I usually work at home or close to home.

I have to go away soon for work for almost a week, they will be long days but no way out of it and I do want to go.

I'll be 31 weeks pg, obviously I'll take my notes with me and I've booked the MW the day before just in case of issues with blood pressure but wondered if anyone had any tips?

Recently made my last work trip at 33 1/2 weeks, if you're in ok shape it's very do-able, but do expect to be a lot more tired than usual! I underestimated this, and wished afterwards that I'd built a few more breaks into my plans, and chosen some more sociable flight times to allow for preg-somnia wink

My doctor also suggested that I get prescription fitted compression stockings (stronger than the ones you can normally buy at the chemist) for travel days in my third trimester, because even if the flights are short you tend to spend a lot of time sitting down in taxis, airports and meetings on either side. The stockings look fairly awful, but are surprisingly comfortable, and at least this cold weather makes them less conspicuous!
