Things Couples Must do Before Having a Baby

1. Go on a backpacking trip

Backpacking can not only be difficult but can be close to impossible with a baby around. Backpacking is something that every couple must do as it brings them closer and lets them have a lot of fun together, exploring new places and meeting new people. Travelling to an exotic place on a shoe string budget where your days are not planned is a definite must before you have a baby.

2. Indulge in some adventure sports

You cannot do some sports, especially adventure sports when you are pregnant and if you are a couple who do things like this together, you should definitely try this. You are not going to get the time or the energy to this at least till your baby grows into a toddler.

3. Have loads of sex

It is not to say that you will not or cannot have sex when you are pregnant, but it definitely is going to be a little awkward. You will have less sex once you get pregnant either because of physical or emotional reasons. And it certainly will take a backseat once the baby comes out. Try to get as much as sex possible before you plan to have a baby. It will be loads of fun and will also bring you much closer to each other.

4. Go to the movies and hit as many bars as possible

Pregnancy will give you a lot of cravings as well as nausea over things you previously liked. You definitely should not be in a bar when you are pregnant; if you want to have a good time, hit as many bars as possible. Drink and dance to your heart’s content because you wouldn’t be doing this as a couple for at least two years. You can forget taking your baby to a movie, you will also not have much fun leaving the kid behind when you watch a movie, so get as many movies as possible before you get pregnant.

5. Try to get as much as alone time as possible

With a pregnancy there is no telling what the hormones are going to do to a woman or what it is going to turn her into. She might start hating the very sight of the husband or would want to be left alone. This is perfectly possible and to make sure you do not get distant, try to get as much as alone time possible before the pregnancy.
