    Sure are!
    I think up until 36weeks you are fine.
    Not sure of the exact time that you have to stop flying.

    Thanks Blue!

    As its only a 45 min flight I thought it would be AOK!

    Thanks!

    You should be fine! Just remember the usual flying advice to drink water and stretch your legs often.

    I flew back from Europe when I was 4 weeks pregnant (did not know it at the time, couldn't test till I got home!) and I was fine.

    I flew to Japan last year at 12 weeks pregnant.....totally fine. A short trip to Tassie should be AOK - enjoy it !!

    Yep you will be fine, there is no prob with flying whilst you are pregnant. I live in a remote town that does not deliver babies....so I had to fly out at 36wks, no probs at all.

    I sure hope so! Cause I'm flying to Melbourne tomorrow at 31 weeks :-)

    You should be fine on such a short flight, its generally only the really long flights that you have more potential issues

    Hey kafer girl, firstly congrats, I read your other post !! Like everyone else said its fine to fly untill about a month before your due date but be ready for m/s or plane sick. I have a friend that was sick on a flight when she was pg and normaly she doesnt get plane sick..
    Also wanted to reply cause I live in Tassie and just wanted to say hi and have a great trip..

    Just got back from a 3 day weekend in Adelaide myself- OK to fly- some airlines like you to have a medical certificate but i flew Quantas and they were ok with it and i didnt need a med certificate...

    Only thing was the pressure up there made me have bad cramps but i was told it was normal. also felt quite queezy when we landed but other then that i was fine...

    Your not as far as i was ao i'd say you should have no probs just relax and enjoy the flight... good luck
