Don't overdo rest—do need to stay active. But be sure to take frequent breaks in your travel time. Make sure good medical care is available wherever you travel, and that climate, food, or altitude will not become a problem for you.
If you drive, make sure you wear your seat belt.
Make sure to consult your doctor before traveling, even during your first and second trimesters. You should take his advice, and also take general precautions.
Don't travel if you are having problems, like bleeding or cramping. Don't travel if you are having problems sitting in a car or doing a lot of walking, or if you are experiencing swelling—you may not enjoy the trip. Don't travel if your pregnancy is high-risk.
It is inadvisable to travel during your third trimester. You could go into labor at any time, your water could break, and a doctor might not accept you as a patient.
If you cannot avoid traveling, make sure you discuss your situation with your doctor. Also, check with your doctor if your partner is planning to travel.
