I am the Maid/Matron of Honor in my best friends wedding. I have planned her bachelorette, and will be flying to attend as we do not live in the same city. I will be 19 weeks pregnant. The girls wanted to go to a male strip club so that’s the plan after dinner on Saturday. Normally I would think this would be hilarious and fun but being pregnant, I’m not sure I want to attend. I will be participating in all other festivities. What would you do?

I’m really confused what your pregnancy has to do with anything unless the strip club allows smoking. Then I could see why you wouldn’t want to be in such a small area with concentrated second hand smoke. But I think that’s true for most people who aren’t smokers regardless of the state of their uterus. It is why I tend to avoid most casinos.
But if this is otherwise an activity you would normally enjoy and attend, I don’t see why you would miss that. You’re not going to scandalize your 19 week old fetus.

How does being pregnant relate to going to a strip club?

Can you explain how being pregant makes you feel differently and then we might be able to help. Is it that it just feels like you shouldn’t? People would judge you?

I don’t see what pregnant has to do with strip club unless there was smoking like PP mentioned. Otherwise, missing out on the drinking?? I can see how it’d be more fun with a few drinks in me, but I wouldn’t skip on account of that.

I would also feel self conscious and awkward in a strip club pregnant, you feel like you’re doing something wrong!
If you look pregnant you probably don’t want to go, but if you don’t I would say go for it! It’s only a bit of fun! And no strangers will know about the extra passenger so whatever!

I’d go. You don’t have to get a lap dance or get on stage, just sit and enjoy the view 🤣

I can see why you might feel a little awkward, though I’d feel that way mostly because I’d be the only sober one with a bunch of drunk girls. I think if you’re just worried how it will look, though (which you shouldn’t be anyway), you should still go! At 19 weeks, you probably won’t be glaringly pregnant anyway.
However it may be a long night and if you’re feeling tired or unwell, I’m sure everyone will be extremely understanding if you head back early. I wouldn’t worry too much about it and just feel the moment when the time comes.

Unless your pregnancy has complications or youu’re just feeling shitty all the time then I can’t see how it’s relevant? At 19 weeks you should be coasting along in the prime of pregnancy, not too huge yet, no longer dealing with nasty 1st tri symptoms…sounds like an ideal time to enjoy a night out with your friends!
That said if you feel uncomfortable about it for any reason then you of course shouldn’t go.

Is it because you’re worried about it being super crowded? I’m 22 weeks pregnant, and I would not want to go to a super crowded club where people are all pushing against me…. like a DANCE club or something.
But I’ve been to a male strip club and it wasn’t like that at all. You’ll have a table and chairs and your own private spot. It’ll be fine! You won’t be able to do this stuff nearly as much with a child, so have fun with your friends while you can!
Also, hopefully you’ll be feeling great at 19 weeks and can stay up later than in the first trimester. First trimester I was passing out at 8 pm every night. Now at 22 weeks I feel great and can stay up late if I want. They call it the “pregnancy honeymoon” for a reason.

I don’t see a correlation here.
Are you concerned male strippers may thrust into your unborn child and cause complications? Or just concerned about a lot of rowdy people being in one space, that you may get bumped into or something? Or is it more of a psychological thing?

male strippers thrusting OMG I laughed out loud. Good times.

I understand what you’re getting at. I feel weird about going to bars and stuff at 21 weeks but only because I’m showing and I feel like I’d be getting the side eye from everyone. I can still easily hide the bump though, so being 19 weeks, I think you should be fine to go. Just wear something loose fitting and no one will notice.
