Massage Day

My mom and I decided to treat ourselves to a day at the spa today to celebrate both of our July b-days. We went to a spa in OKC and had a foot treatment and then a massage. Let me tell you how much Gil and I enjoyed all of this. It was a full 2 hours worth of treatments and we were in heaven! My body has been working hard to tote around these extra 30 pounds of "sexiness", and it felt so incredible to have someone work out the tissues formerly known as muscles.

My therapist was a 21-year-old who found pregnancy quite interesting (like a circus side-show)and had lots of questions about it. I thought it was cute and didn't mind answering them. Especially because I love to talk about my pregnancy and this sweet baby. To anyone who will listen. And sometimes people who don't want to hear about it...

Gil seemed to be really enjoying the whole thing and I was feeling sweet little rolling movements and gentle pushing inside until the scalp massage. Apparently, the little peanut just got too tired and relaxed to stay awake any longer.

Worst part of the whole experience was that I had to shave my legs for this which is now quite an acrobatic feat. It requires a lot of flexibility, several akward positions, and a touch of creative genius to get it accomplished. And even then, I usually cut myself a lot and miss spots that are impossible to get to. Most of it is done by blind touch, because I can't actually see if I've got everything or not. Let's not even talk about the bikini area at this point...


  1. You might want to think about the bikini area before you deliver!! Not that the doctor and nurses won't have other things on their mind when they're down there!

  2. Haha!!! I shaved my legs tonight and nearly killed us both! Those are the things that need to be in books - general hygiene in late third trimester! Massage sounds awesome!!!

  3. I went for massage yesterday too. *bliss* I could use the foot treatment, though. I have peeling old toe nail polish but I can't be bothered to deal with it. But you're making me thing that I maybe should, before this growing belly makes it impossible.

  4. Glad to hear you're enjoying these last few days of your pregnancy. (that's right, I said DAYS!) Can't wait to see you all again. and BTW, Happy belated BDay!
