Is it safe to travel in first trimester?



Just checked using pregnancy test kit and its positive !. Its been 4 weeks since my last periods. Doctor is taking appointment only after 8 weeks and i need an advise. Actually I’ve plans to travel next week and its a long international flight of 20 hours. and then i plan to return after 8 weeks (would be total 13 weeks since last periods). Its an urgent travel and I feel normal with no nausea or anything significant till now other than little cramps or headache. Is it safe to travel. please advise.


I was just recently told by a woman who lost her baby that it was because she flew over seas. Everything was going fine until she flew. She told me it’s not safe to fly especially during the first trimester.
