Hi Practo User,
As such pregnancy is not a contradiction to flight travel( specially short flights) but one has to rule out  any other associated medical problem, especially DVT or any other thrombophilias.
Any medication in advance will depend on the area you are travelling to,  endemic disease of that area
Health Tips
It would be better if you avoid it in 1st trimester , ie, travel after 13 wks of gestation.
