Hello, Since you are not having complications in pregnancy, you can travel. Make sure you stay hydrated, avoid roadside food and if you have travelling sickness, take anti-vomiting medications.

Hi. Since you have an uncomplicated pregnancy, you can travel. However, take a few precautions. 1. Stay hydrated 2. Take a walk every 2 hours. It will prevent blood clot formation in your legs (women r more prone to this during pregnancy) & swelling. 3. Keep your regular medications and extra for vomiting, acidity 5. In case you experience any problem, don't hesitate in informing railway staff & getting help.
