Travel Safe
Hi Doc,
Hubby and I are ttc. We have booked a cruise holiday in Dec, and then 10 days in UK in Feb. If i should fall pregnant now, would it be safe for me to be on a cruise or a long distance flight?
When is it dangerous to fly/cruise during pregnancy?
Thanks
CE;-)

The danger of flying is that there is an increased risk of clots, as you are sitting down for so long.
Other than not being close to medical care, a cruise ship should not be a problem.
