You've heard of a honeymoon. Well, now, make room for the "babymoon." It's a new trend, common among first-time-parents-to-be, who see it as one of the last vacations they'll take before "baby makes three."

The term "babymoon," was coined by British author and childbirth educator Sheila Kitzinger, who defines it as the important time a family spends together alone during a baby's first few days of life.
Many couples take a "babymoon" during the second trimester (when the risk of miscarriage is lower). And travel experts say, Florida and the Caribbean are their destinations of choice.

Time on the beach, at a nice resort, being pampered before your belly and family expand... it sounds wonderful. Makes me wish I had taken a "babymoon" when I was pregnant with my daughter. However, if you don't have the money to take advantage of the "babymoon" packages offered by resorts and spas, but you still want "special time" with your spouse, consider a weekend trip close to home. After all, often it's not where you are, but whom you are with, that makes for a memorable trip.
