Going to a gig/ concert

Oct 5th, 2008, 11:36 AM   #1
 
What are your views on this?

My oh has bought me tickets to go see the kooks who i love, this december at empress ballroom in blackpool. However, it's a standing gig and small capacity.

Ill be 4 1/2 to 5 months.

Reckon it's safe to go???

I'm going to see MGMT in similar circumstance at the beginning of November. I'm just going to be really careful to stay away from crowds at the front and not go to the bar etc just in case I get pushed about!

Haha i used to go to metal gigs when i was 7months pregnant with my son, as long as you stay away from the energetic areas it's still ok to stand in the crowd - it sometimes helps you to keep standing when your crammed up. Just keep your bag or arms infront of your bump and drink plenty of sugary drinks, e.g squash or lucazade.
Most people around you will see that your preggers anyway so will probably be nice. The kooks don't have mosh pits anyway so i think you'll be safe

Hi Hun, I am so envious of you going to see the kooks! I would certainly go if i was you. At 4 and 1/2 mths you will have a bump so evidential to others youre preggers and it's not one of those concerts where you will get pushed about, I bet hubby will be protective anyway! go have fun and and sing it may be your last chance for a while!!!

Gigs are really nice to go to when your pregnant, the happy hormones sent to the baby plus the loud music makes it dance about so if you haven't felt it move by then you probably will that night, my son was actually named after a band because that's the first time i felt him move and there on after every time i listened to the album he used to jiggle about, he still loves them now at 2!

I have never seen them before. Had tickets last year to see them supporting the coral but fell ill! Gutted isn't the word. Wouldn't give it a second thought if it was a seated event. X

I went to see Razorlight last year when I was 7 months and it was standing - I had a great night, just stood in front of the sound stage and it was cool

Ive been to loads of gigs all through this pregnancy and have been fine. The baby stays so still during gigs, it really likes loud music, which is good

My last gig before I have the baby will be at around 35 weeks. I'm sitting for it but it's a band I never liked till I got pregnant (Slayer) so it's the baby's band, which will be nice for the baby

How far along will you be when they play?

I've said all along that I'll carry on going to gigs up to 38 weeks. It's getting a bit more difficult to stand for too long now but sometimes, when it's a band I love, I don't even realise how much things hurt till they've finished

It's something I'll really miss once the baby is here, going to gigs, so have decided I should go to them while I can
