    Good morning. On your first question it's not possible for you to have seen your last menstrual flow on 15th of December and missed it on 10th of January because by 10th of January you're not due to commence another period. Please go and repeat your blood pregnancy test again or see a doctor for further clarification. Secondly you should register for ANC as soon your pregnancy is confirmed. Yes you're safe to travel by Air or whichever means
