H and I have just booked to go to menorca in the beginning of July. By then I'll be 24 weeks. We've made sure were close by to the towns so we can walk in easily and flight is only 2 hours so hopefully bearable.

Check you don't end up sitting in a row where the seats don't recline (learnt that the hard way when I was pregnant last time), think it was the row near the emergency exit!

I'm tempted to book seats with extra legroom but they want an extra £80 for the pleasure!!

I travelled back home to Canada in 2nd tri, was totally fine. And on one leg we were even stuck in the middle seats of the middle row! How annoying. I think you should be fine, have an amazing time!!

For a 2 hr flight you should be fine. I went to Iceland at 10 weeks (2.5hr flight) and the Maldives at 21 weeks (3 flights, 4.5hrs, 6.5hrs and 40mins) and had no problems other than on the 6.5hr Return flight being very uncomfortable and the staff not clearing my tray so I could get up. I would be quite happy with flying now as well, if we had any more trips planned.

I went to Spain last weekend at 31 weeks - was all fine. I did however need a doctors letter, I would take all your notes and a copy of your MatB1 too. You may find the airline won't allow you extra legroom seats if you are pregnant - depends on their criteria. Drink plenty of water, get up and move around and you will be fine. I've sat still for longer periods of time at my desk!!
