I flew at 23 weeks. I found that just fine. I reckon that later on it might get a bit uncomfy. No one questioned my pregnant tummy, though I had a doctor's letter just in case. I took asprin as advised by my midwife (75mg) and wore support stockings, though they drove me crazy as they kept falling down.

I got pregnant just after the medicals and x-rays (which we front loaded).

However, it took an AGE for our Visas to come through, so much so that our Agent ended up emailing the Case Officer and asking if things could be speeded up so I could fly at 28 weeks pregnant (high risk). We thought we had planned it all carefully and in good time, but we didn't allow for our POlice Checks getting lost

Our Agent warned us that this in itself (emailing Case Officer) could be risky as sometimes DIMIA don't like you to come over to Oz and immediately use their health system, they prefer to have the baby at home using the NHS. We were ok in the end (and we had private insurance anyway), but he did know of a case where the Visa was delayed by DIMIA due to pregnancy.

Hope this helps (and makes sense)

I ended up in hospital in Singapore with something nasty but it was my illness not the baby's, so I was insured (Austravel - fab).

so had you had your meds and THEN fell pregnant. i would like to front load meds - what do you think??

Yes it was all carefully planned - was pregnant about a week after x-rays. I know very lucky indeed. However, we had thought we might not come out to Oz until September this year so would have waited to have another UK baby. In the end we wanted to come out sooner, but it was touch and go )not helped by the police checks being lost over Christmas and DIMIA not mentioning it. It cost us about 6 weeks. Not much except when you have to fly by a certain date.

Our Agent was Peter Elliott at Wessex Migration 01202 738999. Give him a call and mention our name and situation. I'm sure he'd be happy to advise (but he's very busy!)
