    @Mrslovebug:  I want to go to this SOOO badly haha.  I’m jealous, I’m nowhere near Florida.  Go, be smart about it, and have a great time – you probably won’t be doing this again anytime really soon after baby arrives anyway!

    @Mrslovebug:  While the OB says it’s okay I don’t see how exposing your baby to constant loud noises and vibrations over a period of two days is a good idea.  Also, if you’re from Texas, are you okay with delivering your baby in Jax should it cause you to go into early labor?  I’m from Jax and I know the concert you’re talking about.  I personally wouldn’t recommend it.

    @Mrslovebug:  Wow, that’s one heck of a line up! It’s really up to you (since your doc Okayed it), but in my case we turned down the chance to even go to the Lindsay Sterling (amazing electric violinist) concert because I’ll be 38 weeks pregnant. I just can’t imagine the constant noise of the concert being good for our little girl, no matter what the doctor says. 

    I really, really don’t feel like going into labor at such a public venue where it would be such a hassle to navigate my way out of should we need to.

    Babies don’t really have a “due date” as I’m sure you know. They estimate when they’ll be here, but only baby can decide when he/she wants to meet you! So, I’ll be passing up our concert. I just can’t foresee it being worth it. There will be more in the future!

    I’d consider going if I had a chair to sit in away from the crowd or seats.  I wouldn’t sit up close though and I definitely wouldn’t be standing.  And it’s sort of hard to tell how you’ll be feeling at 37 weeks until you get there.  As long as you aren’t too close, I don’t think the music or distance (2.5 hours) would be a problem.

    I would pass at 37 weeks. Even though your OB said it would be ok, if you went in to labor you are far from home and I wouldn’t risk it. Also I don’t know a lot about pregnancy but I can’t imagine that 2 days of loud rock music in Florida heat would be good for you or the baby.

    I don’t know, I’d skip it.
    Frankly I’d be more worried about the FANS than I would about going into early labor, the noise, etc.
    You get one trashed dude on a pushing and shoving rampage, well… it doesn’t really seem worth it to me.

    If you want to go and feel up to it, I see nothing wrong with it.  You might not feel like it though.  I’m 37 weeks now and so uncomfortable, I couldn’t imagine going somewhere far away from home that wouldn’t be easy to leave from and dealing with obnoxious drunk people!  You might feel great, though. You never know!  I just know a few weeks ago I was feeling great and didn’t think I’d ever get to the uncomfortable stage, but it pops up on ya! It would probably send me into a pregnancy rage and I’d end up in jail for punching someone lol!  Safety wise, though I think you’d be just fine if youi’re aware of your surroundings and stay away from large crowds.

    @Mrslovebug:  I’d skip it purely based on the fact that I am not a fan of huge crowds and with the amount of time i spend in the bathroom these days I think I’d be miserable at an outdoor concert venue (or any venue with a large crowd) waiting to use the bathroom, or in a huge line to get food. Ha, the things I worry about! I’ve been feeling great (i’m 35w now) but I’m just starting to deal with a bit of swelling. It’s not awful, but certainly not comfortable, i avoid walking long distances at all costs. Noise wise, I’m sure baby would be okay, we saw Garth Brooks in vegas at the beginning of january (29 weeks) and the cirque show Love, both not concert loud but were smaller crowds and no long bathroom lines =)
