I know there are some seasoned travelers on here. We are used to short trips - 2-3 hour flights with a connection. I am thinking of taking my daughter (will be 6) on a 5-6 hour flight cross country this summer. Is it better just to get it over with and do the direct flight or should we go for a layover?

I hate layovers so much.

Also...I'll be ~5 months pregnant.
