Pregnant? Know someone who is? Read on….
(Long Island, N.Y.) You’re finally just got over the shock, nausea, and your giddy about the fact that you don’t look fat–your showing! This is the time everything just kind of settles in nice. You’ve come to accept the fact that you’re never agree on a baby name–and reality is fast approaching: PARENTHOOD.
Now is the perfect time to head off on your babymoon. What’s a babymoon? The best way to describe it: Your last exit to free time. A fun getaway taken around the second trimester (when that glow and energy starts to kick in) to places that might not be too stroller-friendly. Babymoons are, well, very trendy these days. Taking one is great way to help pre-pamper the soon-to-be parents.
Some Solid Bonding.
You two lovebirds are going to need it. For new parents, when baby is “on board”, romance takes the back seat. There’s going to be tons of things vying for your attention. So, while you’re still on a first name basis, might want to book a special trip where you can focus on each other.

You know your best friend, the one you secretly told you were pregnant before anyone else?

In a recent study, 82% of women across the country said they wish they could spend more time with their girlfriends.
