Moments before Beyoncé hit the stage at Heinz Field last Tuesday, I hit the floor– literally! Anxious to see the Queen Bey again was the least of my worries when I found out that there were two bathroom options for patrons with floor seats. You could choose from a series of ghastly portable bathrooms or walk up two flights of steps for a proper lavatory.
At 32 weeks pregnant, the journey was endless. Fatigued and tired, I made my way back to my seat and fell coming down my last set of steps. Beyoncé didn’t hit the stage yet so I had two options; either seek medical attention immediately or bare the pain to catch a just one more glimpse of Mrs. Carter herself.
The decision was clear. Although irresponsible, I stayed for one of the best concerts Pittsburgh has ever seen. Yoncé throwbacks intertwined with cool sips from her “lemonade” made the pain unrecognizable.
