Q&A: Should I travel at 33 weeks?
I have had a healthy pregnancy up to this point. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant, and am supposed to go on a business trip (for seven days) when I am 33 weeks pregnant. The flight will be three hours over land. What are the risks of flying at this stage of pregnancy? Is there any benefit to going for a shortened trip?
At 33 weeks you will be just past the limit of recommended air travel during pregnancy. Is there any possiblity of taking your trip two weeks earlier so that your trip will be completed by your 32nd week of pregnancy?
If you do take that trip I strongly suggest you take it easy and drink plenty of water. Dehydration is a major cause of pre-term labor and air travel causes dehydration. And as always trust your instincts when it comes to fatigue.
