    I have my massage at 6:45 tonight...I go for an hour. It will be nice to relax and be pampered for a bit. No offense to DH either but I bet it will be a lot better than the massages he gives..lol. Will let you know how it goes:hugs:

    So I had mymassage last night..it was absolute heaven. She gave me mostly a relaxation massage as she does not recommend getting deep tissue massages until really late in your pregnancy...certain muscles can induce contractions in the uterus. I laid on each side and she rub me down with warm stones...omg it felt good!!!. She also rubbed ml calves and feet. She then got me to lay on my back...still safe this early on..and rubbed all along my neck, my sholders and arms, up into my scalp and all around my forhead down into my jaw. She used pillows between my legs when I was laying on my side and under my knees when I was laying on my back. She gave me some great tips about sitting and sleeping positions as well as some simple stretches to do. I highly recommend anyone pregnant to get this done and it is very important to make sure the massage therapist specializes in pregnancy massage...it is very different from a regular massage. Dim lights, aroma therapy ocean waves music and a fab massage...what a way to spend an hour. I'm going back in 3 weeks. Give it a try ladies!!:hugs:
