21st birthday... advice!

Hey ladies. I'm turning 21 tomorrow. I'm younger, I know, but I'm nervous about what to do tomorrow. I know that you can have fun without alcohol, but I'm just sort of bummed that I can't celebrate it the "normal" way. I'm so happy/blessed to be pregnant, but I just don't know what to do tomorrow! Any ideas???

  • A nice dinner with friends?  Maybe get yourself a virgin drink while you're there.  Basically do something to treat yourself.  You could also do a spa day (just stay away from the no-no's during pregnancy) or something too.

  • I'm not a drinker, so I don't really identify with this issue a whole lot. However, I do have great ideas... at least for boring ol' me... I don't like parties or crowds either. haha I would suggest going out with your DH or your best friends... go somewhere like the Melting Pot (expensive but fun and yummy) or to another restaurant you've always wanted to go to... go to a concert or a movie or a theater performance in your area. Go dancing with your DH/BF/SO... salsa is fun! Bring lots of water! If money is restrictive, go for a hike with your SO or best friends and enjoy the sunshine and blooming plant life! :)

    Happy birthday!

  • I celebrated my 21st birthday when I was pregnant with my son. There are lots of fun things to do. Just have a day for yourself doing things that you like...prenatal massage maybe? I know it can be hard to be different but you are right it is such a blessing! Enjoy.

  • Happy Birthday.  I was in the same boat as you with my first baby.  I was due in January and I turned 21 in October.  Since I was in my third trimester I did have 1 small glass of wine.  But being so early this time, I don't know if I would do the same thing.  The other thing that I did, since I was/am a drinker was that I planned a night to go out with a bunch of my friends to celebrate my 21st after I had my baby.  My mom watched her and I pumped and threw away the milk. 

     But have fun with your 21st, get a nice virgin drink and plan a night out with your friends for after the baby. 

  • Not sure where you are at but i LOVE piano bars! They are great entertainment and you don't need to have a drink because your not just sitting around with friends watching them drink you can enjoying the comedy and music.

  • I turn 21 end of May. I live in Detroit and most casinos around here you have to be 21 to get into including the restaurant. So on my 21st I plan on going to the buffet at the casino lol 
  • Eat your favorite meal and dessert!  Alcoholic beer does exist just in case you have a desire to drink a beer!!!

    I would treat myself to a spa day personally!

  • Happy Birthday! I second the mani/pedi idea (it is so relaxing). Maybe a nice dinner & a movie?

    IMO, you might have more fun without the possible hangover... you might end up vomiting, though hahaha... but that's not due to drinking. ;)

  • I will be turning 21 while pregnant as well ;] You aren't the youngest, for sure. I agree with some of the PP's, go out to dinner with your friends, just get virgin drinks ;]

  • I was very very pg (37 wks) on my 21st as well and fortunatly I lived in Nevada so DH took me to Reno and we went to a nice lunch and I drank a root beer from the bottle... lol then we went to the casino and gambled. but i suggest buying a bottle of whatever you like tomorrow and saving it for post pregnancy. that way you will still feel 21. hope i helped.

    Happy 21st birthday and just think next year could be just as fun as turning 21....

  • I wasn't even pregnant during my 21st birthday and I think I had one very small drink when we went out to dinner just because I could. I am not into drinking so my H and a few of our friends just went out to dinner and had a nice dinner. The only issue with the recommendation of the casino is that most casinos allow smoking and usually don't have that great of a ventilation system. I have been in a couple casinos and thought I was going to pass out from all the smoke. I am sure all that second hand smoke would not be good for you or the LO.
