I flew quite a bit with my two past pregnancies. Once I got about to where you were it was more uncomfortable. You can actually feel the baby's pressure more when you fly. Especially when you are taking off and landing. My doctor didn't recomment flying past 7 mths because of this. It made me feel a little sick too. (I have a weak stomach anyways!) Hope this helps

We just flew to Vegas and back from MN last week. I am also 29 weeks pregnant. I didn't notice anything different with the baby in flight. We had some turbulence upon landing so I felt nauseous and had a headache getting off the plane. But that might have been the same pregnant or not. I had to go through the scanner at security on the way out and had an extra security check on the way home. I think the TSA wanted to make sure I was really pregnant. Other then that, it was flying as usual.

I flew when I was 32 wks. It felt fine no problems.
