Chiropractor!!

  • I am 19 weeks and I love the chiropractor, they will have you lay down and look over alignment, adjust you either by hand or by machine, and they might put you on a traction table that rubs you out. Keep going back it helps get you labor ready and makes labor easier on you and the baby.

  • Thanks for the answers! I have been miserable for a couple months and decided I could at least try it out and see if I like it. I hope it works! I never thought pregnancy would be so hard on a body but man now I know.
