welcome to HealthcareMagic
Being a journey slightly uncomfortable since it is done mostly sitting and due to the jerks of bad roads it is very necessary to avoid travel by bus.The jerks can lead to abortion that is the fear why all Gynaecologist advise that it is better to avoid travel by any means during first 3 months of pregnancy but if you have to do it you should preferable travel by railway which is the better form of travel for pregnant females.Still if it is necessary please consult your Gynaec before doing so.
