Hi I am due to go away next week and just wondering has anyone else flown at this stage, its only to Europe so not long haul, it just occured to me that the airline might not allow me, anyone any experience of this??

You're generally fine to fly up to about 30 weeks but it's always best to just check with your gp first. As long as you have no health issues then there shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for that, guess I am just afraid that the staff may think I am further along than I actually am and I have no proof to say that I am not, might give the gp a ring and see what she says..

The Aer Lingus website has a letter you can print off and get your gp to fill in to bring with you, just with general info and their signature that you're ok to fly.
