After 3 months of hip pain that seems to be getting worse each night, I finally went to a chiropractor yesterday. I've never gone to one before and even though I'm not getting any work done until Monday, I was really impressed with all the technology available. I'm anxious to find out what all the scans reveal:)

Speaking of revealing, I almost died when I was asked to undress from the waist up and don a pale yellow gown. Let me rephrase that-- a pale yellow SEE THROUGH gown. There are pregnant parts of me that could probably show through a black wool coat at this point, let alone a pale yellow gown. Thank God the therapist was also pregnant. How embarrasing.

My pregnant coworker told me that she saw a chiropractor through her first 2 pregnancies, but not her third and she noticed a huge difference in labor. I'm really hoping this is the case:) Allign me, please!

Also, today is my 1 hour glucose test for gestational diabetes. I feel fine, so I'm not too concerned (not that I have any idea whether I'd not feel fine if I do have it) but I'm not really looking forward to drinking the yucky stuff for the test.

GL with your test! Go ahead and pass this one so you don't have to do the 3 hour one. (wink)

BIG fan of the Chiro during pregnancy. Granted, I was SO looking forward to post-baby to be adjusted. It then felt GLORIOUS!
