How do you feel?

First and foremost ask yourself, how you feel. Whether you would feel comfortable travelling, in a foreign country and how much you are able to do according to the size of your belly, any pains and other things. Second, consult this with your doctor. If you have pregnancy with no issues, medication or hospital visits, you should be good to go.


When is it late to go?

I have travelled by car to Italy when i was 34 weeks (mid 8months) pregnant and i was fine, BUT my belly was small, i did not drive, i took it very easy and on the negative side, insurance companies do not insure you this far in your pregnancy, so if there was anything that would happen or the labor would start early, i would have to pay for it all (and oh boy that would be a lot).

Airlines also have limitations for boarding pregnant women, for example Emirates takes up to 29 weeks on the other hand Lufthansa up to 36weeks without a medical letter. So always check before you book the flight.
