Flying during first trimester? (BFP mentioned)

I'm wondering what you ladies think about flying during or maybe a few days after the first trimester. I know most doctors will tell you it's fine, but I have several acquaintances who miscarried during the first trimester fairly shortly after a flight. Could be completely unrelated, but I know we all want to be cautious.

I am currently a little more than 8 weeks (YAY!), but they have not been without issues: I had retroplacental bleeding around 5 weeks, and I'm on PIO shots and inserts because my P4 levels were dropping.

I'm sure I'm just being overly cautious and/or paranoid, but I thought I'd see if others had experience with this issue.
