Answer: Hi Dear! Pregnancy causes a lot of stretching and loosening of muscle, the growing uterus pushes al other internal organs hence a little bit of pain here and there is normal, as far as the leg cramps r concerned its becausr of the back, the back supports the weight of the body and due to growing weight the lower back as well as leg keeps cramping or aching, there is not much you can do about except put a warm bag at the lower back, walk daily, correcting postures, sitting with a lot of back support like sitting pillows or cushions etc. and as far as food is concerned pls try to start day with apples/coconut water/ soaked almonds etc. Have iron, magnesium, folic acid rich diet which should in your daily food consisting vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, chicken, fish, mutton, eggs everything all regular food no need to start anything special.. U can have one cup of coffee or black tea a day . Nd as much of fennel ,chamomile, fruit , caffeine less tea. Take ample rest and drink lots nd lots of water. U can go fr walks if u want nd only if ur gynae permits. Hope you find this helpful..

Answer: Shoulder pain is one of the commonest complaints of pregnant women. Around 40% of pregnant women suffer from the discomfort. However,not all of them need medical attention.Shoulder pain during early pregnancy is normal.Though it is natural to neglect shoulder pain as one among the many normal discomforts in pregnancy. Always consult your doctor when you have shoulder pain thoroughly troubling you.Even if it is a left shoulder pain during pregnancy.However,you can try these home remedies to find a temporary relief. Stretch your body and do some exercises. You could try yoga or even swim to tone your body. But make sure you inform the instructor that you are pregnant beforehand. Stick to low-impact exercises. Indulge yourself in a mild aromatherapy spa to relax your entire body. A gentle massage can also help. But you might not be able to always approach a professional masseur. Then you can ask your partner to chip in. But make sure the strokes are gentle without disrupting the acupuncture points. Follow these simple guidelines to keep shoulder pain at bay in pregnancy. 1. Maintain an upright posture while standing. Do not slouch. 2. Avoid standing for too long in a single position. 3. While standing, use the left and right foot alternately. 4. Take the aid of more pillows to keep your thighs in a parallel position. 5. Reduce carrying weight. 6. Wear comfortable footwear that evenly spreads the weight. 7. Change your bras and get professionally fitted ones. Wear appropriate maternity bras with wide straps that will reduce the weight of the enlarging breasts on the spine. Back pain is often caused by pregnancy hormones relaxing your ligaments, the tough tissues that connect your joints. The weight you naturally gain and changes to your posture as your bump grows can add to the problem. You're most likely to feel pain in your lower back. But you may also feel discomfort in your upper back, shoulders, between your breasts, and in your ribcage. Sitting or standing in one position for a long time may make your back pain worse. If you exercise regularly, it's fine to continue, but listen to your body. Gentle exercise, such as walking and stretching, may relieve your stiffness and pain. But don't force yourself if you feel pain, as you could strain your ligaments further. Gentle massage can ease backache, but the effects tend to be temporary. To support your back and prevent pain, fold a thick towel lengthwise and place it perpendicular to your body at the point on your waist or you can use pregnancy pillow.

Question: I am getting severe back pain what should I do
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help. During pregnancy, your body makes a hormone called relaxin that allows ligaments in the pelvic area to relax and the joints to become looser in preparation for the birth process. The same hormone can cause ligaments that support the spine to loosen, leading to instability and pain. Here are a few tips that might relieve you from back pain : Ice or heat packs. Sleep on your left side, and use a support pillow under your knees. If these dosent help, please consult your gynecologist for further treatment. Take care.
