Whether it’s your first baby or your fourth, you belly is bulging and life is about to change. Big time. And while taking one last big exotic trip may sound like a good idea around month five, the closer you get to your due date, the three big Cs are what make for the very best babymoon: Close, convenient and CHILL. We’ve rounded up seven winning spots in the Bay that are sure to satisfy and expecting couple’s cravings. Click through to see them all.

For An Active Staycation: Sausalito

This sweet city just over the Golden Gate Bridge is a world away while being ridiculously close for city dwellers. In as little as 15 minutes you are in a little bayside hamlet complete with old school ice cream parlors, quirky houseboats, and luxurious hotels with gorgeous views. We recommend booking a room at the Inn Above Tides, where absolutely every room opens to deck perched over the Bay. A short walk (like 1-2 blocks) will get you exquisite Mexican food at Copita, generous scoops of ice cream at Lapperts, and steaming bold of pasta at Poggio. Feeling sporty? Rent a kayak from Sea Trek and float around in the Bay. Ask the front desk about arranging for a prenatal massage therapist to come set up right inside your spacious room.
