The old year comes to its end and a new one is about to begin. Many of us would like to end the last evening of the year properly and celebrate New Year’s Eve. The New Year is particularly exciting for pregnant women, because their offspring will be born and the family expand. But what is the best way to celebrate this evening? Below you will find some tips for a successful New Year’s Eve.
New Year’s Eve Party in Your Home
Pregnancy can be stressful, especially in the last few months when your belly is getting bigger and bigger. Many activities are a bit more difficult during this time, and fatigue and back pain are not uncommon. So why put on even more stress? Invite friends or family over to your home and ask each guest to bring their own food or snacks. This saves you having to stand in the kitchen for a long time and you can still celebrate with your loved ones. If you are looking for healthy snacks that can also be enjoyed during pregnancy, reach for Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, sweet potato fries, guacamole with vegetable sticks or dates.
And even if you have to give up alcohol, that doesn’t mean that you can only drink water. Just mix a few mocktails for you and your guests. These are mixed dinks without alcohol. How about a delicious ginger mocktail or a refreshing strawberry mockail? If you want even more flair and fun on your New Year’s Eve, why not throw a themed party where your guests dress up according to a theme you choose.
You can also use New Year’s Eve for a fun baby shower. Invite friends and family. Everyone brings a little present for the baby and delicious snacks. Children will also have a lot of fun at a party like this. Unwrap the gifts together and organize fun party games. This is a great way to celebrate the arrival of your baby and also the new year.
Cozy Film Evening With Your Partner on New Year’s Eve
Would you rather spend New Year’s Eve quietly and undisturbed with your partner and enjoy the time together? Why not just organize an entertaining movie night in your own four walls and cuddle together on the sofa? Recommended films for expectant parents are, for example, Baby Boom, Knocked Up or Junior. Or you can simply choose a film of your choice.
Short Trip for Two
If you feel like a change of scenery, you could also take a short trip with your better half and spend New Year’s Eve somewhere else. If you don’t want to travel that far, a weekend away in the country or a nearby town you’ve always wanted to visit can be a nice change. After all, once the baby arrives, there is little time left for quiet moments as a couple. It can therefore be nice to spend the turn of the year as a couple and to strengthen yir relationship as a couple.
Letter to Your Unborn Child
If you’re feeling a bit sentimental this New Year’s Eve and wondering what the New Year will bring, how about recording your thoughts, hopes, and goals. Write a letter to your baby telling him all your wishes and dreams. Your offspring can read it later and you will have a nice memory at the same time.
Start a New Challenge
Do you have resolutions for the new year or would you like to realize a project before the baby is born? If you still have some time until birth, why not start a 30 day challenge? For example, you could read some books that have always interested you or try a new (pregnancy-friendly) workout.
Brunch on New Year’s Day
If the hustle and bustle of New Year’s Eve is too much for you and you would rather go to bed earlier, you could spend time with your loved one on New Year’s Day instead. Many restaurants offer a New Year’s brunch, where you can get delicious food. Alternatively, you can prepare a few things at home and enjoy them together with your guests.
