Bye Bye Pregnancy Back Pain in 15 Minutes

Busy while waiting for an overdue baby #3.
I was pregnant and having discomfort going from sitting to standing. I had to support myself and scoot to the edge of the seat to get up especially from low things like the couch. Yep, I was pregnant. I had to do a little waddle just to go from sitting to standing. Some people would say that this is just part of being pregnant. I say, I am too busy to deal with pregnancy crap like this! I learned a trick that made the discomfort go away in 15 minutes.

My third pregnancy was really rough on my body. I was non-stop carrying a toddler everywhere. Our toilets are in the basement and on the second floor so I was always carrying a kid up or down a set of stairs. I had to bend all sorts of ways to snap two kids into carseats. I was walking or doing yoga almost daily to keep myself limber so my body could adapt to the changes that were happening. 

Then it happened. I started having to stand up like a pregnant lady! Not me! I had to do the wiggle to the edge of the seat, brace myself on something and do a side-slide to get up. It was uncomfortable. This was extremely annoying and I am not one to get annoyed so I took action.

For the first time during a pregnancy, I went to a chiropractor. I went to a doctor who I knew and was pregnant with her second baby so I knew that she would understand. The moment that I laid down, the chiropractor pointed out that my hips were 2 inches out of alignment! It caused one leg to physically be 2 inches longer than the other. Of course I was having issues standing up.  Since I was pregnant and she couldn't just pop me back into place, she used a special massaging tool that massaged the bones and joints back to where they belonged. Instantly I felt normal (not pregnant). I went home and could sit and stand perfectly without support or scooting to the edge of the seat.

That's how I got sold on chiropractors and ditched my pregnancy pain!


  1. hmm, I never thought of visiting a chiropractor while pregnant, I'm going to have to keep this in mind when I hit my 3rd trimester. Thanks!

  2. Wow! I’m glad that a visit to the chiropractor improved your health. There might have been concerns about having your spine aligned when pregnant, though there have been many cases when pregnant women had a couple of chiropractic sessions and found that it was, indeed, safe. Of course, it would be better to consult your doctor first, like what you did.

  3. Amazing! I’m happy that the trip to the actual chiropractic specialist enhanced your wellbeing. Presently there has been issues regarding your backbone aimed whenever expecting, although there has been numerous instances whenever women that are pregnant experienced a few chiropractic periods as well as discovered it had been, certainly, secure. Obviously, it might be easier to seek advice from your physician very first, such as that which you do.

  4. The idea of pain during the delivery varies from women to women. Particularly, the first-time mothers want a proper counseling about good nutritious diet, physiology of labor pains and antenatal exercises. But, here in this article we shall only be dealing only with the hospitals for painless delivery in Hyderabad.

  5. Taking care of two toddlers while pregnant is such a laborious task, and it seems that you were the only one available to take care of them. Major props on that! On another note, it’s good to know that your treatment with the chiropractor got rid of your back pain completely. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Yes I also took my wife to a chiropractor during her pregnancy and she really benefited from it in the long term. She had severe back pain because her muscles were just not strong enough to support the weight. The doctor prescribed her with some pain relief but that is not so good for the baby. Luckily all went well.

  7. My wife was in the same situation, and we decided to try and see if the local chiropractor could help. She could barely sit in a chair without her back in severe pain. The day after our visit she was like a little kid. The pain was gone, she was walking better, and her general mood was completely opposite of last week.
