Thought I would post about this because I felt like a fool when I was told that you aren't really allowed to have a massage or facial in your first trimester! Anyway, I was so looking forward to it on Friday because I've been very anxious waiting for my first scan and when I got there she asked me to fill paperwork out and it asks you if you are pregnant. So of course I ticked "yes" because I don't want them to use anything on me that might put things at risk. Anyway, then the beautician comes back in and says she is really sorry but she can't do any massage or facial in the first trimester because it apparently stimulates the immune system which isn't good for you.
So.. sigh.. went home without having a treatment at all and felt pretty stupid for not knowing that.
Another interesting experience was that the beautician herself admitted she was about to have IVF. She is the first person I have met in real life that I've known is having fertility treatment. It was kind of nice to know I'm not the only one going through it (although I know I have all your virtual peeps to talk about it with).
Only 5 days until my scan now. Feels like forever.
