I'm in my 13 weeks n currently overseas as I've been working hard n feeling shoulder ache I went for a massage. The lady said foot massage is ok coz she will tell therapist to not rub too hard. Anyway this morning I had very very slight spotting very light brown. should I be alarmed?
It's better if you check with your gynae 4 a peace of mind.. For what I know n experience myself,foot n body massage will not lead to spottings unless the person applied too much force when massaging for you,almost did not have to use force also,just rub n sooth your foot acupuncture points will do.. It can also be caused by there r some toxins in your body which came out after the foot massage.. I've been doing foot reflexology n body massage from my 1st pregnancy till now my 2nd 3rd trimester.. never have such problems..Always feels alot better after the massage..
Hi zen Xuan
That's what my mum said some toxic came out that's y bit spotting came out. Anyway I feel better today n there is no more spotting.
I'm gng to bkk this weekend n really dying to get massage which should I avoid? Or just inform the ppl I'm pregnant?Thanks
you should let them know you r pregnant,they will avoid some spots that cannot be massaged n tell them dont use so much force..even when go for pedicure,they will massage your legs,let them know too.. I just did a foot reflexology from my mom today,feel so much better.. If you r afraid,maybe can try back massage,but you will need to lie on your sides cuz your tummy..
Thanks ladies I'm feeling better already n ready for my bkk trip! Will definitely do back massage lying on sideways.
yah,pregnant ladies need massages much more than usual.. i dont think i'll be able to survive thru pregnancy if i did not have my mom to massage for me now n then..
