Welcome to to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the safest time for pregnancy travel is during the second trimester (18 through 24 weeks) when you are usually feeling your best and are in the least danger of experiencing a miscarriage or premature labor.Stay well hydrated during the journey.
