Thanks for your query,
Travelling should be ideally avoided during pregnancy especially in first trimester and toward late third trimester.
However if it is really necessary , then travelling by train is better than other routes.
So take care and best of luck..
Hope it helps you..

It is safe to travel in the second trimestor of pregnancy. But it is difficult to predict your condition during last trimester.
