With a bun in the oven that will arrive in a few months, opportunities to spend time alone with your partner may soon be few and far between. Take advantage of this Valentine’s Day and plan a romantic evening that will give the two of you the chance to strengthen your bond and enjoy some quality time together.
Dinner and a movie. This classic date night activity almost never disappoints. Instead of squeezing into the tight rows of the local movie theater, you may want to rent the latest blockbuster or your favorite flick and curl up with your main squeeze at home. Depending on your preference, you can splurge for reservations at a five star restaurant or order in so you can focus on cultivating an intimate and comfortable atmosphere.
Get physical. Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean that you can’t get up and moving. If you and your partner love the outdoors, you can take a hike along a picturesque trail or heat up the competitive spark with a game of pool or a trip to the bowling alley. Engaging in a heart-pumping activity can get those endorphins rolling, and all of that energy may spill over into the bedroom, making for a festive V-day evening.
A beach vacation. Few things are as relaxing as reclining along the sandy shores of the beach. Encourage your partner to take a day off from work and travel to your favorite ocean-side locale. Traveling with a newborn is more laborious than it is fun, so you may want to take advantage of this time to kick back and relax. Consider looking for a resort with a spa so you can indulge in his and hers massages, which will be sure to loosen you up for a playful romp afterward!
