I've had good massage things!
Last night my hips were hurting so I got Dusty to massage me. It's funny because it's something I think would help a lot of you, but I get bashful about sharing ;) If I do and you get your partners to do it, you will end up having to put out but maaaaaan. It's so helpful! (Deep massage around your ischium - the bones you sit on. Charmingly positioned on your knees, butt up high ;)) I said I wanted him to do it every night and he just said, sure, but I'll have to put out. As if he's not the one always turning ME down :P
And then today I got to go in to get a Mayan Abdominal Massage! SO GOOD! She has taken the extra pregnancy class, which I have not yet. I must. I do most of it, but she knew some nice little tricks. Man. The belly work was great, but I already did most of it so my uterus was already nicely centered and not sitting too low. But the hip work! *swoon* Heh. She did ischium work as well, but different angle! ;)
My neck and chest remain crazy tight and I haven't given a massage for awhile where I had full sensation in my right hand. Actually, I'm not completely sure I've had an -hour- where I had full sensation in my right hand.. She did a lot of work there but it's never enough. I wrote a note to the chiropractor I work for Monday saying we need to have a meeting and talk about my leaving. My arms hurt. They're getting congested because of the bad nerve and blood flow. Sometimes I wake up at 4 and 5 in the morning hurting so bad that I have to get up and walk until things loosen up enough to get flow - can't do it laying down. So leaving there will have me doing about 6 fewer hours a week. That should help. Very sad, though. I completely adore my clients there and everyone who works with me is awesome. I don't feel I have a choice.
And Saturday! Saturday I'm going to my old massage school where they're teaching pregnancy massage so I'll be a practice body and get a free 90 minute massage! Deal! :D
I cannot imagine getting through all of this without massage and chiropractic. My main issue is my arms, but I keep the rest happy with the massage. My arms.. I think that I might try to find a way to detach them at night and maybe duct tape them back on in the morning...
Also, I made chocolate pie. Chocolate pie is awesome. Chocolate pudding is just as awesome and a lot less fuss, though, so I think I'll stick to that :P
