My first time actually trying to conceive, but not my first time getting pregnant (miscarriage last November).

My husband and I have decided we will not wait until the end of the year to start trying. I am nervous and excited all at the same time. I had an accidental (happy accident) pregnancy last November. I was about 4-5 weeks along when I miscarried. The doctor would not see me because I wasn't twelve weeks along. Not sure if this is the norm for all doctors? Also, I am supposed to fly to Florida at the end of this month. I am ovulating this week and hope to succeed, but does anyone know about flying so early in a pregnancy? I have read some places that you should not fly until your second trimester, my flight is supposed to be the day I would start my period if we did not conceive; so I don't know if any doctors would test me the week before I am supposed to fly. If anyone can help or give me any helpful hints on this or succeeding in conceiving I am all ears. Thanks!

Welcome to the board!

From what I understand, flying in and of itself won't harm you or the baby in the first trimester. I believe the reason they say not to fly until your second trimester is because that is when your risk of miscarriage goes down. Since you've already miscarried once - condolences for your loss - you might want to ask your doctor what the risk is that you might miscarry again and whether you should fly if you think you might be pregnant.
