    I don't think it's meant to be sexy! It's a time to relax as a couple before the rollercoaster begins.. Eat and sleep mainly!

    We are planning a short holiday when I'll be 28 weeks, thinking Port Douglas or somewhere warm. Plan is to relax! I don't see it as a normal holiday, so for a change we are not going somewhere DH can surf. I see it as my special quality time with him where the focus is us spending a few days relaxing together. Having a baby (our first) is going to be a big change and I'm going to be at home all day 100% focused on our child so I would like to be pampered, enjoy some wonderful food and just chill out with no expectations. If anything else comes from that, it'll be because I'm relaxed and in the mood.

    I agree with the ladies above. I don't feel sexy at all at the moment. My poor husband... We can't afford much of a baby moon so I'm just concentrating on finding somewhere we can relax in the quiet and hope I get some mojo back by then.

    On another note, what are people's thoughts on spas while pregnant? I've read differing views. A spa would be sooo nice right now but I've been avoiding them.

    When I was pregnant with DD we went on a babymoon it was very relaxing and still to this day when I have a stressful day I think back at those blissful days at the beach.
    It's about relaxing and spending some quality alone time before both your lives are changed forever.

    First thing my doctor told me when I fell pregnant was no spas and hot tubs. The water is swirled around to keep the temp constantly high and your body can't self-regulate it's temperature because you can't sweat to cool down, so it's really best to avoid. First trimester is most dangerous as overheating can cause birth defects but hyperthermia is dangerous throughout. I still bath but don't allow myself to get too hot, good indicator is if your skin turns pink/red then is too hot.

    Also be cautious with massages, you should be going for a specialised pregnancy massage.

    No never once thought a babymoon was about having sexy time. To me it's more about relaxing and enjoying the time just the 2 of you
