and they would take me ok. I don't think I would be insured with the usual travel insurance (through bank) past 28 weeks so I plan to call them tomorrow and check if they can do an add on to the policy. Am I mad to be considering this? My pregnancy has been low risk and no probs with baby etc so far, but I am recovering from whooping cough at the moment so am quite tired. I am hoping that in another two weeks I should be over it completely but am I rushing a bit? I don't think putting it off is an option given the dates so if we don't go then I don't think we will be able to go at all really before baby arrives- and I would really love to get a few lovely romantic days away without kids!
Don't think flying is the issue as airline ok- i am going to call the insurance company this morning but I imagine they will either say 'no' and I will have to get alternative cover, or i will be able to pay a one off amount to cover me.
Thing is, Eurostar will be longer, more expensive and (therefore) less comfy I think, as well as more inconvenient as we live v close to Manchester Airport so flying much easier! Air France don't have any restrictions but advise against travel in final month. I also thought it might be worth getting a doctors note just in case, or is this unnecessary? I do have a not inconsiderable bump!
I did as had booked Eyrisuaney with family before knew I was pregnant five everyone notice to book time IFC work etc. u dud need a letter from thd GP to confirm I was low risk/fit to fly etc. I was fine but though I am a big walker (was still a gym bunny then too) I did get very tired and have to sit down a lot looking after everyone's coats and bags
Looks positive then folks ( lots of sitting in cafes required) Have just called Halifax insurance and they won't cover me but I don't think that's a deal breaker, we will just have to purchase separate cover for me and make sure I have a EUHC (I understand that there are a few companies who will insure pregnant women so I'm sure it won't be too dear given that it is only for four days)
