:

i've had horrible back pain for the past couple of months but i just assumed that no chiropractor would accept medicaid, so i just dealt with it. i just called around and googled for a good hour or so and i found one that does! i have an appointment for 4:00 this afternoon! maybe we can get this baby to stop being posterior and i'll go into labor!
i'm so excited, i could dance around!

don't dance yet!! you'll hurt your self! course, doing it before your appt is better than after!

so totally awesome that you found a chiro! make sure he does some ligament work, that is what did the trick for turning my posterior baby.

That's awesome! The chiro has done wonders for my back pain. I had success turning the baby from posterior with acupuncture, but I'm not sure if you'll find one who accepts medicaid. It's worth checking into. And fwiw, my baby turned back posterior for part of labor, but moved back in time for delivery

it was AMAZING. seriously, if anyone has been considering going to one, i highly recommend it.
there was this waterbed thing that was only a waterbed where your back lays and then it was like a regular chiropractor table everywhere else. when you lay back on it and they turn it on it shoots really warm jets of water all over your back, massaging extremely efficiently. i loved it. i told the chiro that i loved it and he let me stay on it an extra 10 minutes! then he gave me a back massage, then he adjusted me. i left feeling like a seriously limp noodle, it was fantastic. my back doesn't hurt and my hips don't pop loudly when i walk! i'm so pleased. the baby feels like she's rotated into a much better position and her head is definitely lower!

awesome! are you going back? I think it's optimal to go 3x a week at first to keep the results good.
