Travel Ideas for Pregnant Women | My Trips During Pregnancy

In this blog post, I wanna provide some travel ideas for pregnant women.


One of the first thoughts a pregnant travel junkie might have is - can I travel during pregnancy? While the first checks at the doctor will give the answer to that, and if everything seems to be okay with the pregnancy, the second thought might be - what travel destinations are suitable for a pregnant woman? 


I'll tell you how I felt during the pregnancy from month to month and where did I travel to with my growing belly :)

1# Switzerland | 1 - 9 Months Pregnant | 1-3-Hour Car Drives

First of all, we took many car drives within Switzerland. Each drive was different in terms of length, but the longest was about 3 hours. I had no problems during the drives. 


In the first 3 months of my pregnancy, Jerry and I did a lot of stand up paddling by visiting different lakes around the country. I was a bit more tired than I would be without that growing baby in my belly and I didn't carry those heavy SUP boards around my myself, but everything else was normal.


While 5 and 6 months pregnant, we did some hiking (1 to 2.5 hour hikes) in Switzerland - autumn is a great period to do so. I tried to walk slowly and within my strengths. I took more breaks than usual but I'm happy I managed it to the top :) 


8 months pregnant, we did some longer walks (1 to 2.5 hours) - first I thought it will be too much, but it turned out to be a great stretch for my body. If you feel great at this stage of pregnancy, make sure to allow yourself to do the activities you'd like to do!

2# Ireland | 1.5 Months Pregnant | 2.5-Hour Flight

Travelling to Ireland involved my first flight during pregnancy. I must confess, that was the first and it turned out also the only time I was a bit nervous about flying during this special time. Travelling & flying within the first trimester can be tricky due to sickness, dizziness and especially the risk of miscarriage. However, my inner voice told me to relax and to take the flight. Luckily, everything went well. 


My pregnancy didn't limit any of my days in Ireland. The only thing was, I couldn't drink any of the Irish beers :)) I must say, overall, it was a great girls trip and I would do it once again if I had the choice. There was only one strange situation on the last day. While checking out of the hotel, I suddenly experienced my first morning sickness. I had to stop my check-out process and run to the bathroom :) Apart from that, everything was perfect and I was glad to attend this lovely girls trip!

3# Slovenia | 2 Months Pregnant | 8-Hour Car Drive

In August, we drove to Slovenia to visit our families, friends and for a cooperation with a local Slovenian tourism board. It was approx. a 8-hour car drive, which ended up perfectly, without any problems. Of course, we did a few more stops along the road than usual to stretch my pregnant legs but it was not a big deal. While in Slovenia, we enjoyed some warm summer days in our home town Kranj.

4# Germany | 3 Months Pregnant | 1.5-Hour Flight

Middle of August, my brother and I finally did a trip together - the destinations we decided to check out together were Hamburg and Bremen. I arrived by plane to Hamburg. Also this time, no complications during the flight. I drunk a lot of water, asked what's inside that sandwich (be careful with cheese, ham and fish during pregnancy!) and simply enjoyed the flight. When arrived, I took a taxi to the hotel - normally I try to use buses or trains to the city center but within the first trimester of pregnancy, it's common to be more tired than usual, so I chose the easier and quicker way :) The exploration around the country was normal, we could see and do a lot. Germany makes it a great country for travelling while being pregnant.

5# Austria | 3 Months Pregnant | 1.5-Hour Flight

August was quite busy with flying for a pregnant woman :) My company sent me to Vienna with Swiss Airlines for a short business trip. Luckily, I didn't have any unpleasant situations with sickness and vomiting. All went well.

6# Oman | 3.5 Months Pregnant | 8-Hour Flight

Well, Oman was quite a last minute decision. We actually had a flight booked for Indonesia (Sumatra), but my doctor didn't like the idea due to the possible Zika virus and the island's remoteness. So, we needed an alternative and ended up with booking Oman! The outbound flight with Emirates was very comfortable and the staff was very friendly. A bit more unpleasant was the return flight with Swiss Airlines - we waited quite some time to get some food, there was an order chaos with our vegetarian food and the air in the plane was somehow cold. Nevermind, could be worse. I was happy not facing any situations with sickness on the plane. 


