flying at 29 weeks

Currently 16+6 and trying to squeeze in one last holiday as just the two of us before dc1 arrives.

I'm aware I'll need a midwife or doctors note to fly at 29 weeks, so would it be crazy to book it before the 20 week scan? Pg low risk so far....

Anyone else have any experience booking holidays abroad for further down the line in their pregnancy?

Check if your travel insurance would cover you if you had to cancel due to pregnancy related complications?

No idea why I didn't think of that, thankyou rockchick!

You won't need a note for a short haul flight at 29 weeks.

Well unless you fly Ryanair and they're looking for a reason not to let you on.

I'm on second pregnancy & in both have booked flights at least 10 weeks before flying during pregnancy. Travel insurance usually covers you if you need to cancel for any medical reasons. Enjoy your hol!

I'm booked th fly at 36 +5 and have flown at many times throughout the pregnancy. If you worry about everything going wrong during your pregnancy (particularly when everything has been perfect to now) life will pass you by. And if something does happen at your 20 wk scan, cancelling some flights will be the last thing you will care about.

Thanks all! That's really helped. We have insurance with our travel agent so I'll check we're covered tomorrow morning. Definitely not considering scrapping the holiday, just wondered whether to wait a bit longer before booking smile
