(HealthDay News) -- If you travel by plane during pregnancy, take some extra time to ensure a more comfortable journey.

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists offers these suggestions:

  • Book an aisle seat, which can make it easier to get up, move around and stretch your legs.
  • Avoid carbonated beverages and foods that tend to cause gas.
  • Always wear your seatbelt, and keep it positioned below your belly.
  • Ask your doctor about the safety of taking anti-nausea medication, if needed.
