I'm pregnant and I'm planing to travel to maldives island I will be 28 weeks of pregnancy by plane and also fast boat,, I want to know is it risky ??

No: Commercial air and boat travel during pregnancy is considered safe for women who have healthy pregnancies. Still, it's best to check with your Ob. If your pregnancy is considered high risk or you're at risk of preterm labor, your Ob might restrict travel. 28 weeks is a time when the risk of pre-term labor is low, so you are probably safe. Sounds like a wonderful trip! Have a great time! ...Read more

Same as before: Most likely the symptoms will be the same as previous pregnancies: breast tenderness, nausea, fatigue. There is concern though that after a tubal ligation the pregnancy could be an ectopic pregnancy (in the tube).

This is even more likely if you are also having perimenopausal symptoms like hot flashes.
