Dear thanks for the query.Traveling during second trimester is permitted if there are not other complications.As you are in second trimester and if you do not have other issues you can travel.But by and large during pregnancy unnecessary travel have to be avoided.If must you can.For more information please ask your doctor.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
Travelling long distance is to be avoided during first trimester & the doctors (gynaecologists)also advise that if the travel is necessary then it should be done preferably by a train.The best person you can ask about it is your Gynaec as she knows your case better & if she advises you can travel.
Take care.
