I thought we might need a space to 'fess up to anything we might've done accidentally, irresponsibly, intentionally, etc that probably wasn't the smartest thing to do while pregnant. I'll go first...
To cut down on expenses, I've canceled my massage membership at a local massage spa. My last massage was scheduled for last night and I had already planned on having a hot stone massage before realizing I was pregnant. On my way there, I really didn't give it a thought ... probably because I've been looking forward to it for a while. I also didn't want to bother telling the spa that I was pregnant because they make you jump through hoops just to have a massage - plus I feel like they can barely touch you - and knowing it was my last one there ever, I figured ... why bother?
Anyway, the massage felt like heaven. Seriously! I've never been so relaxed. But it wasn't until after my massage when my therapist was handing me a glass of water and said something like 'be sure to drink plenty of water because this may have raised your body temperature' and it sunk in. Uh oh. What did I just do??
Of course, I freaked! I raced home and took my temp. It was normal (I run a sub-temp of about 97.8) but I just couldn't shake the idea that I had done some serious damage. Well, all the effects of a relaxing massage were completely erased at that point. I barely slept last night. I barely ate today. It was awful! I'm the worst at torturing myself with the what-ifs.
Add to that, that I didn't have any noticeable morning sickness today (probably because my stomach was tied up in knots?!) and I had lower back pain most of the day...
Finally after talking to my trusted team of midwives ... they talked me down off the cliff. And I was able to eat. And I was never so glad in all my life to feel morning sickness again this afternoon. Praise God for morning sickness! :)
Anyone else want to confess something stupid they did, too?
