I saw the head midwife today at my appointment.
Everything is fine, it was GBS swab time, so as long as I was going to be half naked anyway, I asked her about pelviemetry. My last OB (the one with my son) kept harping on and on about how I have a "narrow pubic arch" and she was concerned about my ability to birth vaginally (hmmm...wonder why I ended up with a c-section?)
Anyway. I jsut wanted someone ELSE's opinion on it, so I asked her to let me know what she thought (not a cervical check). So, she did the manual pelviemetry and said that while I do have a slightly narrow pubic arch, my sacral promontory is nice and deep and it shouldnt e an issue (btw, that HURTS when they go that far in)
She DID say, though, that I have a LOT of pelvic tension and that she could feel some very tight muscles/tendons/ligaments and gave me some exercises to do and instructed me to hold my posture differently for the remainder of the pregnancy.
She also suggested that I see a DIFFERENT webster-trained chiro, as the one Im seeing really isnt doing Webster at all, so I made that appointment for Monday after work.
Has anybody else had this issue? Any suggestions on how to help the pelvis "relax"?
I've been trying to sit and stand the way she told me to and at yoga and in the pool, I concentrated on it, but I have no idea and when I put Brayden to bed tonight, I about died from the pelvic pain just from lying down/trying to get up (been having a hard time doing those 2 things and walking for the last couple of weeks).
