Okay, so it’s still a few months away but I’m kinda in a predicament. I am currently 29 weeks pregnant which makes my due date April 1st, with our anniversay April 9th!
I’m not real sure what we should do…. Can’t really take any trips of course b/c of lthe possiblity of abor & well new baby = all extra money going to baby stuff.
I was thinking that maybe we could/should combine our anniversary with DH’s bday on March 28….. Of course that’s all if I don’t go into labor early at all. =/
IDK… Do any of you ladies have any ideas for something not over the top extravegant, costly, or impeding on the possibility of labor…. but still great for celebrating our first full year as husband & wife?
Thanks In Advance
ETA: yea… when we started TTC I didn’t think about our anniversary & conflicting dates. =/ lol

Give him a baby as a presents? Haha jk. I can tell you’re really stressed about it =)
Just take it easy, of course you want to celebrate hardcore and do the whole shabang, but maybe just do something nice for him like have candles and give him a back/foot massage and go out to dinner. =)

I would just go out for a nice dinner. Definitely wouldnt take any trips far from home. You could always do something bigger after the baby comes

I have the same dilemna. Our due date is our wedding anniversary and my husbands birthday.

Maybe schedule a couple’s massage? SO and I did one that involved a soaking tub/massage and it was heaven. (Plus they usually leave you alone in the room for quite a while so you have have a little fun, too!) That won’t set you back too much and will be romantic and relaxing. If you’ve already had the baby at that point, then you can just reschedule it for a few weeks later.

Yea, I think a dinner out would probably be the best option.
I, rather my husband!, is in the same predicament! I’m due 4/30 and my big 3-0 is 5/5! So he’s got to get creative on that one.
But I told him I’m not expecting anything huge since it will be hard to plan with a due date right around there!

I’d plan a nice dinner out somewhere. Shouldn’t be too expensive but would be a nice way to celebrate together.

We’re in a similar boat, anniversary is March 25th and baby due April 13th, so I’ll be 38 weeks pregnant for our anniversary. We’re planning on doing a romantic evening close to home, maybe even getting a hotel room just to get out of the house, but nothing that involves too much activity or requires us to leave town.

We were only a little pregnant for our 1st anniversary but we went out to dinner and then stayed the night at the hotel we stayed at on our wedding night. It was nice. I’d definitely go low-key. A couple’s massage sounds awesome. Heck, it sounds awesome right now for no special event.

I delivered on September 20th and our anniversary was the 25th. I personally didn’t want to go out because I didn’t want to leave my LO. We had already decided we weren’t going to do gifts because our LO was the best gift for our first anniversary. I didn’t have the top tier of our wedding cake, so I ordered a small anniversary cake, and he cooked me dinner. It was the best way to celebrate our anniversary. The two of us and our newest member of the family.
For our 2nd anniversary our LO will be a year old, and Darling Husband best friend is getting married in Lake Placid. We decided we would take a little extra long vacation up there and celebrate, but we are planning on bringing our LO with us 🙂

I vote for massage or pedicures 🙂 My husband loves both of these!

I like the massage idea! I had totally forgotten that even that close to my due date I can still travel to Houston b/c that’s where my midwife is! There’s a great maternity spa (where we got our u/s) that does couples massages AND a really nice restaraunt next door.
We live in a smaller city so there isn’t really any good places to get a massage OR eat here. lol
I think I still want to go ahead and celebrate it on DH’s birthday just so I know we’ll get to (or atleast be more likely to)
Thanks ladies! I feel much better about it all =)

@runsyellowlites: Is there a “larger” city close by? We live about 45 minutes from San Francisco and when we want to do something special we often do dinner and an overnight stay in the city. Perhaps a small local trip would be okay?

@Treejewel19: Everything is 2 hours away BUT one of the cities is the same city my midwife is in (she comes to me from oot)… SOOOOOO I’m okayed for a trip there anytime b/c IF I went into labor I could just head over to her office =)
I am officially happy! lol