The trip around Oman was feasible for me as a pregnant woman. We did a normal 12-day road trip, visiting the main touristc destinations within the country. However, this time we took it a bit easier with hiking and stressing from one place to another. I was glad, I went on this trip. Nevertheless, there were some challenges from day 3 to let's say, day 8 during this trip. Suddenly, I had to deal with vomiting again - it appeared during driving, before breakfast, after lunch etc. Sometimes 3 times per day. At that time, the temperature in Oman was very high, it also reached 45 C degrees, so the combination of the heat and vomiting was not perfect, but still managable! I drunk a lot of water and tried to enjoy the beautiful landscape. I really didn't put much attention to the sickness. And hey, it disappeared after a few days and all was good!

7# Slovenia | 6.5 Months Pregnant | 1-Hour Flight

I was 6.5 months pregnant, when we took a plane to Slovenia (Swiss Airlines). It was quite a small plane and all seats were taken. A bit uncomfortable for a pregnant woman, but luckily the flight lasted only an hour. Also, as a precaution, I wore the compression socks during the flight. I also asked for an additional glass of water. The stay in Slovenia was short but I was able to drive around and visit my friends. Apart from that, the goal was to see our families again.

8# Lanzarote, The Canary Island | 7.5 Months Pregnant | 4-Hour Flight

One of the last travel destinations Jerry and I flew to, was the lovely Canary Island called Lanzarote. I was already 7.5 months pregnant, so I brought a medical certificate with me in case the flying company (in this case Edelweiss) would ask for one (btw. they didn't). When we booked the trip, I said to Jerry: "This will be a vacation for retired people". I thought, at this stage of pregnancy, I'm not gonna be able to travel much around the island, so the plan was to take it easy. However, it came differently. My energy levels were great. We managed to explore many corners of the island by driving around and walking some distances along the coast. I really enjoyed it.

As you see, I flew 6 times during my pregnancy and drove one time for a bit longer - approx. 8 hours. Luckily, I didn't have any problems! But every woman and every pregnancy might be different - please consult with your doctor first and listen to your body.


So, that was my outline about my trips during pregnancy. Hopefully you will get some ideas where to go in case you just found out that you're pregnant and you still wanna go on the road. Good luck!

    I want to say a big thanks to Dr. Okosisi for helping me to win the lottery. I won ($1,000,000.00)

    My heart was filled with Joy and happiness when I won the lottery. All thanks goes to Dr Okosisi for his good work he did for me that made me win the lottery. It has been hard for me to earn a living over the years of hard labor and suffering. I always pray to God to help me find a way to hit the lottery, because that was all I put my hope on. I always play the lottery daily, buy different lottery tickets, pay for online tips and others, but all was in vain, no good result, until one day I found this great man Dr Okosisi. On the internet, he is a magic voodoo Doctor, who helps to cast the lottery spell, as was described in the article. I contacted him too because I want to hit the lottery. Dr. Okosis helped me to cast the spell, and behold I won ONE MILLION DOLLARS. Truly you are the best and your spell is genuine and costs no harm. I got my bills paid and my debt cleared. I am making this known to every one of you who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery with a better price, this is the real contact we all have been searching for. Contact him now. WhatsApp number: +1 (901) 235-9551 Email:

    How does it makes you feel? IT HURTS TO KNOW YOU ARE UNABLE TO CONCEIVE?. There is a solution. My name is Zoe Bower and I am from Tallahassee, Florida, USA. I was not able to conceive for over 4 years of my marriage but i did solve my problem. I met a testimony online about a spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and I contacted him to help me. He did something for me and I still don't know what it is up till now but within 3 days after he said he has done the work, I went for a test and the results showed I was fertile and after sleeping with my husband, I became pregnant. I am writing this because I promised Doctor Odunga I will publish his name once I get my desires. I am happy with the work of this man for me and if you need help, I think you should be happy you read my testimony because you have found help to your problem. His email is

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    I highly recommend HACK MAVENS to all my friends and to my family. They did an incredible job fixing my credit score from as low as 430 to 785 and deleted all negative items. They also helped a friend of mine whom I referred to them get into her cheating husband's phone and social media accounts. It's important to know they also specialize in recovering lost crypto assets. They are the best out there. Do not hesitate to contact them on;
