Hi Ladies,
I am 10weeks pregnant now and I have a very hard time behind me!! So I thought it's the best time now to spoil myself with a relaxing babymoon-vacancy  biggrin.gif
Unfortunately my boyfriend is too busy to join me, so I have to do it by myself!!I already found some articles about babymoon-holidays online, but I can't find some proper offers!! Especially not for a single person  mellow.gif
Did someone of you already had a babymoon? Or do you know a special center, hotel or retreat which has got special offers for single pregnant ladies???
I would really appreciate to hear about your experiences or get some good tips of you!!
Thanks a lot!!

Myself, DP and my mother went for a 3 week camping trip in the Kimberley / Cape Leveque when I was about 14 weeks.  And it was awesome.

2nd trimester is a great time to go - you're hopefully over most of the morning sickness etc and should have some energy and not yet be too huge and awkward.

I don't know if you'll find a lot of specific babymoon offers but think about maybe flying to a different city, spending some time shopping etc and plan a day in a day spa - most cities will have some sort of pregnancy day spa.  Even just spending a few days in a nice hotel relaxing and hanging by the pool could be really nice.  Maybe even a yoga / relaxation type retreat??

I'm sure you're aware already that you won't have as much stamina as normal and that planning gourmet experiences is probably a bit of a waste!

Whatever you do I'm sure you'll love it.

It depends how "all out" you want to go. The Husband and I are about to head to Bali for 10 days of doing absolutely nothing (27wks), but it's also our belated honeymoon.
In researching our trip, there were quite a few hotels in Australia that offered packages including day spa treatments. One I remember standing out was Peppers somewhere in QLD, but it is at the upper end of the price range.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
