Swelling/word to the wise!!!
So, the past several days I was suffering from terrible swelling in my most sensitive areas...I get it mildly from hormones but this was SOMETHING ELSE. My midwife suggested a belly band to shift the baby up and off of pressing on veins and such, but that just didn't seem like it would do all that much given how internal everything still is at this point...Last night I was feeling super desperate and thought of lying in the polar bear position (face/shoulders down on the bed, butt in the air) for a while. OMG IT FIXED ME!!! I had to do it a couple of times before it "took" but it definitely got her to shift off of whatever she was smushing, because I felt better immediately and today the swelling is GONE. Hallelujah!
A friend had suggested chiro, and I think that was a good idea too, although now that it's not an issue anymore I think I'll wait a bit longer to start that, just to save money.
Anyway...if anybody is still dealing with swelling (I know some had mentioned it a while back)...TRY THAT.
