Is It Safe To Fly When You're Pregnant?I was afraid to get into my car when I was pregnant let alone an airplane.
However, many women wonder whether or not it's safe to fly when pregnant. The following article pretty much gives the green light up to 35 weeks unless you are experiencing certain complications.

Although the article briefly discusses exposure to radiation on airplane flights, I should mention that I knew a fertility doctor who would not let his clients fly during and after their fertility treatments because of the exposure to radiation at high altitudes. Read more:
Decreased air pressure during flight may slightly reduce the amount of oxygen in your blood, but this isn't likely to cause problems if you're otherwise healthy. Likewise, the radiation exposure associated with air travel at high altitudes isn't thought to be problematic for most business or leisure travelers. There's a caveat for frequent fliers, however. Pilots, flight attendants and others who fly often might be exposed to more radiation than is considered safe during pregnancy. If you must fly frequently during your pregnancy, discuss it with your health care provider. He or she might limit your total flight time during pregnancy.
