Pregnancy Pregnancy

Need some sciatica relief ideas, also another question!

 Ok so I am 34 weeks pregnant, and sciatica has gotten bad! Some days I cant even get out of bed, it takes a good 20 minutes. If I move the wrong way, I end up in excrutiating pain, and it just sucks rocks :P lol. I have a 19 month old to chase after!

I have been doing prenatal yoga, and I wear a maternity support belt. My insurace doesnt cover any kind of chiropracter that can do prenatal work.... what else can I do to get some relief?

Also, another question! My baby girl is very high up in my ribs (well, her feet and butt are, she is head down) I am getting this intense pain at the top of my stomach, right in the center in between my two rib cages, I am presuming from all the muscles being stretched? Is there anything I can do to get her to drop some, or to get some relief from that pain as well?

Thanks so much!!

I would pay out of pocket for a chiropracter personally. I mean it is THAT worth it!

It may be worth paying out of pocket for feeling normal again--

Can you get a personal referral for a chiro, maybe?
Or ask about sliding-scale fees.

HAHA!! Great advice! My Chiropracter was my saving grace, Its always something I suggest. Unfortunately not many people take the advice. Wish more would, I think statistically it would cut back dramatically on discomfort during pregnancy and labor length and discomfort as well. Chiropracters are AWESOME Haha!
