Hi Sutha,

In my opinion, it is not safe for you to travel by air at this point, especially if your current pregnancy is a precious pregnancy.

I am sorry but there are chances that you may have a preterm labour and that the cervical stitch may gape.

I hope this helps you to take a wise decision.

Happy pregnancy and safe delivery.
