I'll be 24 weeks tomorrow & will be flying in a weeks time. When I flew a few weeks ago I was sick on the plane which is something that's never happened to me before. As I have a complete phobia about being sick (was more worried about morning sickness than having to give birth) I would really appreciate any advice to try & stop it happening again.
I used to get travel sick as a child, it got miles better with age and I generally dont have any problems on planes ect anymore.
But with being pregnant I am like I was when I was seven. Awful, and embarassing. Plus now the vomiting doesnt actually make me feel better whereas before at least once I had been sick all the nausea was magically gone.
Take a bag, if nothhing happens then all the better. Apparently easyjet or some other crappy no frills airline now makes you pay for an airsickness bag. Now that IS sick.
If they tried to charge me for a bag think I'd just be sick on the floor. What would they prefer, clearing up sick or issuing a free bag. Guess I'm just going to have to hope for the best. Absolutely dreading it.
I had the same when landing and threw up all over DD once!! she was horrified! Funny now since having the children I get car sick, bus sick, aeroplane sick, infact I cannot even go on a swing or roundabout with the children anymore because my motion sickness is awful. A friend of mine who is a nurse said thats not unusual after having children but I don't know why. Agree that just sucking a mint and closing eyes and willing yourself through it is helpful but also have those bags handy!! enjoy the flight!
I got travel sick when pregnant but I have a horrible phobia of sick so I just refused to travel anywhere more than about 30mins, unless I was driving, which for some reason seemed OK, although still not good.
I've got a phobia about being sick & can't really put into words how worried I am about flying. Although it's important I go I've still thought about cancelling the trips just to avoid the stress of flying. If my midwife told me I couldn't fly I'd be relieved.
