    I can remember the last crazy New Year’s Eve I had. I was 25 (of course) and I hadn’t met my husband yet. Mexican food at 9 p.m., pink champagne at midnight, multiple bars, and the DD dropping the whole crew off around 4 a.m.

    It’s safe to say my life has changed dramatically in the past eight years.

    These days, our New Year’s Eve celebrations are much more laid back. When we rang in 2011, we had to take a nap first, setting the alarm for 10 till midnight and waking up our newborn to celebrate (and just why did we do that?) The last two were so memorable, I don’t even recall what we did, although I do believe it included pajamas and falling asleep soon after the ball dropped. 

    This year, I’m pregnant, so even if there were adult beverages to be imbibed — even if I wasn’t a 30-something married mom who would rather spend any given night in my pajamas than out at the swankiest party — a wild New Year’s Eve is not in the cards for me. That doesn’t mean pregnant ladies can’t have a rockin’ New Year’s Eve. Here are five fun ways to celebrate the new year without feeling left out (I can’t help you if you fall asleep in the middle of the party, though.)
