pregnancy and travel
I have just found out I am pregnant while visiting my family here in SA and I am due to return overseas in 2 weeks time.
My question is: should I visit a gynae for a check up before I leave? and should two long flights be still all right at this early stage?
I am in good health and used to travelling, so I would rather go to someone where I live and who I continue to see in the months to come.
I would appreciate your opinion.
Thank you!

Take care to drink lots of fluids and move around a lot on the flight and you should be okay.
