In brief: Flying in pregnancy

Generally, commercial air travel during pregnancy is considered safe for women who have healthy pregnancies.
The best time to fly might be in the middle of your pregnancy — about weeks 14 to 28. This is when you're likely to feel your best, and the risks of miscarriage and premature labor are the lowest. For more see: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/air-travel-during-pregnancy/an00398.

In brief: Usually, yes

Talk to your obstetrician.
In general, if there are no complications with the pregnancy, you should be able to continue all your normal activities--work, moderate exercise, travel, whatever. However, you should be careful travelling to other continents in terms of vaccinations, contagious diseases, diarrheal illness, etc.
