Now that I am on the latter part of my 5th month, I am starting to feel the downside of being pregnant — the backache 😦
It feels so ngawit, that even if I lie down on my side, I can still feel the stiffness. It’s so uncomfortable. Because of this, my quest for a prenatal massage starts… I am going to compile my search here and try to blog about my experience when I find time to visit any one of them. That picture above looks so soothing. I’d give anything to feel that right now.
