Oh man - after reading the post on PSD I thought, hey! I have ALL of those symptoms.

Went in yesterday. I was SO out of alignment that one leg was at least 1 inch longer than the other!

He fixed me, and cracked my neck too.

I feel great today. There is pelvic pressure now, but not excrutiating pain.

ok baby. You can come out now.

I'm glad you got some relief!! I saw the chiro earlier in my pregnancy for some back problems and it was absolute heaven. Good for you!

I was just going to post and ask how this has gone for other people. I've been to chiros for injuries, but not during pregnancy. I'm a little nervous, but I know this needs to happen so I can have an easier delivery. Wish me luck!

Woohoo Cheryl! You know what, I went to the chiro 8 days ago and since then I've actually felt physically better than I have since 28 weeks when I first noticed the PSD/sciatic pains. I was just too broke to go to the chiro until now but it was worth it!

If this baby isn't here next week I'll be tempted to go again as a reward for going past my due date and not going nuts.

I have an appointment with a new chiro (who specializes in pregnancy and does the Webster technique) on Monday! YAY!

Just got back from the chiro. She also specializes in pregnancy. I was a mess! It actually took 2 hours. But I do feel so much better. She showed me how if you have tension and adjustment problems on one side how it can make it so your uterus actually can't move very well and the baby can get stuck, which appears to be my problem. She also gave me some stretches to do. My pubic bone is still sore, but she said to ice it and it should be better.

I hope that does it for ya Kat! Yes, you may be sore for a bit but once that soreness wears off you'll be amazed at how much better you feel!
