I flew through 36 weeks with both pregnancies. Then switched to train travel for week 37 My doctor was 100% fine with it as the last few weeks the trips were shorter (1-2 hours) and I was otherwise healthy. Talk to your doctor.

My doctor said I could fly up to 35 weeks, but the last time I did was at 28 weeks. My teams worked with me so I didn’t have to travel after that point and others on the team traveled instead. Doctor made it clear that I needed to be getting up every hour and wearing compression socks to my knee if I was going to be traveling. Pregnant women get blood clots easier. I’d say, do whatever you and your doctor are comfortable with. Good luck!

I flew up to 32 weeks for both. It’s fine. Ditto D1 on moving around

I flew up to 30 weeks and was fine

I flew up to 34 weeks and was fine.

I flew through both of my pregnancies and had three long range international flights during my second pregnancy. Normal pregnancies with both so my doctor was ok with the international trips until 32 weeks and domestic was ok until 36 weeks. Agree with Deloitte 1 that you should just do what you are comfortable with.

Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/

Well I'm a first time mom and feel home bound running the baby cycles. My baby is not a good sleeper so I feel like I am on 24/7. When he is a asleep in doing the usual bottles, dinner etc. I feel like I need more confidence to get myself and baby out of the house with everything in tow but I suppose walking through malls could help. Houston heat doesn't make it ideal to walk around outside during the day. I also do the night cycles solo so I'm pretty much too exhausted to do anything but want to get more scheduled about it so I can plan on an hour here and there when my husband gets home.

It has impacted my romantic relationships and causes constant anxiety at work because I feel like a helpless child inside, lack confidence and self worth and fear failure. Appreciate any EMDR experiences.
