  • Drink bottled water and heathy food that are allowed from your doctor only.
  • Pack plenty of healthy snacks in your hand luggage and remember that you need to drink plenty of water.
  • Take part in excercise activities on board, such as morning Tai Chi and nightly slow dance, but do keep in mind that pregnancy is not the time for any hard workout.
