Had an appt today for a waxing, facial and massage. Was told they could not do the facial and massage as I am only 5wks gone. Mentioned this during the waxing! I asked why and they said it had to do with becoming over stimulated?!? How is this possible? Surely I get over stimulated when I am exercising or doing other things! wink could someone please explain....

It's just bring over cautious as it's the first trimester. Massage stimulates the lymph flow & circulation. If anything was to happen after treatment then massage could be blamed as causing.
