Question: does flying (max. length of flight 4.5 hours) have a detrimental effect during the very early stages of suspected pre-elampsia (ie iimmediately after initial detection of urine protein or blood pressure increase)?
I am in 25 weeks pregnant and being monitored (daily protein analysis, bi-weekly blood pressure checks) following development of pre-eclampsia and later HELLP durings weeks 30-33 in my first pregnancy. I have a holiday involving a flight booked for week 26. If any changes to daily checks are noted I can fly home the same day - will this exacerbate any problem?
