Anyone doing anything special for themselves for their due date?

I kind of want to do something just for me for my due date. H is working and I'm on mat leave and have been cooped up in the house since Sunday with a nasty cold so I want to get out and do something. I was thinking maybe a massage since my insurance covers it anyways, but anyone else doing anything fun? I've already got a pedicure done. Maybe I'm the only one doing something special but since I'm quite convinced this baby isn't coming anytime soon so why not spoil myself haha.

Ideas?

    I had a prenatal massage a few weeks ago and it was heavenly.  I highly suggest it!

  • I'd get the massage and go have a nice lunch. Then you and H should go out too, maybe to a movie and nice dinner.  It maybe a little while before you get to do that again!  Enjoy!

  • I'm going to go back and get my nails done a few days before the baby comes. I went last week and did it and it was so relaxing.

  • I'm getting my eyebrows and nails done this weekend! RCS is Monday!
  • Maybe a mani and pedi and then a nice dinner with DH.

    I'll be getting an induction on my due date if he's not here yet. Definitely not my idea of fun! :-P

    If I get to that point, I'm definitely planning on something fun the day before. I'll probably have an acupuncture session in a last ditch attempt to start without drugs, and then maybe a spa pedicure, and lunch at our fave restaurant with my husband and mom. 
  • I'm popping bottles.

     

    ....just kiddingHuh? lol

    No but seriously, I am treating myself to a glass of red wine.

    Definitely going for a mani/pedi next week.

    I'm having a girls night dinner tonight with some friends. And DH and I are going to go to FogoDeChao for dinner one night next week for some 'us' time.

    MMM, Fogo!!!!!

  • I won't make it to my actual due date as my induction is scheduled for this Sunday, but I am planning on celebrating being off bed rest Sunday before we head to the hospital. We plan to go to our favorite place for breakfast where I will eat a lot and then go for mani/pedis.

  • I am getting my toes done after my 37 week appointment, so I would probably get them done again at 40 weeks.  Then take DD to get ice cream because according to her big sister books, big sisters can eat "pizza and apples and ice cream" and new babies can't.  And definitely hit the 10am yoga class without worrying about work.

    I had this planned last time.  ;) However we had to cancel our reservation when my water broke the night before.  Hope it works out for you.

  • I have a CS on this coming Monday, I'm leaving work at noon on Friday, a maid is coming to clean the house, I plan to finish last min stuff in the nursery, Saturday grocery shopping, mani/pedi and watch some movies and recorded shows with DH at home, Sunday brunch with friends and massage (making appointment for DH and I, he needs to relax, too).
  • I'm going to get my hair cut, pedicure, and no-chip manicure on my first day off of work. Figure it'll be a while before I can get that all done again!
  • I figured I won't be able to go to a movie or theater performance for awhile, and when I do in the future they will probably be of the kid variety. So I'm trying to get my fill of that!
  • I've been having prenatal massages and I love them. I happily snore away during them because she's so good!

    I got a prenatal massage last Friday and it was awesome! I highly recommend it. I am getting a hair cut Saturday and I am hoping to go for a mani/pedi sometime next week.

    If I went to Fogo while pregnant, I'd feel like I wasn't getting my money's worth.  There isn't enough room inside me to eat all of that delicious meat.  :)

  • definitely mani/pedi and nice dinner with DH if I make it to the date.  Maybe even take the day off of work!  I love giving myself a holiday every now and then.

  • My due date is still weeks away, however, I know that you've had a rough road. Getting to full term was an accomplishment and now getting to your due date is "the icing on the cake".

     I think you should do something awesome!!

  • I've started getting pedicures and prenatal massages. Also, this can be an early FFFC but if LO stays breech and we have a planned c/s I'm getting a blowout the morning of. I figure I won't be able to do my hair for a few days and blowouts seem to last forever. Those are my 'for me' indulgences.
