I'll have to think about chiropractic. I've never gone and I'm not sure pregnancy would be the time to start if I'm not used to it. I haven't seen my acupuncturist in a couple of weeks, but I have an appointment this Thursday. Maybe she'll have a brilliant cure!
Has anyone found a particular stretch or exercise to be helpful?
It's due to the ligaments that hold your uterus in place stretching as your uterus grows and changes shape. Just watch how you're moving. If standing up really quickly hurts a lot, then don't do that. But as annoying as it is, it's just stretching. I don't think you can actually cause any damage.
And I would think that maybe increasing the amount that you exercise might help some, as moving your body might help stretch the ligaments out more, but again, I'm not educated in these matters, just what occurs to me.
Mandy, Mama to three wildfire girls and another little one on the way. Due 1/30/13
There are some different forms, and some don't do the "bone crunching" stuff, but I personally like that. I started at 9 weeks to help with morning sickness but had to stop recently because he is having a baby and is taking a few months off, but will call in September to start up again. Anyway, as long as you get one with experience with pregnant women, I am sure it won't be a problem to start if you have never gone before.
