Take a pregnant momma to a movie ~ Almost a dad

Take a pregnant momma to a movie

A great way to entertain a pregnant woman is to take her on a movie date. It gets you out of the house and calling it a 'date' will make your partner feel appreciated. It serves not only as a fun outing, but the air conditioning is a great way for her to beat the heat during the summer months.

This is particularly important because pregnant women have a hard time regulating their body temperature and can easily overheat. Climate controlled theaters provide entertainment and help her and the little sprout maintain reasonable temperatures. Give her a pregnancy foot massage before the show and you'll be a saint in her eyes.

However, like any activity with a pregnancy, there are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Find a theater with comfortable seats.

2. Get a seat accessible to the bathroom.

3. She'll need snacks, so bring an extra $500.

4. Don't bring her to any tear-jerkers. Remember, she's hormonal and a normally weep-worthy film may turn her in to a blubbering mess. Avoid movies with births, weddings and puppies. My wife almost cried at the end of Live Free or Die Hard today, anything more would have pushed her over the edge. Bring some tissues just in case.

A caveat to our outing, the baby started to kick as Bruce Willis began dispensing his own brand knuckle-fed justice, which I found incredibly cool. I had earlier nicknamed him the kung-fu fetus based on movement at an ultrasound, this just cemented it.
