Well, not this lady. I had booked a Groupon Couple's Massage last night and was rejected when I showed up and indicated on the info form that I was PG. They won't do work until after the 1st trimester, because it is such a "delicate" time. Did some research and apparently that is a common practice, though considered pretty outdated and unfounded. Really just wanted my back worked on, and I don't really understand how that would present a risk. Must have been a lawsuit many years ago, so now everyone needs to cover their a$$.
Big bummer and waste of time for DH and I as well as the therapists who lost a session.

@niknak1208 how did they do your massage at 39w? Were you on your back? Side? Just wondering about a comfy position.
Would love to try something but wondering if I should maybe save it for after baby instead if it's not as thorough as a typical massage... I usually have them work my shoulders and back which obv would not happen this time...
