Pregnant

Postby MGPHG » Sun Jun 19, 2011 9:59 pm

Hi all,

My wife and I are coming to Sonisphere UK this year, but she will be 4 months pregnant, we were just wondering about the toilet situation - is there any special areas (maybe disabled) she could use as she needt to go about every 5 minutes! Or will she just have to que with everyone else?

Cheers

Queues arent that bad to be honest. We found there were some quieter than others, that there weren't really any queues at at all.

if all else fails, buy a pass the "comfy crappers" or other posh toilets.

a couple bits of advice though: get up at about 06:00ish to use the toilets or if you do get up later, go to the ones in the arena as they will be quieter.

basically do the opposite of what you think everyone else is doing. (campsite whilst popular bands are on, avoid going during the breaks, arena first thing in the morning, posh toilets if required, etc).

hope this helps.

Just tell people that she's pregnant and they won't moan every can understand it
If not you'll find some toilets are busier than others
Stay away from the main arena ones and you'll be fine

According to British law, a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants. But most importantly, she can, upon request pee in a Policeman's helmet

Saw a few police there last year so might be worth considering :lol:

At 4 months, depending on how slim she was prepregnancy, she may have a visible bump so people will be nicer when/if she says she's pregnant anyway.
I'd happily let a pregnant woman pee before me, so hopefully others will too.

We were told by a very moody fuzzy at DL last year to p!ss-off and it was a load of b0ll0cks!
So is it fact or urban myth??
He was in a right foul mood to be fair, so maybe he just didn't want to get his hair wet! :mrgreen:

There may have been by-laws (as opposed to national statute laws) which once gave pregnant women the right to do so, but it's mostly utter tosh.

Most likely source was the fact that coppers wouldn't nick a woman who was having a pee in public, if she visibly had an 'occupied' womb and developed from there.

I would advise her not to go near the front of the crowd.

It's something to do with not being allowed to touch a policemans hat or something, and that pregnant women can't be denied a place to go....
So in theory, they are entitled to pee in his helmet.

I remember some reports of a woman at the front of the barrier with a baby in a pram for Rammestien.
That's either dedication or terrible parenting.

But going Pregnant should be fine, as-long as you stay away from compact areas for copious amounts of times, and the pits...you might get falcon punched in a pit.
