Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Your doctor has advised right. Bumpy long journeys can cause miscarriage. It is better to avoid such journeys. You should avoid much movement. Get your ultrasound evaluation of your pregnancy before travel and get it read by your Doctor as well. If there is no contraindication, you may go on the journey.
