I would also say it depends on where you are sleeping. it can be hard to sleep in late pregnancy even with a nice mattress and lots of pillows propping you up. I am seven months with no. 3 and no way could I sleep on a ground mat. By day two I would be miserable.
That would sooooo be my plan too! I think if it's your first pregnancy and you're used to camping, it would be easy to underestimate how hard you might find it. Ditto toilets. I'd definitely go for arrangements allowing a decent shower, quiet at night, proper toilets and some straightforward food. The loud music, dancing and walking (bar SPD) are the easy bits!
I did festival at about 13 weeks, the not drinking was weird!! Have been a few times previously but we are old now and stay in a Travelodge, makes a big difference. No way would I have camped, it was really muddy last year and it would have been horrible worrying about falling in the mud at night.
I'm going to a festival at 27 weeks. But we're not camping - staying with a friend nearby. Originally we were worried about taxi costs back and forth, but obviously now we've got a free one, ie muggins here. I don't know how long I'll last each day, but stuff it, going anyway.
Am hoping that this months attempt at dc#2 has worked. We managed to get tickets for Glastonbury this year after trying for years since we last went so we will definitely be going either way! With dd#1 we camped in Cornwall for a week when I was 20 weeks gone and had a basic camp bed that was a few inches off the floor. I was perfectly comfortable :-)
I went to a festival at 23 weeks in my first pregnancy it was ace it was latitude though which is pretty family friendly so no one blinked twice, there were people there far more pregnant than me. We took DD back the next year, she was so cute in her wee ear defenders!
At 37 weeks I went to a festival for the day only, it was fun, exhausting, tiring, got my chatting to loads of wasted randoms. Pushing for toilet queues between bands was NOT fun, especially as it got dark and drunk men got even clumsier. But it was a great last chance to have child free fun!!
I also went to Glastonbury at 11 weeks pregnant, where I was over paranoid about falling over and as I didn't look pregnant, no one even noticed that they needed to be careful around me. It was miserable in the rain when my friends were dancing in the rain and I wanted hot cider and I ended up miscarrying at 12 weeks so should of got drunk anyway.
Thanks everyone it's just the day don't fancy camping not the state the place gets esp toilets!! I'll be about 34 weeks dc3 I have traveled to Hungary at that stage BY car lol wasn't too bad so sure I can hack a festival and bit of dancing just not to stay too late when ppl are getting rowdy and pretty much off it lol
