Dear Saritadhiman,first of all congratulations on being pregnant.Ideally one should see a doctor as soon as pregnant because you need to take some vitamins like folic acid in first 3 months to avoid risk of birth defect in baby.It is always advisable that before you plan your travel you should have primary examination done by gynecologist.Your doctor may ask some investigations like ultrasound to see that everything is doing fine.then you are welcome to India.
