#1: Traditional Valentine

We all can remember getting those cute little cards with bears or little animals on them and the clever sayings on the back.

While your baby won’t be able to appreciate it for a while, a Valentine dedicated to them while they were still just a bun in the oven will certainly be a fun item to pull out of the baby box years down the road.

#2: Valentine Letter

Little Valentine cards are adorable. But, you may want to take it a step further and write your baby a sweet letter.

You can include all the special things that are happening right now, what Baby currently looks like and what is developing in their tiny body.

Most importantly, you can include how much they’re loved and how they’re already Mama’s Valentine.

#3: Valentine Teddy Bear

Those darling little Teddies out there are a great gift for children and adults alike.

I’m sure we’ve all got at least one or two put away somewhere, right? It’s connected to a particularly special Valentine’s Day, usually involving someone special.

You can do this for your baby-to-be, too! A little, soft bear with a note attached that includes the date, how far along you are in the pregnancy, and a little note for baby is a great way to commemorate the date.

#4: Valentine’s Bump Picture

If there’s ever anything we use for collages and memories, it’s bump pictures! You can incorporate Valentine’s Day into this easily.

All you need is a cute outfit, some Valentine themed props, and someone who can take a decent photo. Don’t forget to save one for baby, too!

#5: Ultrasound Valentine

This one is a little unique, but a great way to remember how your baby looked on Valentine’s Day.

Get a recent ultrasound photo and frame it in a handmade Valentine’s Day frame. Sayings like, “My Tiny Valentine,” or “Roses are red, violets are blue, Happy Valentines Day, Baby–we can’t wait to meet you!” Can be painted on the frame.

(Hint: This one would make a cute pregnancy announcement, too!)

#2: Date Night

No doubt Dad is probably working hard in preparation for baby. Maybe life is just carrying on in its normal routine.

Regardless, there are changes happening every day, and a big change is on its way! Take some time to be together.

It’s easy in all the preparation to shove the normal Valentine’s Day traditions aside–but remember (especially if this is your first baby) this is the last Valentine’s Day as you are.

Starting next year, there’s a new addition. So don’t let this one pass you by without doing something!

#3: Run Away

I was five months pregnant when Valentine’s Day came. It was our first baby, and we knew things would forever be different.

So we ran away.

We took off for the coast, found a little place to stay near the water, and wandered all over Laguna.

It was a simple trip–we were planning our baby’s arrival so we were on a budget–but it was relaxing and much needed.

You don’t necessarily have to spend the night somewhere, but taking off for the day can be a great way to spend some quality time together.

#4: Memory Lane by Candlelight

This is a great way to “run away” without going anywhere.

Enjoy a nice dinner at home. Light some candles. Play your special song. Go back through all the pictures of when you met, the progression of your relationship, engagement and wedding photos.

Not only is this awesome for the two of you as a couple, but it will also refresh the joy and excitement for your arriving baby and the next chapter.

#5: Private Letter

We love to share ourselves with the world and our loved ones. But some things are just too personal to be shared.

Some of our deepest feelings and inner changes cannot fully be described to another human being in the same way that we feel them. These precious feelings are noteworthy.

Perhaps if someone else were to read about your feeling and that inner, instinctive change that takes place, they could grasp some of how you feel. But for you, reading about it would bring back the memories and feelings like a tidal wave.

What are your thoughts and feelings this Valentine’s Day? What’s going on inside of your body, your mind, your heart? What are some of the quiet thoughts that you’ve had during this time?

Write them down, put them somewhere private, and hold on to those precious, one-of-a-kind memories.

I hope you enjoy your Valentine’s Day, and however you are able, make the most of it. It doesn’t need to be fancy or extravagant. In fact, it’s the little things that often mean the most to us.
