    Hi Binz85,

    Congrates on your pregnancy..I did travel to India for delivery during my 6th month..There is no problem in travelling alone..Just keep few points in mind
    1)Drink lots of water(I made sure to drink water after every 30 mins)
    2)Walk in between to avoid swelling in legs
    3)Keep some snacks handy
    4)Doctor reports ,medicines in handbag
    5)Dress comfortably(I found loose cotton salwar was comfortable)
    6)Keep your luggage as minimum as possible(I use stroller bag as cabin bag)

    Also in fight air hostess will help you for everything.So dont worry..
    Have a safe journey

    Good luck,
    Saraswati

    Hi,

    Don't worry. As one of our friend mentioned do follow few basic care, thats enough.

    I knew one of my friend who travelled at 5thmonth and my cosister also travelled same 5th month ending and they both delivered their baby safely.

    Happy journey and safe delivery...

    I travelled in my 29th week alone from US to india. Just had jetlag for 3 days and a bit of swelling at ankle for 1st 2 days.

    I had kept etc sandals , if in case I get swelling & for frequent restroom visits during 14 hr long flight. I had 1 Cabin trolley bag.

    Even though I had packed few snacks for travel, I ran out of it , and was feeling more hungry. So better carry etc snacks.
