Did you pamper yourself and all before the big day?

My feet are so swelled up and i'm miserable and someone suggested going and getting my toes done that it would relax me and that getting my feet rubbed and all would feel good. just wondering how many got pampered before the big (D) day and what did you have done?

  • I got a manicure and pedicure before my baby shower...I was probably like 35 weeks. The pedicure definitely felt good that's for sure. My feet were disgustingly swollen and it did help a little bit. They have to be careful though because there is supposedly a pressure point in your ankle or foot, I can't remember, that can cause you to start having contractions.

  • I had a pedicure done before I REALLY started swelling and I LOVED it! What the PP said is true about the pressure point. Also, if they rub your calves too strongly it can help induce too. So maybe you might want to go in the day before your due and just let them have at it! LOL!

  • Nope I did the dishes and cleaned the house had a panic attack cried my guts out and couldnt poop the day i was induced...... I really recommend pooping before they start giving you drugs. Trying to do that while contracting is very uncomfortable....
