Brief Answer:
Can travel.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.

Road travel can be done in early pregnancy, provided the roads are not bumpy and the journey is smooth.

Travelling at high speed should be avoided.

If the above criteria is met, then you can travel by road at this Gestational age.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Take care.
