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.

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.
