Flying While Expecting!
So today was the first time I flew around the country while pregnant! (insert claps, fist pumps and a dance!) haha I wasn't worried at all.. I am right about 20 weeks along, I checked with my doc - she said it was fine and I took proper steps to be prepared!
1 I didn't have time to research what that crazy machine they make you step into to scan your body could give off... but I opted to ask the TSA agents if I could not walk through it and they were so sweet - I had a simple pat down by a nice gal instead!
2 - I wore COMFY clothes! I wore leggings, a lightweight tee, jersey cardigan thingie, a scarf and flip flops.. surprisingly, I still got cold!
3 - On the plane I asked for the blanket right away to stay cozy and this was so much needed.. then I took it on our next flight!
4 I drank plenty of water and ate when we had the chance - our flight was VERY early.. like Mr. Sun was not up.. so we did good!
I must admit I did get a little bit more uncomfortable than normal and here is why I think I did... the seats and this little bump do not mesh the best! Now that I have popped a little.. sitting STRAIGHT upright just isn't as fun as it used to.. like it ever was? ha! I tried to make do and move around, get comfy, use my tall husband to lean against.. and I made it!
Tell me ladies.. did any of you fly while expecting? Experience any hiccups? Any tips or advice to share? ;)
