I am thinking about planning a little trip with my husband before the baby comes. What are some ideas for us to do that is still safe for me and the baby?

Try going to a spa/resort! That would be so much fun, and you won't have to worry about doing anything too crazy while you are pregnant.

I didn't even think about planning a vacation... A spa would be so nice! Maybe even a cute date night if you don't want to stay the night anywhere

This is such a good idea! Once the baby comes, you won't want to leave the child behind for quite some time!

This is a nice idea I wish I have thought about this before.

Such an awesome idea. I wish we all could do this. Be ourselves before we get very something about ourself. When my son was born I swear everything changed. My perspective and all.

Spa is always a great idea, but if you like the peaceful outdoors, a nice cabin (close to a hospital just in case) can be really relaxing to just sit on the front porch and enjoy the view. There are a lot of really nice ones that can accommodate pregnant needs and still be close to town, it just depends on your budget, because the really nice ones with a view can get pricey, but so worth it!

I took a small stay-cation before I was due.  I rented a beach front hotel for the weekend and it was great.  I did nothing but read, write and enjoy the view.  It was really relaxing and very much needed.

I agree with the spa/resort idea! That way you can both relax before the baby comes and it's also safe for the baby.

 wow, that sounds amazing to do.  What a great idea, I wish I could of done that prior to given birth.  Camping sounds nice to do as well but would of been afraid to depart away from home.

A bed and breakfast would be nice too...if you don't have any issues with specific foods! lol...nice, quiet, low key, peaceful...I wish I would have thought of that!

I agree with the bed and breakfast. Those are so much fun and relaxing/romantic. I think you both would have a really good time.

Depending on where you live there are a lot of options! If you live close to mountains you could go stay in a nice cabin for a few days. Or if you are closer to the beach that is always a great getaway.

We took a 12 day road trip from FL all the way to niagara falls new york. we stopped in the Carolinas, Washing DC, Manhattan,Philadelphia, Virginia, Tennesse. it was a great way to spend time with my husband and daughter before we added a new member to the family. im really glad we did it since now 90% of the time is dedicated to the baby.

We're planning on taking a trip to a spa resort for some massages and pampering. Really dreading the 800 potty breaks on the way but I can't wait for the massages! I recommend somewhere that you can unplug from the rest of the world at. The resort we're looking at is up in the mountains. It'll be beautiful around Christmas when we head up. Can't wait!

We went to Ocean City, MD when I was around 12 weeks and are planning to go to Nashville for a babymoon towards the end of November. I always wanted to go and figured what the hay. We're doing some exploring and eating some good barbecue hopefully.

Loving the bed and breakfast idea! Maybe I can woo my husband into 1 more trip before she's here!

Jennifer posted this 15 October 2018

These are all such great suggestions!  I love the idea of a B&B or a spa getaway.  I have so many friends that have told me that the last time they got away alone with their husbands was the "babymoon!"

I don't know how far along you are, but I would take the chance to fly anywhere one last time before because flying with kids is a whole different ballgame

Now that it's the off-season we're renting a condo down the shore for cheap. Nothing crazy - just a weekend. But it'll be a nice trip. If you can, squeeze in lots of little fun weekend trips. They're way cheaper than one long week or two and you get to do more stuff as a couple before the baby is here. So far we've spent a weekend in Baltimore, Atlantic City, Hershey, and soon Ocean City, MD.

We usually stick to little fun getaways that are within a day's drive. I like bed and breakfasts as well as cabins. We try to not go too rural though just to be safe. I did fly to Disney with my kids when I was 12 weeks along. BIG mistake. Nothing worse than Disney in the summer while pregnant. Bonehead move on my part.

I believe is a great idea, with a new baby on the way you will have very little time for your husband once baby is here so its really the time to take advantage a bond a little more.  

Dominique posted this 17 October 2018

A nice spa getaway or a cabin retreat sounds perfect and relaxing before having the baby. Clear your mind and take all the mental and physical stress away!

Michelle posted this 17 October 2018

I love the idea of a getaway! I'll have to give that a try while I still have some time.

I always thought spa resorts were a great idea for a weekend away. Nothing like a massage and relaxation!

Planning a little baby moon/get-a-away for both of you guys to relax and enjoy each other company with no distractions. You could also ask your partner if their is something they'd like to do so they feel special since the majority of your attention will be on the baby soon. 

Jessica posted this 26 October 2018

I think this is a great idea.  Especially somewhere relaxing and where you can spend quality time with your SO.

Hiking without a stroller or wearing an infant I miss those days!

You could do a little trip across the south if you aren't too far away! There are so many cute little bed and breakfasts down there with awesome food! My husband and I just got back from visiting in-laws up in Vermont. Not exactly relaxing, but the scenery is beautiful up there this time of year. 

Jenna posted this 02 November 2018

That is definitely a must do for my husband and I.  We work opposite hours so we are going to need it before the baby comes.  For us, we are in Texas so we are going to go to the hill country.  But going just downtown for a couple days was an option, bed and breakfast, sight see somewhere near you.

Cabin, B&B, or resort/spa getaways; they’re, fun, relaxing, and mostly inexpensive!

Ann posted this 02 November 2018

You could rent out a small cabin. This time of year (depending where you live) the foliage would be beautiful and cuddling up in front of a fire would be so relaxing. 

Mollie posted this 02 November 2018

Fabulous idea!  Definitely take the time to get away with your husband and relax and enjoy him before life gets crazy!   A spa weekend is a good idea but do something that both of you enjoy! 

Torin posted this 06 November 2018

We took a trip about a month ago and it was fabulous!  We went to Santa Barbara, CA and just enjoyed the ocean, beautiful weather and the spa at our resort.  It was a nice and relaxing get away with my husband and I'm so glad we did it. 

Hana posted this 07 November 2018

Fabulous idea here!  We did it with our first one and plan on doing it again with our second.  One just the two of us and then one with our first born.  We live near the mountains and plan on going to our favorite cabin!

We have a mini-vacay planned around my 30 week mark and I'm so excited. It's nothing huge, but we're headed to a shore house for the weekend. It's off-season so they're super affordable right now. I can't wait.

This is a great idea! We didn't get the chance to have a babymoon and my daughter was a few years old before we took another trip I know it can depend on how far along you are but the spa trip sounds AMAZING. Some of my friends have done a cruise but I know you have to be early in your pregnancy. I think it is after week 25 a lot of cruise lines won't let you on without a dr's note.

Loooove a good beach getaway anytime of the year!

Going on vacation before baby is such a great idea! Spend as much quality time as you can because once baby comes you will feel like you don't have time or a break for anything. The spa sounds so good!
