Help! Thoughts on flying in first trimester

Hi,
Looking for some advise etc on flying in first trimester. I am bridesmaid for a close friend and have her hens in 4 weeks which I hope to be 10 weeks pregnant by then. I obviously didn't plan the pregnancy as in I had just come off the pill and had an 'accident'. My question is do I go on the hens? It's a 2 and a half hour flight to a mental destination full of hens and stags? I'm nervous of going and it getting messy, not from my friends but everyone else around me. I'm starting to show already so if imagine id be a little bigger then. Any opinions/thoughts would help.
Many thanks.

Hi, I know this was a couple of months ago. But I wanted to know did you go to the hens and how your pregnancy is progressing? Did you end up flying? I've been reading up lots of things in travelling during first trimester.

Hi just saw this thread I went to a hen in Edinburgh at 11 weeks in my first, have a a 13 month old now. Went to wedding in Poland at 6 weeks currently 14 weeks. Checked with mid wife both times to get advice was told to wear flight pressure socks on the flight. Just thought I'd throw this in, was terrified both times though to be honest and morning sickness was way worse when away!
