Romantic Date Ideas during Pregnancy

by Savannah Hernandez and Tabatha Jones

sunsetThis may be one of your last chances to spend a romantic evening with your significant other before you have your blessed baby. Spend the day pampering yourself and put on your favorite maternity dress – even if you have to buy one. Feeling good about yourself affects your attitude and you deserve to feel beautiful. Here are some ideas to make this a date to remember by showing your partner just how much you care.

Sunset picnic -– Find a romantic spot with a great view of the sunset and pack his favorite dinner to go. One of the most romantic dates is an evening alone watching the sunset.

Favorite restaurant delivery -– Even if they don't deliver, drop it off to his office at the front desk. If your spouse has to work on Valentine's Day send him a special meal sealed with a romantic note of the evening you are planning.

Love notes hidden in balloons -– Make 10 love notes of why you love your spouse and put them in the balloons before you have them blown up. Leave a note that tells him to pop the balloons.

Love coupons -- Good for one: full body massage, dance in the rain, romantic dinner for two, champagne and cuddling by the fire, a kiss anytime, anywhere.

"Meet me" hunt -– Start by leaving a big note on the dining table sending him to another location. At that location leave a gift with another note which goes on until you finally send him to where you are with a surprise for him.

A romantic bath -– Light candles and cover the tub with rose pedals and bath suds.

Delivery -– Send your spouse a love letter in an envelope filled with hearts and kisses. Don't write a return address if you live together. Ask him to get the mail.

Massage for two -– Make an appointment for you to share a couple’s massage.

Maternity photo shoot -– Set up a studio in your home where you leave the camera for him and you are waiting wearing a sheet alone.

Application for love -- Write a cover letter and resume applying for the position to be his wife. In the cover letter explain why you want to apply for the position. Fill your resume with a history of events and good times you have spent together.

Savannah Hernandez and Tabatha Jones, owners of Mommy Appelseed Maternity Clothing, grew up together and have remained close friends ever since. They came up with the idea of starting an online maternity clothes boutique while discussing their decisions to expand our families. Remembering the dull maternity fashions during their first pregnancies compelled them to open an maternity clothes boutique that offered comfortable, sexy maternity clothes without sacrificing style.

Thank you for these great ideas. I met my fiance after I got pregnant when I decided to comb through some online dating sites. We were in love from the first date, and he stepped into a fatherly role so quickly I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. I've been feeling guilty lately (as my due date nears) that because I was pregnant when he first met me, we didn't have the opportunity to romance the way a new couple should have. These are some great ideas that I'll be sure to surprise him with!
