There are many factors affecting the state of travel during your pregnancy:
- Your pregnancy phase at the time of travel’s scheduled
- Whether there are any complications during pregnancy
- The way it travels, such as cars, trains or aircraft
- The distance travel will take you away from your home
- Travel insurance – make sure you have insurance for your planned trip
Pregnancy Phase: Travel problems
Travel during the first or second quarter period is generally considered safe, but it can be more tiring than usual.
Travel during the first trimester of pregnancy can present difficulties, especially if you feel pregnancy nausea or fatigue. And the risk of bleeding and child dropping is higher during these months.
The second quarter of your pregnancy is the period when you will feel the best and have the most energy. This is the perfect time for travel. In fact, holiday or having a ‘pre-baby honeymoon’ during this period with your partner is an ideal opportunity to have fun together before the baby arrives!
Travel during the third trimeride can be uncomfortable and is riskier because it can start giving birth miles away from your own paramedics and hospitals.
Some airlines may ask the doctor for a permit in the final weeks of pregnancy. Conditions depend on flight distance (domestic or international) and airlines you fly to. This letter should usually be given within 72 hours of the flight.
The most comfortable way to travel during pregnancy is probably by car. Whether you drive the car or sit in the passenger seat, don’t forget to stretch your legs every hour or two —this will provide good blood circulation. Don’t forget to wear your seat belt at all times. Place the lower part of the seat belt on the lower part of your abdomen and the shoulder strap between your breasts.
In the first two quarters, pay attention to the following:
Do your schedule in advance so you don’t rush and have enough time between connecting flights. Request a hallway seat so you can have a little more space and easily go to the toilet when you need it. Stand up every hour and walk down the hall so that the blood circulation on your legs will move. As you sit, stretch your feet to your face and draw round ingenues with your feet. Support underwear or flight socks also increase the stimulation in your legs when you have to sit for a long time. Often for water or juice to avoid loss of water.
In the first two quarters, cruises can be very good, especially if you’re on a big cruise ship. Many cruise ships have medical staff to help you when you need them. If you are sensitive to action, you may want to take medication to prevent sea retention; Ask your health care professional about the medications that you are eligible to take during pregnancy. You can also wear anti-prescription acupuncture wristbands sold in pharmacies.
If you want to travel away from home, make sure you have good medical care resources at your destination. Take your pregnancy records with you, including tests you’ve done, medications you’ve taken, your blood type and other information that might be useful while you’re away from home.
If you have to travel out of the country, it is very important that you make copies even though your drug prescriptions are lost. When traveling to countries where some vaccines are required, make sure your vaccines are complete.
Don’t do much in a day or two, especially in a warm climate or a high place after your arrival at your destination, so it will be time for your body to get used to these changes.
After planning in advance and taking some wise precautions, travel during pregnancy will be safe and enjoyable. Good trip!
