    How pregnant are you?

    We'll probably need to see your tits first.

    If you want to squeeze one out at the festival, then sure.

    You should be golden, as long as all are healthy and you are prepared for anything.

    This is why I love this board. People helping people.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    To offer something productive, I've seen very obviously pregnant women at Coachella, especially the one(s) in bikinis in 2005. One actually gave birth at Coachella that year!

    Is it safe? Well, the environment is potentially dangerous for anyone. If you play it safe (spend as much time in the shade as possible, staying hydrated and fed, pacing yourself, have plenty of personal when seeing bands, etc), then you and baby will be just fine

    There are EMT's on-site, and if you ever feel unwell, find someone in a shiny yellow jacket and they will summon one.

    as long as you stay in the shade during the day and away from the tight crowds during the evening it should be fine...

    You will be safe. It will just be so fucking uncomfortable I am assuming. All the extra weight, the bloated feet. The walking. Its bad for a fattie like me, if you're with child I can only assume all the hormones and shit will not make it so fun.

    Uh, you're not a girl-you can't speak to this.

    Look-it really depends on your tolerance of the heat, how much weight you're carrying around, how your pregnancy is going. If you were going to be in your second trimester, I'd say go for it-I remember feeling pretty damn good during my second trimester. I remember going to an all day music festival out at Compton Terrace (I think it was Springfest) and I felt great.

    My third trimester, I was pregnant during the entire summer. It was one of the most uncomfortable times of my life (and I was only 19 at the time). I was hot all the time, and I slept a good 16 hours a day. I also puked a lot and had swollen ankles, etc. I can't imagine going to a music festival out in 100 degree temperatures for three days. I know people do it, but I don't get how they tolerate it. I'd say stay home and take care of yourself, and save your health and your money for your baby. You'll need both.

    I would not want my anyone I knew going while pregnant just because of the intense heat , it could be 110+ just be prepared also there are still alot of people who smoke cigarettes+... and if there is band there like Rage stay the hell out of the pit.... oh and no camping. you need a soft bed and quiet... oh and if for some hellish reason U2 plays your baby may become self centered and arrogant for listening to the "anti christs" horrible voice... bewary of Bono .... imho....

    ok, this constitutes my personal opinion, but an experienced personal opinion...

    but, yeah, this is a terrible idea, if you are 8 or 9 months preggo, you need to be extremely careful...

    think about this for a second...

    heat + dehydration + smoke + bad food + intense exercise/activity + extremely loud noises + heavy traveling + pregnancy = horrible outcome that you, as a potential mother, should be horrified to consider.

    Wait a year, and even then baby stays at grandma/Grandpa for the weekend...

    If you feel that my advice, or any advice or comments offered by anyone on this board, is not reasonable; then get a valid opinion, from someone important and knowledgeable, I.E. YOUR DOCTOR, NOT THE INTERNET.

    If you are at all smart then you are already on first name basis with your obgyn, and you can call & ask and get an answer from them...

    I say no, do not attend Coachella this year.

    Stay home, take it easy, and watch the webcast.
