Traveling While You're Pregnant

Got a babymoon in the Bahamas on the brain? Or planning a trip across the country to visit family before baby arrives? Go for it! The fact is, it's usually pretty safe for women with low-risk pregnancies to travel. (Of course, consult your doctor first -- especially if you're high-risk). So book your flight, pack your bags and check out these must-read tips for traveling while pregnant.

Take Advantage of the Second Trimester
Flying to your destination? When you're pregnant, the best time for air travel is during your second trimester, when the risk of miscarriage is significantly lower and -- for most women, anyway -- morning sickness has subsided. The second trimester is also when many moms-to-be have more energy than they did in their first trimester, and more stamina than they will later on. Don't worry if your trip is planned for a time other than your second trimester -- it's not a rule that you have to travel then. Just be aware that if you wait too long, you might not feel like going anywhere. (Hello, nesting instinct!)
