7 Valentine’s Day Date Ideas For a Pregnant Couple
Your heart is overflowing with love toward your growing family, and the days are being counted down until you hold your new addition. What better holiday than Valentine’s Day to celebrate your final days as a couple before you become parents! Take this opportunity to spend some quality time with your significant other.
Depending on your budget (and your mood), one of these ideas may be exactly what your relationship is craving this Valentine’s Day!
7 Valentine’s Day Date Ideas
Dinner and a Movie
Get dolled up or wear your favorite stretchy pants and head out for a date night. You can reserve a table at a fine dining restaurant - or skip the fancy and follow your cravings. You can see a movie first to avoid the crowded Valentine’s Day theaters.
See Your Baby and Record Her Heartbeat
Call and book a special appointment through an elective ultrasound boutique nearby. You and your partner can ‘ooooh’ and ‘aaaahh’ over your sweet little baby for a few minutes. Make sure you record her heartbeat and bring home a My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear Animal with an adorable Valentine’s Day tutu or bowtie!
Being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t sing your heart out in the front row. Mix up some mocktails and grab some tickets to a concert before they sell out. Your nap the next day will be well worth the late night.
A Couple’s Massage and Pampering
Valentine’s week and weekend tend to book quickly at highly reviewed spas, so start calling around now. You can reserve yourself a prenatal massage, facial, and mani/pedi and let your significant other choose his package.
A Shopping Trip
Sometimes you just want to go shopping. From baby clothes and nursery furniture to new art for the walls of your house, it can be fun to walk around stores as a couple. You can window shop, drive to the outlet stores, or search through antique shops together. Make sure you stop for a fancy coffee or tea and sit down every so often.
A Dessert Shop
It’s ok to skip dinner and head right for dessert. Find a small bakery and share a sampler-style plate of the highest recommended baked goods.
Get Takeout and Have Sex
Did you know that grabbing takeout and staying in your pj’s all evening may help keep your stress levels down? If that’s not beneficial enough, having sex while pregnant is great for you! Don’t believe me? Read all about it here.
No matter how you celebrate this Valentine’s Day, make sure that you take a few moments to soak in exactly how you are feeling at this stage of your relationship.
