    How many of you are massaging your perineum? And what with?

    Do you think I've left it too late with only 10 days to go?

    I've got short fingers, wouldn't work, LOL - not like I'd try anyway, I don't fancy sticking anything in there at the moment.

    lol, is baby oil ok then? I was told it had to be an oil that you can also eat, like olive oil or walnut oil or similar

    I assumed you could use baby oil! Maybe I'm wrong?

    ROTFL :rotfl: Chin rest? Where on earth is that? I thought the perineum was the bit of skin between front and back exits. Starting to question it myself now!!!

    I did mine on Monday and didn't last night, but will again tonight. Tbh, Monday was a half arsed :roll: attempt. I'd read 2 mins and it was a stretch doing it for a few seconds! I said to OH I was about to do it as had a bit of olive oil in a dish, and he thought I'd asked him to do it. Lol. He said he wouldn't if I had asked him! Charming!

    I'm more concerned about my lack of pelvic floor exercises :shock: I've been really bad. I've not had any leakages...yet, but that doesn't really mean much does it.

    I had a go at this in the bath last night, but I just couldn't reach properly, also my finger nails are too long, so not very comfortable! It felt really weird though. Will have to ask OH to have a go with the olive oil, but I'm not sure I'm going to like it!

    I tried to explain it to my oh and he looked a bit grossed out, so i dont think i will ask him!

    My finger nails were too long as well, I cut them all short last night, I figure its better for the baby if they are short anyway

    If you havent had any leakages thus far then i reakon your pelvic floor is probably pretty strong anyway! I was having a nightmare from about 10 weeks every time i sneezed! But have worked them into submission with just a few a day x
