Thank you for clarifying. What about train and flight? Also i do not have morning sickness just yet and hence am worried if it means that i have more chances to miscarry.

Brief Answer:
No morning sickness does not suggest a miscarriage.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
You can also travel by train and air if you do not have any nausea. The degree of nausea varies from one person to another. It is not suggestive of a miscarriage. You can get an ultrasound scan done before the travel to be sure that the heart beat and everything else is alright.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
