I have been to a chiro before last month, he has done amazing things for my back and I admit I feel great. Where my concern comes in here is that it’s so damn expensive. As much as I know he would help keep everything in order all the way through pregnancy, the bottom line is we don’t have the money. Period. I can’t "Just Find It"…I don’t have it. I have $500 a year in benefits for chiropractic care covered by my blue cross, 2 months into my treatments that is 80% gone, how am I supposed to keep seeing him for the next 7 months? Where would I find $200.00 a month, hello, I don’t have it.
It’s stresses me out a little to be honest, only because I am so terrified of the immobilizing pain I had with Evan for the last 2 months of pregnancy happening again. I can get free physio through the hospital again, but I never found that physio helped as much as the chiropractor does cause it’s not about muscles and movement, it’s about nerves and hip alignment. Oh well we will see. I know it seems I am thinking WAY ahead, but the thing is that my coverage is running out fast and I was debating quitting now and saving the remaining money for the end of pregnancy when I really need adjustments.
I know the chiro won’t understand this, well he will understand the financial, he has been VERY helpful there, typcially it’s $50 a visit, he has been giving me unlimited (10-12) treatments a month for $190, so I am getting a great break and the treatment is helping immensely, but I just don’t have the money at this stage, I need to be paying down bills before mat leave, not racking up more debt. Yet I know chiro is not just a quick fix, it’s an ongoing treatment process, this why I am so torn.
As for symptoms at this stage-6 weeks, my nipples are killer soar and feel like hot all the time. I am sleepy sleepy, but not sleeping well at night, still waking up at 4-4:30 every morning to pee and have a couple of crackers, I am constipated, which is very uncomfortable, going on average every 3 days, the nausea has become managable so long as I keep on top of eating, eating smaller meals every 2-3 hours, if I go more then 3 hour without food I get crazy hungry, my tummy starts growling like crazy, if I don’t eat then, by 4 hours the nausea returns.
That is all, no more news on that front.
