@OrchideZ I hope everyone starts to feel better quickly, that is rough! Yeast is the worst, especially this close to the end of pregnancy! You have every right to complain.
I tried to post earlier today, but somehow my words were eaten!
Things are much better than they were for me. I had a few really tough days, where my pubic pain and lower back pain were so terrible that I just could not get comfortable in any position, and was only able to sleep for 2-3 hours per night. I went to my midwife appt on Thursday and just broke down crying, and they insisted I book a chiropractor appt with someone certified in the Webster Technique immediately...so, despite my worries about finances, I did it. I had my appointment first thing on Friday morning, and I really wish I would have done it months ago. The pain is not gone by any means, but it has been minimized to the point that I can walk, sleep and change positions without wincing, crying or taking as long. I have a Monday morning appointment scheduled as well....and they agreed to not charge the cancellation fee if I do end up in labor before then. My insurance does cover the sessions, but until my 2014 deductible is paid, I will be paying a co-pay. Definitely worth it, though. My midwife also said if I needed to have her reduce her fee in order to justify the expense, she would...but we are going to try to not go there. The chiropractor thinks I will definitely need physical therapy after the birth to deal with the pubic separation, which is a whole different expense I was hoping to not have to deal with...but now that I am not in as much pain, I think I just need to make it work so that I can function normally.
We are expecting yet another polar vortex this upcoming week, which I am not looking forward to! If I had my wishes, labor would happen tonight or tomorrow, before it gets too bad....but I am trying to prepare for anything. Definitely feeling like I don't have very much longer left from here....just can't wait to hold him, smell him and kiss him.
