welcome to healthcare magic forum
you can travel by train if you have no other pregnancy related problem like high blood pressure ,swelling ,anemia ,pain etc
but you must take advise from your gynecologist
personally i advise not to go and stay here as change in environment might affect you
and you have to change the doctor there .
better to explain your elders.
i hope i have answered your question

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, ideally during first n last trimester of pregnancy travelling should be avoided as there is high chance of mishappening, mid trimester is best for travelling. if you do not hany pregnncy related complication then you should travell via train or plain but dont use by road. now you have 27wk of pregnancy so you should go now not wait for 31st wk of pregnancy.
