Did I say I wasn't smart?

Why yes, yes I did.

I still want my last post to stand, as I really want the second half of my post to continue to be read by anyone checking in on my blog from the weekend. (I love my outrageous analogies.) But I do have a few updates to tell the world.

The first is about how I continued to be not smart this weekend. Oh. My. God. So dumb. So I was getting a fucking fantabulous massage. Simply wonderful. I've never gotten a massage on the weekend, always at the end of the workday, and it proved to be a good choice. Not a choice I can continue to make, as my massage therapist usually only works the weekdays, but I had to cancel Friday's massage and he was cool and came in just for me today. Due to not having anyone before or after me, he lingered a bit on some areas I was enjoying and we chatted very casually.

When it was over, he left the room for me to get dressed and I definitely took my time. Instead of rushing to get dressed, I spent some time gathering myself. I stood up and stretched a bit. I brushed out my hair. I put on a bit of makeup. All before even getting dressed. Then I put on my bra, shirt, panties. As I pulled my maternity pants on and lifted the big "secret belly" panel over my largeness, I felt it. Omg. My back. My back!!

"Kyle!" I screamed and he came immediately in the room. My back hurt. No joking here at all. He started feeling around and I told him my right side felt ~so~ different from my left side. He said "Do you want to know why?" I nodded with actual tears running down my face. He says "because the left side is normal and the right side is all fucked up." It seems I threw out my back putting on my pants. The muscle from the middle of my back running up to my shoulder was solid as cement, so hard he couldn't even feel my spine through it. He laid be back down and worked on it for a good 30 minutes before it was loose enough for me to be able to breathe and drive home.

So yeah, I'm smart. Smart enough to completely ruin a 90 minute massage by putting on my pants. Hey, at least I did it in a place where someone was there to help me.

I also updated "those" pictures. Both links. But beware, I'm getting too lazy to put on pants in the pictures behind the stick figure, so just know that if you click, you are will see me in my underwear. Which, of course, is showing nothing more than what you'd see if you ran into me at the beach, as my bikinis are smaller, but I still wanted to "warn" you.

Okay, umm. Ouch? That sounds painful. I guess you shouldn't wear pants anymore, then, huh? :)

I have a dodgy neck. My sympathies on your poor back,

Jen said...

Ouch! Well like you said at least you were some place where somebody could help you.

I'm going for a massage later this week, I can't wait!

Nikki said...

Ouch ouch ouch! Sounds painful, but glad you were somewhere where you could get help immediately. Hope you're feeling better now!

Jenera said...

I'm in the bad back stage right now. Any movement can cause shooting pains to go up and down my back. Squatting down, bending over then standing up, anything. Luckily it hasn't been as bad as yours sounds.

Thank goodness for being at the perfect place for it to happen, lol.

soapchick said...

Oh man that totally sucks. I hope it feels better soon. Maybe it's a good excuse for another massage!

Oh and I love the pretty bra on your 30 week pic! Sorry if that is inappropriate to say!

jenn said...

damn woman. I'm glad you were at least still there to get help! But that sucks!

I ruined my first real massage by getting my first full leg & bikini wax right after it. Not really my doing, but that's how it got scheduled. This sounds much much worse!

Tricia said...

OUchy! That sucks. Feel better.

KatieM said...

You look fantabulous....and that bra completely rocks! =)

Oh, and as for the back...OUCH! But yes, at least you were at a place you could get it easily fixed!

calliope said...

dude! that sucks. Thank goodness it happened at the right place- but sucks ass that it happened at all. Hope you are feeling better today.

Hollie said...

Sorry about the back pain. That sounds really bad.

Mo and Will said...

Wait a minute - you're blaming yourself for not putting your pants on properly? what are you supposed to do, run around naked?!

Take care of yourself - and cut yourself a break, ok?

OMG--holy ow! I'm glad you have an awesome masseuse though.

You are really popping there! I love seeing your belly pics and am looking forward to the next one because it looks like you had a huge jump there with your last two pregnancies.

Krista said...

Love that bra!

Amanda said...

I'd say you were a genius for throwing your back out while you were still there. Stupid would have been doing it getting out of your car at home. :-)

I hope the back issue doesn't return!

Io said...

Owww. Glad you were in the right place I guess. Yikes.
