It would be inadvisable to travel as heavily pregnant as 34 weeks. The safest time to travel during pregnancy is the second trimester (12 - 24 weeks).

It must also have your expected due date stated on it. If you are expecting twins and/or suffer from diabetes, it is inadvisable to travel at any stage of pregnancy.

You went to the doctor and were told that you are about 6 weeks pregnant but you were a virgin until 3-4 weeks ago. Can the doctor be wrong?

Yes, they can be wrong, but are not likely to be. Doctors use much more accurate tests for pregnancy than home pregnancy tests. As to the difference between the actual date of sexual activity and the doctor's assessment, the doctor considers the date of conception to be the first day of the last period, which could have been 6 weeks ago. The reality is that actual conception dates and due dates are, at best, educated estimates. The doctor may, and probably will, revise the dates later in the pregnancy as more developmental information about the fetus becomes available from ultrasounds, etc. But, if still in doubt, consult your physician.

You delayed fo 4 days but before that you have do a test of pregnancy test then it might be a positive how could you know how many weeks your beybi?

The full term of a pregnancy is 40 weeks. This term is calculated from the end date of a woman's last mense (period) hence determining the date of birth. However, this date is approximate and can be incorrect by 2 weeks before or after. This is because a woman can conceive late in her menstural cycle when she has already ovulated ready for her period and the second ovum is getting ready, it is the second ovum that fertilizes, hence she will be pregnant when she has her last period or she can conceive immediately after her last period or two weeks (midway) in her cycle, making the estimated date of birth acurate to within 2 weeks either way. This also goes for those women with irregular cycles. Hopes this info helps.
