Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

yes!  I know it may seem weird, but is it a pressure or, a stabbing pain... either way, to relieve pressure, get into the pushing position... I took the back off an office chair and straddled between the arms with a pillow behind my back, and sat down... relieved a little bit of pressure, then I dropped the chair as far as it would go to the floor.  In that position, it relieved so much pressure... I had to work that way for 3 months, but it worked!!!  One more idea, and please be careful, and have someone close by if you try this... "hang" yourself from a bar by your arms... stretch out your back, relax, but very slowly, some women have slipped discs out of place trying this... BE CAREFUL!!!
