To go out to spoons when pregnant
ilovepuppys · 03/11/2018 18:53
So boyfriends birthday today! He is out with friends celebrating in weather spoons tonight ! I wish I could have joined earlier but have work until 11. Would I be being unreasonable if I popped in to spoons for a soft drink and joined everyone for an hour? I am 5 months pregnant! Is this weird? Lol ever since I've been pregnant haven't been out to pubs or anything!

Not at all, at 5 months it might not even be obvious your pregnant? Especially in this weather if you’re wrapped up warm.

I’d say the only barrier is does any sober person want to be in Spoons at that time?!

Not at all! I’m 5 months and was in the pub until half 12 last night. Missed my red wine but had a good time apart from that!

Of course it's not weird and YANBU. Sitting in a pub drinking a soft drink is a completely normal thing to do when pregnant. Enjoy your evening.

why wouldnt it be fine
do pregnant women need to be hidden away or something

@TakeAChanseyOnMe I know! I'm probably being paranoid but I know quite a few people who will be there and they know I'm pregnant and I don't want them to think badly of a pregnant woman in a pub! Guess I feel that way after being told once pregnant people don't belong in places like that after 9pm and I've taken it to heart ￼

Are you quite young? Its an odd thing to worry about. Go and have fun!
kaytee87 · 03/11/2018 18:57
Who told you that and why 9pm in particular? Pregnant women are not children.

When I was 8.5 months pregnant we hosted my husband’s 30th birthday party in a swanky cocktail bar in London. We specifically chose it so I could feel like I was having fun joining in too with their great mocktail menu. I had a ball. Just because your pregnant doesn’t mean your life stops yes they might judge you if you got blind drunk or went bungy jumping but you really can do most things everyone else can do and now is the time to make the most of it. When you have a tiny baby it is a lot harder to get out.

I went out to a night club pregnant for my husbands birthday. A friend done the same for her husbands. We stayed away from the dancefloor area but still had a dance with our group in a quieter area. I don't care what a bunch of pissed strangers think and my mates knew I was not a drunken irresponsible pregnant person!

@DaanSaaf yep I thought the same until a late dating scan! 😂 23+3

What idiot told you that! Of course you can go anywhere you want when you are pregnant. It's your body.

When I was pregnant two people (men) told me ‘bars aren’t for pregnants’ at about 9pm so I understand OP. And at least two people saying to me ‘I hope that’s a mocktail’ etc etc. Ffs. Anyway, yadnbu.

There will be plenty of time for not going out to pubs after the baby arrives 😀. Make the most of not having to worry about a small person and get to the pub

If I was you I would go and enjoy yourself. Make sure u wrap up warm and have fun x

They either won't think badly of you, or aren't people whose opinion you should care about.

Go and enjoy yourself! Few years ago we had our annual girls Christmas meal and drinks, one was about 8 months at the time and she was massive. She obviously was on soft drinks all night and had a great night. I can say she got some looks from judgy idiots but she didn’t rise to it. You’re pregnant, you shouldnt be confined to your house. Have a wonderful time!
