To maximize the amount of space you have on the plane, do everything possible to avoid middle seat. An aisle seat is ideal for you to not have to go to people to go to the bathroom. Sometimes, while booking your flight online give you the choice between the aisle and the window. If not given this option, after reservation, go directly to the website of the airline.

Log in to your account or create one and find your seat number. The website will show you a diagram of empty seats that can be chosen. If your airline does not, then your last option is to ask on the approach. The airline must be able to accommodate if there are open spaces.

Take snacks. Pregnant women need to consume an added 300 calories a day in order to meet the nutritional needs of their unborn child. Airline food may be inadequate, and and although the airline sometimes also offer appetizers of pretzels or chips, this is not a pretty enough or healthy snack for you. Bring a sandwich, cheese or fresh fruit. A bag of roasted almonds is also a healthy option.
