    @Mrs. Gremmlin:  Personally, I wouldn’t travel 2.5 hrs away at 39w. Even if you plan to labor at home, that’s different from laboring in a car. And you never know if there is an emergency and I would prefer to be at my hospital if something came up. I’m sure these bands aren’t going anywhere- maybe next year? Of course, just my opinion!

    I would ask your doc if you are even ALLOWED to go. Most doctors tell people not to get more than an hour away from the hospital in the last few weeks of pregnancy.

    With the other PPs. I dont really see this working in your favor due to two factors.

    1) the distance to your own hospital and doctor

    2) the (assuming) loud music. I dont think really loud noise is good for baby.

    HOWEVER, when you go into labor you dont have your baby right away it can be 5-24 hoursbefore you even go to the hospital at the first signs of contractions. Many women labor for hours so if your DH goes he will be able to leave right away and still have plenty of time to get to you.

    Definitely ask your doctor! I would go if my doctor said I could (but I’m sure I’ll go late, so…)

    I’m a sucker for letting my DH do what he wants and wouldn’t be able to say no if he was that excited (hell, I would probably encourage him to go!). That said, I would do the compromise of not going, but ‘letting’ him to go. Most likely, if you go into labor that day, you will have enough notice to tell him and he can leave to be with you. Another most likely scenario, you won’t go into labor that day. Personally, I would use that day on my own to get a massage, take a bath and relax a little before the baby gets here.

    My mom went on a road trip at 7 months, and it caused her to have me way early! She also told me a story about going to see Pink Floyd while she was pregnant with me (I don’t know how far along [edit: Just looked it up, hah! It would have been at 6 months]) and she said the loud and strong bass caused me to move around a lot. Not sure if that could set you off too.

    Not a parent, not pregnant, just saw the title and thought I’d throw in my stories.

    I personally wouldn’t go to the concert. There’s a really good chance you’ll have the baby at 39 weeks or sooner. It seems like everyone that I know who was pregnant lately has had their baby 2-3 weeks early (and they are first time moms!). I really wanted to go to Cirque to Soleil in our area but I’ll be 39 weeks at that point and I don’t want to waste the money in case I have the baby early and I’m unable to go.

    I’ll be 38 weeks pregnant this weekend and I would totally go to a concert if it was something I really wanted to do.  The biggest issue for me would be spending all of that time in the car, but wear comfortable clothing and stop as frequently as you want/need to walk around and stretch your legs.  I’m in the camp that you really only have a few weekends left just the two of you, spend them doing the things that you won’t be able to do for awhile.

    Worse comes to worse, if you have any signs of early labor you can sell the tickets on Craigslist.

    I wouldn’t go. Concerts come and go. If there’s even an inkling of something going wrong because of it, why even risk it?

    Something tells me that if guys had to be pregnant/give birth, they’d be more cautious in their activities and suggestions.
