One of the things I look forward to these days is the massage I get every few weeks.
As you are aware, we used to get massages before as well, particularly aromatherapy massage and it was our treat as a couple but getting a massage while you are pregnant is a completely a different story.
I never knew that pregnancy would make me feel so tired and it being peak summer right now, the weather is not helping either. I know that when you are pregnant, your body temperature is already a bit higher than normal, so the added heat from the outside is bound to make you feel even more uncomfortable. Sometimes I wish I had thought about these things beforehand but I guess it is too late now 🙂 . I still have the rest of the summer before thinking of cooler weather.
I now have swollen feet most of the time (the fact that I am out and about on my feet a lot is not helping) and I am not sure I will see my normal feet anytime soon.
So I highly recommend massage during pregnancy, just make sure you go to the authorise places where they know what they are doing.
All good places will ask you about your medical and health conditions before they start. Our body is changing a considerable amount in order to carry and accommodate our growing baby. Make sure you mention about even a slight discomfort you have so they make sure you are safe.
I often go to the same place and ask for medium pressure massage on the rest of my body and hard on my feet. If it is too much, I will let them know.
And the feeling I get after 60 minutes massage is priceless.
Please let me know if there are other things I could do to be more comfortable during my journey.
