Loose joints...

So, I went to the Chiropractor yesterday, and when he cracked my neck he said it cracked really well! He said it was like someone else's neck. Usually I have a very stiff neck that is hard to adjust, but it was perfect yesterday.

I was going to ask him if that was a pregnancy symptom, but we haven't told people yet, and my sister was in the next room, so it'll wait til next visit.

I know that joints around the pelvic area loosen during pregnancy, but is it true for all joints? Anyone else had a similar experience?

Yep. I have hypermobility syndrome and I'll be under consultant led care because pregnancy relaxes all the joints and it could cause me dislocations x

Yes, relaxin doesn't target any particular joint - everything gets looser.
