babymoon
 n.— «I have learned a brand new word—”babymoon.”…This is just like taking a honeymoon except you’re pregnant. So, in truth, this must be nothing at all like a honeymoon, however, the purpose is to have one last “hurrah” as a couple (whatever that may mean—a solid night’s sleep?) before baby arrives.…The originally coined term “babymooning” has an altogether different definition. The babymoon, as childbirth educator and author Sheila Kitzinger described, is the necessary uninterrupted time parents need to bond with their new baby the first days after birth, sans well-intentioned visitors.» —“Lewis: You may be entitled to a babymoon” by Lisa Lewis Athens Banner-Herald (Ga.) Dec. 26, 2004.
