babymoon
 n.— «AT 20 weeks pregnant, Courtney Monardo, a 40-year-old processor for a mortgage company in Scottsdale, Ariz., was—to quote Madeleine Kahn in “Blazing Saddles”—“so tired.”…First on the agenda was an in-room ice cream sundae. Next, a couples’ massage. Then a shopping trip for baby clothes, a room-service dinner ordered from the 24-hour cravings menu and a movie. The next morning included breakfast in bed, a round of golf and a pedicure. The appeal of this brief but indulgent experience—known as a babymoon in travel industry parlance—is pure escape.» —“Babymoon: Getting Away, While There Are Just Two of You” by Hilary Howard New York Times May 13, 2007.
