So I went to the chiropractor today. There is nothing wrong with my alignment, nothing wrong with my tailbone, my ligaments are nice and loose...no apparent reason for the posterior pelvic pain, and no apparent reason why the baby keeps turning between posterior and transverse, and is NEVER anterior. (By transverse, I mean facing my side, not a transverse lie, which would be if he were completely sideways. He is head-down at least.) I did have one vertebra in my mid-back that was WAY out of whack; so I'm glad that I went, since now it feels much more possible to sit up straight, and I will most likely continue to go, because it is worth it to me to make sure that everything stays aligned, but...no relief from the pain. *sigh* Maybe I should go get a massage. I'm pretty sure it costs about the same.
I believe that women's lib means I can live however I choose - even if that means staying at home, baking cookies from scratch and knitting baby booties all the livelong day. I believe that discriminating against anyone based on their color is racism - even if they're white. I believe that the bad auditions on American Idol are the end result of twenty years of focusing on self esteem - "you are perfect no matter what" - piled on top of a century of growing up consuming music rather than making it together as a family. I believe the children are our future. I believe in miracles. I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.
