According to my physical therapist, I have the hips of 'an old man'. This is a bit of a problem in general, but I think it will be an even bigger problem when I'm trying to squeeze out that baby. So I didn't argue one bit when I was told last week I should try to get a massage ASAP.
I had a massage on Saturday. It turns out this past week (the week before my due date) has been hard on my muscles - I think my joints are loosening but the muscles haven't caught on yet and are pulling everything every which way.
Well, the massage was great. I really enjoyed it, stumbled to my car afterwards in a post-massage daze, and then went home and spaced out for most of the afternoon. Unfortunately I woke up sore this morning, so it may have been a little too much. I have another massage scheduled for tomorrow, and I can't wait. This is definitely making my past due-date blues better. Although, I am secretly hoping the baby holds out until then so I can enjoy this next massage... can you hold your labor off just by sheer will? The Studly Hubby might be mad at me if I do, he's getting awfully excited. This morning he told me I was hogging the baby, and then made a big batch of cookies to see if it would entice the baby to come out. It didn't, but I sure enjoyed them!!
