My husband and I are trying for our first baby (I have Hashimoto's) and I've just been asked to travel for work later in the year (Australia to UK & Europe). While we're not pregnant yet, I'm hoping that I will be by the time the trip comes around. The problem is I have to commit to the work trip soon and I've previously been warned that it is too risky to fly long haul flights early in the pregnancy because we have a higher than normal risk of miscarriage (I was also told it's not a good idea because our medication schedule is often changed/delayed because of the time difference and that affects the baby). Has anyone done any long haul flights in the early stages of pregnancy? Have you had any problems?
Ideally I would like to ask an obstetrician, but since I’m not pregnant I don’t have access to one! I also don't see an Endo regularly, but he was the one that told me I need to be extremely careful in the first few months of pregnancy!
