I visited my chiro every 8 weeks for all three of my pregnancy's, his adjusting table pulls apart where you belly is so when your bigger it doesnt get any pressure on it, i dont know why they would press near your belly, i would give the chiro a call and ask what they did and why they did it.
When I told my chiropractor I was pregnant he immediately stopped side-twisting adjustments, and has only adjusted me through my back on the table (which separates to allow for the baby bump - the only time I can "lay" on my stomach!).
Regardless of being pregnant though, anytime my husband and I would be adjusted our chiro would (when we had been particularly difficult to adjust - usually due to being left too long between treatments) say to call him if we experienced any pain or discomfort that didn't go away within a day or so, and he would see us again (I'm guessing free of charge; we've never had to do it). For that reason I would call your chiro and enquire about the adjustment - it just doesn't sound right to me. My concern of you calling your midwife or doctor would be that so many healthcare professionals don't consider alternative therapies like accupuncture and chiropractic treatments as legitimate and therefore are biased against them from the word go, telling people not to use them - ever.
Having said that though, if you don't feel like you've got a satisfactory response out of your chiropractor when you call, you do have a couple of choices in my opinion: (one) call your midwife or doctor, or (two) find another chiropractor and/or stop seeing the one you are currently.
