Hi ladies - for those who have flown while pregnant, I could use some advice. We're planning a 3 week trip overseas when I'll be between 27-30 weeks pregnant. An acquaintance recommended I get compression socks for the flight. What do you think? Any recommendations on brands? Also, my FIL recommended we think about paying a bit extra for economy plus seats so there is a bit more room. Do you think this is worth it? I'm only 5'2" so, generally regular economy is fine, but I'm really not sure how big my belly is going to be at that time. This is my first, and I'm barely showing at 15 weeks, and still in my regular pants (just not zipped and using the belly band).
Would love your thoughts on tips for the flight (it's ~12 hours long) and any tips for the trip itself. We'll be staying with family with the exception of a 3-day layover in Istanbul on our way home.
We did already check with the Dr. and he doesn't think there are any limitations to travel, and the airline only requires a note, so there shouldn't be any boarding issues.
