10 Valentine’s Day Date Ideas For the Expecting Couple

10 Valentine's Day Date Ideas For the Expecting CoupleI have only been pregnant once during Valentine’s Day. Almost 4 years ago, I was one week from giving birth, huge, happy and excited to meet my third child. I had never been pregnant during Valentine’s Day before, but I had experienced 2 years with brand new babies while attempting to have a romantic evening with my husband.

I am not, by nature, a romantic person. Truthfully, it wouldn’t bother me if we just skipped this “love holiday” all together in favor of those out-of-the-blue tokens of love, but my husband says he would feel like the worst partner ever if he did that.

I was hoping to celebrate this Valentine’s Day pregnant, but that was just not in the cards for us this year. If you are pregnant and planning an evening of romance (or if you’re looking for ideas for your pregnant partner), there are some cute and fun ways to spend the evening.

Click through and see 10 cute Valentine’s Day date ideas:
