I dont know if this is already shared in this thread..
All our local airlines except for PAL let pregnant women 33 weeks and below travel, pero pag 34 weeks ka na and up di na pwede.. Ang PAL naman hanggang 35 weeks, yun sabi sakin sa cebu pac.. I recently went to laoag, 31 weeks ako, and dko alam yung ganung rule, buti umabot pako..

^Payag naman PAL pero may kasama pang ibang waiver na whatever happens, hinde sila liable. Kay alang ang nagiging problem naman, mostly OBs would not want to sign the waiver kase license nila at stake.

I flew with PAL when I went to the US, I was around 6 months pregnant that time. I asked them kung pano nga pag more than 35 weeks na.
Whatever I want, I get. If I can't, I don't stop TRYING.

Is it required to submit the EMIS in PAL or ok na kahit medical certificate lang?

^ I called PAL, EMIS lang talaga tapos diba may portion to be filled up by the OB sa part 2 if beyond 6 months na. Basta andun yung details sa website and sa pdf file. Ako lilipad with PAL this December and 4 months pa lang, so first portion lang ng EMIS ang pipirmahan.

Hello mga sis, I'll be flying to MLA from SG on my 21.5 weeks. Need ko pa ba ng medical certitificate? Or EMIS only will do?

Thanks! :)

Nagbackread ako kasi im interested to know whether possible magtravel to and from US/Manila during the first trimester.  Mostly nabasa ko at least nasa 2nd trimester na or early pregnancy pero shorter distances lang.  Plan namin to have 2nd baby this year but there's a chance also na magUS kami. What if matapat sa 1st trimester and trip to US. Ang haba na ng flight at the same time, baka unsafe to tour around US. (Go to Grand Canyon, walk along the Las Vegas strip, shop at the outlet stores, go to Hollywood....) Dami kong gustong gawin sa trip na baka hindi magawa if im preggy.   Hindi pako preggy mga Sis ha. I just want to be prepared and manage my travel expectations when the time comes.:)

^EMIS lang ako non with matching tingin ng doctor sa airport, 8 weeks din ako nagtravel to Davao lang naman. Pero medyo OA yung sa Airphil e, barely obvious pa nga pagkabuntis ko minention ko lang pero ayun kelangan ko makipagmeet pa sa doctor nila dun at mainterview hehe

nung 20 weeks ako to Hong Kong naman di naman OA, ni hindi pa nga ako tinanong kung preggers or what kahit medyo obvious si baby. Ako na mismo nagabot ng EMIS na finill-up ko. Photocopy lang ginawa nila tas yung isa ibibigay sa FA bago pumasok sa plane. 6 copies ng EMIS ang ginamit ko noon

^Sis where in Japan are you going? I think Tokyo is safe -- pero to be on the safe side, habang pregnant, iniwasan namin ang Japan sa travels namin. Be careful with the food too. :) Kahit sa Shanghai when I traveled when I was 5 weeks preggy my doctor said No streetfood. :)

21 weeks nagtravel ako HK to Pinas (return) then 22 weeks HK to SG (return) naman...they didn't ask me for any documents pero ready ako with my certificate of pregnancy. Pag 7 months preggy saka daw hinihingan ng fit to travel and pag 8 months preggy saka daw hihingan ng fit to travel plus their airline doctor will check you too. Based on my friend who travelled nung 30 weeks siya from SG to Pinas.

I also travelled when I was about 8 weeks pregnant... Australia to Philippines (return shempre) and then Manila to Kalibo.

Walang hiningi sakin na kung ano on the international flight pero dun sa domestic flight, pinacheck ako sa doctor ba yun sa airport I cant remember and binigyan ng clearance.

Pero nagdala rin ako ng letter from my OB just in case

Priceless

I was traveling the whole time during my pregnancy, until 37th week. Dala dala ko ang letter ng OB everytime I travelled. For both short, medium and long haul flights. I also went to the US and toured Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, up to Seattle pa nga, at road trip pa ito, during the start of my 2nd trimester. Wala namang nag ask sa akin ng OB certificate until the last two flights ko, and only because I was really big na! On my 37th week my last trip was HK (about 3 hours each way), and my mum and I were able to cover all our usual shopping and dining haunts.

Wala namang problem, usual ingat lang and the only thing that I avoided were the rides at the theme parks.  For business trips, I had to carry a smaller bag, syempre dahil wala akong taga tulong mag buhat. Other than that, I carried on as usual.

Travelled during my 2nd tri. US trip for 2.5weeks. I had clearance from my OB, just in case. But since I'm kinda chubby, di pa ganun kahalata tummy ko upon leaving Manila kaya di ako hinanapan ng airline. Towards the end of our trip, halata na tyan ko. Hehe..

My OB made me baon of course my vitamins and some other meds - Duphaston in case nag-cramps or nag-spot ako (thank God I didn't have to use them); and half a tablet of *I-forget-the-name-now* (sorry..) to take during long flights/land trips (more than 3hrs). So I took the half-tablet med before the Narita-JFK flight, both ways of our Las Vegas-Arizona roadtrip (Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon South Rim), and again sa LA-Narita flight. Precaution lang naman daw sabi ni OB. The Manila-Narita-Manila flights, as well as US domestic flights, I didn't take the med na. OB also reminded to keep myself hydrated all the time, especially during flights. And to keep moving during the long-haul flights to keep blood circulating especially in my legs. :)

Trip went well. Me konting scares lang. Like it snowed while we were in NY. And from the ferry station (from Liberty Island) to the main road, we had to walk an icy path. Madami nadudulas and we were really worried na either madulas ako or masagi/madamay sa mga nadudulas. Kaya kapit na kapit ako kay hubby nun. Buti his shoes has more traction, mas stable ang footing nya. Super-bagal nga lang namin maglakad pero better safe than sorry.. other than that, medyo alalay lang din not to tire myself too much. And iwas-iwas sa sobrang smoke sa mga casinos in Las Vegas. Mas mabagal lang ako mag-walk compared to our previous trips na walkathons talaga, haha!

Good luck and enjoy your trips, sisses. Take care! :)
