This has been a question to me for quite some time now.
This is what i found :
A common question is how safe is it to travel by air during the first and last trimester of your pregnancy.
Well the good news is that there is no real danger to you or your developing baby if you choose to travel by commercial airliner during your pregnancy up to about 35 weeks or, unless you have certain complications such as severe anemia, sickle cell disease, clotting disorders and placental insufficiency, as these can place even more risk on you and your baby. (hmm.. that means i'm able to fly until mid-April this year)
One of the more common concerns is what effect the air pressure will have on your baby, however there is no need for any concern - as the cabin of the air plane is pressurized to a safe level, and your body easily adjusts to the changes.
Another common concern is that you will in some way be exposed to electromagnetic radiation from the sun at high altitudes, especially since the effects of being exposed to radiation during pregnancy are well understood. (oooh, that sounds scary!)
It is true that at higher altitudes there is an increase of exposure, but this level is not in dangerous for the average pregnant women who may be flying. If you are concerned about the possible exposure to high radiation levels, then please consult with your health care provider.
Although there is no immediate danger to woman who fly in the early stages of pregnancy, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that the safest time to fly while pregnant is between weeks 18 and 24. This is because that this is generally the time when there is less chance of a miscarriage, and before any chances of premature labor.
Now, i know..
you must be wondering where'll i go?
Since i'm in a project right now, dealing with our simultanenous engineering partner from Isuzu, everything will liase with Isuzu Japan. All the production trial and pdi must be done at Japan. but initially, i'll be auditing a few material suppliers at Osaka. but that still depends on our bosses approval.
the good thing is that now i dont have to pump for Lissa, and Lissa can definitely be left without me.. :)
And before the second baby comes, I still have my "freedom", right? after all, first thing, need to get approval from the big boss aka mr hubby. boleh kan, yang? it wouldnt be long.. for few days only. Let's see how he'll be left alone with Lissa :) hihihi
