thanks for the long and informative post. We might do a two weeks trip
to Egypt in December (her 5th month). The flight should be no problem
(around 4 hours), the only uncertainty could be the food, meaning that
in the worst case she would get food poisoning. But Egypt is touristy
enough to offer a range of restaurants so we might simply stick with the
better ones. Also, my wife is Malaysian, so she has already been exposed
to a certain extent to, let's say, not perfectly clean food.
If not Egypt, the other option would be simply to fly again to Malaysia
(if I manage to catch a flight). Here the problem is the long flight (12
- 15 hours), as pregnant women run a higher risk of thrombosis according
to our doctor. To cope with this she would need to walk a bit every hour
or two hours. Several of our Malaysian friends here in Munich flew
without problems to Malaysia in the middle of the pregnancy. Malaysia
has the advantage that her family is there and she is used to it.
