My chiro

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.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. with all the Chiro work you’ve been doing, don’t just quit (the pain will come back), but seriously tell him that you need to cut your treatment plan back to bare min. being once every 10-14 days then every 2-3 weeks then once a month through preg. then in 3rd tri. you go back to once a week as the body changes so quickly then. I know if $$ taking, but am I ever glad to hear that you are really feeling the difference already. It’s awesome that you responded so quickly to it after the trouble you’ve been in the past. But try to cut it back until 3rd Tri. that seems to most important time for the body.

  2. I love reading this stuff!! I love knowing what goes on when you’re pregnant, because I have no idea, and I guess unless you ARE Pregnant and reading books, you just don’t know. And even then, I don’t know if they actually honestly tell you. So I love this! πŸ˜›

    • The thing is that pregnancy is SUCH an individul thing. The books will give you an oversight, but each pregnancy is differant and symptoms vary soooo widely. It’s crazy. Happy to hear you like hearing about my nipples and bowels haha.

  3. Shit… That sucks!
    I believe you can figure this out! Have faith in you…
