I was wondering if anyone knew if it was safe to go to the formula 1 GP when you're 31 weeks pregnant?
Should I be worried about the noise for my baby?
Thanks for any advice

I wouldn't have a clue! but just to say I'm envy enjoy the GP wink

I would expect it to be perfectly safe but since it is expensive to get tickets I would perhaps ask a midwife for confirmation before you spend your money.

Thanks. Thing is, I'm sitting in the practice session now and thought I'd check if anyone knew.
Should have probably thought if this earlier, but tickets were bought before I was expecting smile

I really wouldn't worry too much. It can't be that different from attending a rock concert or living next door to Heathrow airport can it? Also it is not a long term exposure, it is just a day!

A quick google has not uncovered any evidence of risk.

Merlioness give us a wave wink I'm watching the practice session! grin

Thanks kat. I couldn't find anything either but searching from phone is not so easy.

So who are you or DH rooting for?

Trying to do some pregnant lady spotting wink whereabouts are you sitting?

Merlioness Fri 23-Sep-11 12:21:46

Pit grandstand. Bottom row in yellow seats with a huge gap to my left. Not sure if they show this side of the pit lane?

DH rooting for Button grin
Me: Mumsnetting and enjoying baby kicks wink

Bluetinkerbell Fri 23-Sep-11 12:25:02

Ok I will try and spot!

I'm a Hamilton fan, DH is a Button fan wink
So lots of kicks then grin baby reacting to the noise?

Not too different to normal around this time I must say.

Hamilton didn't turn up on time for autographs yesterday. The only one we didn't get sad

Bluetinkerbell Fri 23-Sep-11 12:29:56

oooh even more jealous now... you've got autographs! any other nice freebies you got?

Merlioness Fri 23-Sep-11 12:38:27

Nope, just won the autograph session. I'm not normally that lucky.
