hahaha. He rolls me onto my back while he holds my legs together at the knees. -- he hooks his arm behind my knees.
Then he pulls in his direction - so, straight away from my body (he's at the foot of the bed).
I need a picture. It's definitely not frisky. ha!
Another thing that helps when I'm shifting positions is contracting my abdominals. For me, it's specifically my left side, because that side is much weaker and looser. I have to really consciously NOT arch my back - which is my natural response to the pain, but actually makes it worse.
My chiropractor worked with me for probably 30 minutes to figure out what sorts of things would relieve my pain and let me get in and out of bed without screaming.
Good thing it was the end of the day, because I was literally breaking out with screams and yelps and crying (that day, the pain was the worst it has been this pregnancy)
