I flew transatlantic at 6weeks and back at 7 weeks......no problem at all. Your Doc will obviously let you know if for any specific reason or risk you personally shouldn't fly but generally this should be totally safe for you. I flew again at 27 weeks on hols to France. You just have to watch airline and insurance rules later in pregnancy Hope you get all clear for doc and get to go and visit your brother and hope he recovers well. HTH
