I’m currently making the agonizing decision if I should go and see my favorite band of all time (Phish) for their potential NYE show in NYC this year. By that time I will be about 20-21 weeks pregnant and was curious if anyone has done this? Obviously I know smoke and such should be avoided and seats are preferred during the concert but just curious if any other bees have had this experience?

@nskillet: I think that it is perfectly fine to go to a concert while you are pregnant. I would just fear the amazing amount of people that might be at this particular concert and if the crowds could get rowdy. I think it also depends on where it is. If it’s in a venue with seating and you can just stay in your zone, then I don’t think it should be a concern.

I went to two concerts while pregnant. We had seats and it wasn’t a crazy crowd though. Baby would dance then fall asleep.

My first concert was Journey. My mom was 8 months pregnant and I’m totally normal har har!
Seriously it’s fine, just don’t lay down on a speaker or anything.

As long as you don’t mosh pit or anything, it should be fine. Have a good time now while your feeling well!

@mwitter80: Phish folk are pretty mellow.

Thanks ladies! You have reassured me!
Yeah, we’re all just swaying hippies honestly. Phish isn’t a very LOUD band either (as far as amptitude) and the rumored place the NYE show to be at MSG (Madison Square Garden) which is an ENORMOUS venue with lots of ample seating and places to move around. This will kinda be my last opportunity to see them for awhile as baby is due on May 15thish and they typically tour summers/falls.
I was having some slight mommy-guilt but appreciate all the feedback!

@KatyElle: That explains so much. Lol! (Jk, of course!)
I’m with Katy, Phish concert goers are more likely to break into a spontaneous joint passing party than a mosh pit. In my experience, anyway.

We went to a Social Distortion concert when I was just a few weeks preggo. I don’t see a problem with it.

@nskillet – I would go! Phish fans are mellow so I doubt you’ll have to worry about crazy crowds and moshing. have fun!

Just because you are pregnant does not mean that you cant partake in normal activites. Aside from drinking, smoking etc lol. Especially because you will only be around 20 weeks, you should be just fine going to a concert. Just be careful! Have fun go with your hunny and remember to really enjoy your pregnancy it will be the last time you can go out and have fun with your hunny or your friends and not have a baby or worry about your baby not being with you lol. Go the the concert and have fun. Pretty soon you will be a mommy!!
