Pregnancy travel tip #4: Stay comfy
Pregnancy travel is best done during your second trimester, says Gilmore: Morning sickness from your first trimester has subsided and you have more energy than during the exhausting third trimester. No matter when you decide to travel, don’t push it: The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends limiting pregnancy travel time to five hours, max. En route, be sure to plan in breaks (if you’re driving) or snag an aisle seat (if you’re flying) so you can stretch your legs occasionally. If possible, you might want to situate yourself near a bathroom, too.
