Our first anniversary is coming up in about 2 weeks and we don’t have anything planned. We don’t want to plan anything to major because it’s entirely possible we’ll be in the hospital with our newborn baby because I will also be 38 weeks pregnant when our first anniversary roles around. I’m obviously uncomfortable at this point and anything that requires a lot of running around is probably out. But does anyone have any ideas for making it memorable, even though our options of what to do are very limited? Any ideas?

I was also 39 weeks pregnant on our first anniversary! We kept it very casual and enjoyed a nice dinner at the place we were married at. I know it doesn’t sound super romantic, but it was nice having my “last meal” (my c section was scheduled for the following morning) be one that was from a place so special to us!
Is there a place close to your home that you can pack a picnic or go watch the sunset?

- Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom
I’m 13 weeks pregnant and our first wedding aniversary is at the end of this month. Before I got pregnant we talked about planning a weekend away (our aniversary happens to fall on a Monday, so we’d book a four day weekend). Now I don’t want to make plans because I have been so ill that some days I can’t get off the couch…and I don’t travel well…even the bus ride to work triggers my morning sickness some days. I wouldn’t want to suffer through traveling somewhere to find myself stuck in the hotel room sick!
We will likely just go for a nice dinner, which is all I really feel up to these days.

I agree to go on a super nice dinner and then go walking somewhere.

Happy early anniversary! You could stay at a nice hotel in your city. Swim in the hotel pool, go out to dinner nearby, relax in your room and get room service, get a couples massage if they have a spa….

MrsSeptemberPenguin : Darling Husband and I just celebrated 3 years and I’m in my second trimester, but already huge because this is our second pregnancy. I didn’t want to do anything crazy so we decided to do a day date with a nice lunch and shopping on the weekend and then on the actual day (during the week) we had a nice candlelit bubble bath at home and ate cake 🙂

I was also pregnant on my first wedding anniversary and hubby and I went out for a nice dinner and movie. And he surprised me with a beautiful anniversary band. It was low-key and perfect. 🙂

I had a 6 week old at our first anniversary. We went out for a nice dinner and left our daughter with my mom. Even if you are uncomfortable, try to enjoy your time alone together. It gets way harder once baby arrives!

I’m ten weeks pregnant and will be 35 weeks by the time our first anniversary rolls around in Feb, I’m thinking a dinner somewhere is going to be about all I’m up for? We were originally hoping to go to Bali but that’s now out obviously!!!

MrsSeptemberPenguin : I wasn’t pregnant for our first anniversary, but we didn’t have time or money to do anything big so we did a nice anniversary at home.
We woke up and had a huge breakfast, went for a hike with our pup (you could skip that, or do a much shorter walk), we made ‘our’ dinner, chili (it was the first dinner we ever made together), then we made homemade popcorn and had a movie night.
It might not sound like much but we both really enjoyed it and it was just nice to spend the entire day together! 🙂
