So, my bday is on the 15th. Mike asked me what I wanted. At the time, I didn't know. Thennnn....I had to take off my Uggs for my appt today lol! My feet are HORRIBLE! So, I said pedicure! Now, I am thinking maybe a massage.
Has anyone ever had a massage while pregnant? I am a BIG baby and do not like it hard. I love me a pedicure though
I think both sound amazinggggggg. Help me pick!

I'd do a pedi. I love to get a massage, but sometimes it leaves me sore. I am trying to decide if I'm going to use my gift certificate to the salon I got for my bday on a pedi or a prenatal massage. I'm thinking pedi.

I'd go massage! It's rare for me to get a massage, so that'd be a nice treat. Save the pedicures for towards the end of pregnancy. Foot stimulation and pretty toes will make for a happy mommy when the days seem to drag the last couple of weeks.

I've never had a real massage, because it would weird me out to be mostly naked with some stranger touching me. I have personal space issues big time! So...I'd go with the pedi, but I'm obviously a bit of a freak.

I'd say pedicure as well. Like others I would not like the idea of someone in my personal space, lol.

Something I do enjoy is a trip to the chiropractor. The one I see does not bend and twist you. He uses a thing like a rubber ended spring gun to put you spine back in line, with your clothes on, lol. But what I like is that he has this probe that uses a magnetic field on any sore joints or areas. I always feel awesome when I leave. One time my youngest DD got an ear ache.Her dr said to bring her in. I had an appt first and took her with me. He used the probe and rubbed behind her ears. By the time we got to the dr the ear infection was no more.

I'd go massage. I'm too ticklish to let people touch my feet. My mother in law tried to touch them to massage during labor and I about kicked her like a horse lol

My sis in law had one durin pregnancy and loved it. I dunno if you're sore or achy yet but I have hubby rub my back alot lately as I'm getting bigger.
So massage sounds like heaven to me.

I'd go with the massage too. They have them specially designed for pregnancy too.
Although I'd have him check, if you are going to a spa for the massage, they may have a combo deal with a pedi.

I love massages. I had one when I was pregnant with my son, around 30 weeks or so. I like them super hard, so I was a little annoyed because she was so gentle. But it sounds like it would be perfect for you if that's what you want to do They're super gentle when you're pregnant. I think it's because they are scared to put you into labor, lol.

I'd go for a pedi and make sure if you go for a massage the masseuse is an expert and prenatal massages .

I think I would go with the pedi. It is so relaxing and enjoyable in the moment, then you have the pretty feet to last a while

Do a whole spa day and get both!! If you do a massage make sure you go somewhere that does specific Prenatal massage, or whose massage therapists are trained in prenatal massage. I got massages all through my pregnancy with Kaiya. I have had 1 so far this pregnancy, but looking forward to another one very soon! A goo therapist will adjust the pressure to your liking and not bee too hard or too soft!

I am a huge fan of massage. I agree that you should go to a specially trained therapist but if you are having back or joint pain a massage will feel heavenly.
