I am 26 weeks pregnant. Last week my husband and I went shopping
for baby clothes. We shopped for a few hours and I got a little
tired. My husband suggestted that we went to Brookstone to sit
on the massage chairs for a while, which was soemthing we do
whenever we go to the mall. It felt good. However, that night
after we went home, I felt this tightening in my uterus. It
wasn't painful, but I started to get worried if the vibration
from the massage chair was too much for the baby? Could it have
harmed it in any way? Or it's just me thinking too much?
Thanks for any input.
This sounds like Braxton Hicks contractions, and most women experience this. This is your body's way of getting ready for the real thing. You may notice that your uterus gets quite hard as well, and its normal. Often even sex/orgasm can trigger these as well, and they may come more often as you approach your due date.  Your baby is well protected in there, very doubtful a massage chair could do any harm, walking up and down stairs gives more of a jolt than that.
