Is it safe to travel by airplane in 30 weeks pregnancy ?

Hello. I am scheduled to fly in just week when I will be 30 weeks pregnant . I am absolutely terrified if flying as it is; but I need to know if it is safe. The first flight is 2h and the second only an hour. Also, what can I do about the terrible acne I have developed during my pregnancy?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Yes you can safely fly at 30 weeks of pregnancy. Just be careful not to take a window seat as you are more prone to dizziness during take-off.Regarding the acne these do develop in pregnancy more commonly due to the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. They will subside after delivery.
