Response to Flying during first trimester? (BFP mentioned)
I flew during my 1st and 2nd trimesters and my RE and OB were concerned that (1) I walked around during the flight or wore compression stockings to avoid any blood clots and (2)that I was going to a metropolitan area where there would be decent health care if I had any problems. You are right that there is very little that can be done to avoid a m/c at that stage, but you would still want to know where to go or who to see if you had any issues. My OB also checked my cervix before flights just to be cautious as well.
