Celebrating your birthday when you are pregnant can be pretty challenging, especially if you are in the late stages of pregnancy. However, you should not let your current condition stop you from commemorating this special day.
Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t go to the spa. And what better way to enjoy spa day than having your partner or best friend accompany you on this special day? Many spas also offer discounts to birthday celebrants. Hence, you won’t feel that much strain on your wallet.
Furthermore, most spas have unique treatments for pregnant women, such as prenatal massages, which will help you relax. Getting a spa treatment can help relieve pains, aches, and exhaustion brought on by pregnancy.
However, please don’t book treatments that involve jacuzzis, saunas, and hot tubs to avoid the risks of overheating, fainting, and dehydration.
Have a Dinner Party
Eating lunch with family, neighbors, or friends is one of the best ways to bond. Sharing food, laughter, and stories will surely make your birthday special. Whether in a local restaurant or at your home, dinner parties are something everyone will look out to attend.
If you want your dinner party to proceed smoothly, create a birthday party planning checklist so you won’t miss anything important. During the dinner party, you can ask moms and other guests for tips on making pregnancy easier and raising a child well.
When eating dinner, go easy on fried and spicy foods, as they can upset your stomach. Meanwhile, some of the best food to take during pregnancy include leafy greens, eggs, salmon, lean meat, and sweet potatoes.
Classic Date Night
Spending time alone with your husband or partner is another great way to celebrate your birthday during pregnancy. Not only will it improve your intimacy with each other, but this will allow you to rekindle that attraction for each other.
The best thing about a classic date night is that you can do almost anything, such as eat out in your favorite restaurant or watch a movie. You can also visit the place where you two met and recount the good memories you had together.
If you are on a budget, you can prepare dinner via candlelight and a bottle of decent wine instead. You can also eat some desserts or make it a cheat day altogether. For entertainment, why not stream a movie that both of you enjoyed for movie night?
Whatever a woman’s age, you can’t say they don’t love shopping. If you like going to the mall and shopping sprees, doing it on your birthday is a great idea. For the most part, you are going out for a date or dinner, so why not take the opportunity to buy some needed items?
Maternity clothes, supportive bras, prenatal vitamins, and morning sickness remedies should be at the top of your shopping list. You can also buy baby items that you will need later. Don’t hesitate to splurge on comfort items such as maternity pillows, leggings, and a comfy mattress topper.
If you want to see how you’ll look under a maternity cloth, try wearing a fake bump under neat it and see if it fits you well. You can also grab a friend who is already a mother so that she can give you some helpful advice.
Birthday Maternity Photo Shoot
Pregnancy is one of the most precious moments in a mother’s life. Hence, taking a photo shoot with your family is a must.
The perfect time to get a maternity shoot is when you already have a baby bump, which usually shows between 16 and 20 weeks. If your birthday doesn’t fall in this period, you can still get a birthday shoot by adding accessories like a “were expecting” sign.
To get an epic photo during the shoot, wear a fabulous maternity dress and be confident about yourself.
You can also place birthday balloons above you, showing your age.
If you are pregnant during the summer and the weather is great, consider hosting a pool party. Invite your relatives and friends so they too can celebrate your birthday. Everyone, even your hubby's buddies, can have a fantastic time in the water.
The pool day is also the perfect time to show that maternity swimsuit you have saved. You can also wear a few accessories, such as a beach hat, to accompany your get-up. Wear something comfortable, be it a one-piece, two-piece, bikini, halter, flounce, or underwire.
Avoid wearing dark-colored swimsuits if you plan to stay under the sun longer. Instead, wear light-colored swimwear which doesn’t absorb sunlight as much.
Celebrating your pregnancy and birthday is one of the most exciting moments in your life. After all, you are rejoicing for your life and the life you are to bring to this world.
