Luckily, offers up some great tips for travel while pregnant. First of all, keep in mind that as long as you have no serious pregnancy complications, it is usually completely safe to travel during your pregnancy. Most women tend to travel most during their second trimester, when they are free from morning sickness but not yet to the point of pregnancy where they are miserable. 

If you are traveling by plane, remember that most airlines allow travel up until the eighth month of pregnancy, and after that time permission from your health care provider might be required. Basically they don't want you to deliver while en route to your destination, on their plane! Cruises, while also considered safe, should be avoided in the last few months of pregnancy, and could potentially make any morning sickness you may have worse during your first trimester. 

If you have any questions at all about traveling while pregnant, ask your doctor so that you can feel reassured and have no worries while traveling, whether you are going near or far from home.
