    I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble, but I did the massage thing from about 35 weeks onwards and i had a 2nd degree tear. So sometimes it doens't work, so you should be prepared for the worst. In saying that though, I never knew i teared, I had to ask if i did lol. Had to get 20 or so stitches, but i never felt myself tearing.

    Tegan I am glad to know that you couldn't actually feel the tearing. That has put my mind at ease a lot.
