I've hit my first oh moment of pregnancy rules. I had a deep-tissue massage scheduled for today to address a yoga injury/irritation in my shoulder. I just read this morning -- what the hey, I'll do I search... -- that deep tissue massages are not recommended for the first trimester, even if not on the legs or abdomen. I'm waiting to hear back from the masseuse. I think I'd better start studying for these coming months.

What other surprises should I be on the look-out for?

I have never heard of that before...of course I don't get massages though...LOL. The only things I know you are supposed to avoid or limit in the 1st tri are caffeine, raw meats, non pasteurized dairy foods, raw eggs, raw shellfish or seafood and deli meats. I don't think you are supposed to start a new physical exercise routine in 1st tri. You are not supposed to go scuba diving either it can cause gas bubbles in the babies circulatory system. I can't think of anything else right now...

Massages are ano no for the first trimester but no worries you can get one in your second and third... It'll come fast I get massages once a month bc my husband got me s membership last year and I can't seem to give it up lol.... And it is a bummer but I keep focusing on how this time will fly by!

I didn't know that you couldn't get a massage! Of course, I've never had a professional massage anyway, but still. lol

Once you hit your fourth month, no more lying flat on your back or on your belly.
No intense cardio.....keep your heartrate under 140 bpm
No waterslides or amusement part rides.
No jacuzzis or hot tubs.
Nothing that could result in a fall , such as skiing, skating, climbing..... (for me that would mean no moving period. I am such a klutz!)

No changing kitty litter. I forgot until DH reminded me that that was his job again, lol. Of course I kind of see this as a perk of being pregnant, lol.

OK, I think I have most of these things down. I'm not looking forward to getting less coordinated though. But keep them coming.

I had been doing hot yoga up until the POAS day, so now I have to shift over to a slow morning jog instead. I was unaware of the whole temperature/dehydration issues of pregnancy until very recently as well.
