Is it safe to go downtown to the local bars (non-smoking of course) just to dance with friends?

I just received an ear full from my husband on how he absolutely does NOT want me to go downtown while being 3 months pregnant. I go with a couple friends downtown to local bars to dance and have a good time once maybe every 2 weeks, no drinking for me and no smokey bars though!!! He is worried someone might hit my stomach, and that the loud music might be hurtful to our baby. Is he right? Or is it safe? Help!?

  • I think it's ok, but that's just me- you're pregnant not dead

  • I got bashed for my opinion on this. I personally wouldn't go out to a bar/club while pregnant. I wouldn't say that the loud noise will hurt your baby, but bar fights do happen and especially being prego I wouldn't want to be around that and possible get wrapped up into one. IMO I wouldn't, but a lot of other Moms don't agree with me.

  • I guess it depends on trhe type bar, rowdy or just a nice place to meet friends. Your not going to hurt the baby, like above said what if there is a fight, is there a lot of smokingt in the bar? It's kind of cute yur hubby thinks those thingsa about you little one. Well if you go have fun.

  • I think it would be just fine...but where do you find non-smoking bars? I don't go out anywhere like that around here because I can't breath as soon as I walk in.

  • I think dancing is a great way to stay in shape while being pregnant so keep doing it until you deliver! Just when you go stick to your friends, stay away from any drama or what-not & stick to water & smoke-free bars..
    Seriously- Walking down a city street or visiting a Mall is just as dangerous as a night club -- fights just dont break out at the club and people get shot walking down the street/ leaving stores..

  • I'm with these guys. Go have a good time, and just use good judgment (easier when sober, of course!).
