    I don't have any experience to share. When I'm 30 weeks my brother is getting married in San Diego. I've asked my doctor's opinion and he says as long as everything is going ok with the pregnancy I'll be fine to fly there. I'm going to buy the tickets soon and get the insurance just in case so I get my money back if I can't go.

    All I can say is to ask your OB. I know plenty of people who travelled toward the end of their pg. With DD, I wasn't allowed to travel in my 3rd trimester due to PTL and my OB has already said that with twins, I shouldn't plan on travelling for the holidays (32/33 weeks). Hope you are able to make the trip safely.

    As long as there are no complications with your pregnancy and your OB clears it, it shouldn't be a problem. I traveled about 14 hours when I was 31/32 wks. We broke up the trip and stayed over night with my dad halfway. But just plan on stopping a lot for bathroom breaks and to walk around and get the blood circulating in your legs. And it is hard to sit for a long time, so bring lots of pillows!
