Australia

My husb and I were planning to go to Australia to see friends for three weeks in November - until I found out I would be giving birth in December!
Now we're considering bringing the trip forward to September, so I'll be between 26 and 30 weeks preggers while we are away.
Not planning to do anything TOO energetic while we are there, but am I completely mad even to consider it at that stage?
First pregnancy, so can't imagine how I'll feel/what size I'll be then.

Does cancellation insurance still cover you if you have to cancel because of some problem arising in the pregnancy? Just wondering. I'd say you should have no worries, especially with a first pregnancy. I flew from Oz to Europe at 23 weeks in my third pregnancy and found it no problem, but we had lots of legroom because we were in the seats at the front with a bassinet for my second. The legroom really makes a difference, you wouldn't want to be cooped up trying to fit your bump (not to mention the bum which begins to be an issue for some of us!) and legs into a standard economy seat.

You need to check that the airline you book will allow you to fly. Some don't allow you to fly after 28 weeks without a doctor's note. the rules change with different airlines.
