i cant remember the name, they seem 2 b the latest craze. one has opened up locally (we live almost in the middle of nowhere so its quite exciting), is it ok 2 have one whilst pregnant? just unsure as im not sure what the risks of spread of disease r. thanks
When I asked I was told the fishy part was no problem whatsoever. Just if they do a foot massage with lotions after to be sure to let them know how pregnant you are as it will affect what they use and the pressure points they avoid.
I had one a week ago. They're completely safe, only thing I found is that my feet were quite swollen afterwards- hot day and feet dangling in water. The company said it was no more unsafe than going to a public swimming pool.
Really glad to hear it is safe. Just found I was pregnant and was looking at my feet at the time - they need dealing with in an urgent way! What lotions should be avoided? Is it okay to get a foot rub off my other my half? Please say yes as I don't want to deprive him of a bit of hard work!
Perfectly ok Debbie!! in fact....i would tell him it's compulsory!
My feet never been bad but since put that bit more weight in in last weeks, heels have started to harden and the fish r great for that!
There are a fair few oils to avoid? To be honest most of these warnings are just being careful but I would just have baby oil to the ready instead! I carried a small bottle with me in Thailand so I could still indulge in the massages!
Too right drs can wait! Our local one is called dr fish...so that counts as helpful medicine, right?
I do hope u have briefed dh on other compulsory things like drinks service, his housework duties....it's a little known fact that hoovering, dusting, Lauren, ironing, generally lifting a finger around house, cooking......all VERY dangerous in pregnancy so it's best you put your feet up and avoid at all costs...
I agree... he will soon be doing it all. I have a question though. We have friends up this weekend and it's really early days, don't want to tell them but they will be expecting me to drink! Any suggestions - I mean obviously I won't be drinking.
or for toothache? save sharing your waterworks as a reason? There are some nasty reactions you can have with booze and antibiotics for your gums (erm not that I drank against Drs advice on them once....ho hum)
I was in the early days over Xmas and Im not an alcy but me not having a drink was very obvious! Got away with it most of the time
They may guess but if you over excuse yourself they will def guess! So try to wave it off as easily as poss! Unless you will be serving yourself in which case say you cant drink much due to antibiotics but pour yourself a few Rose wines (Schloer or however you spell it is the same colour! Just make sure you do have some rose wine to offer your guest! Or they do a white wine coloured one...not a fan of that one mind!)
I have been to the fishy foot spa thingys a few times (twice whilst prego) but don't really feel like they do an awful lot. I went to a chiropodist at the weekend, however, and my feet feel tonnes better (with the heat they were getting very achey and I can't reach past my bump these days to sort out hard skin myself). Not much more expensive than the foot spa and loads better value for money in my opinion
