Answer: Hello dear. 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. The weight of your growing uterus can push on the sciatic nerve and cause pain to run down the back of your leg. It could also just be leg cramps or uterine fibroids, so please inform this to your gynecologist. You can relieve it to some extent by following the below steps. Stretch your calf muscles immediately by straightening your leg, heel first, and gently flexing your toes back toward your shins. (Don't point your toes while stretching. After you stretch, massage the muscle or warm it with a hot water bottle to relax the tissue. White discharge during pregnancy is due to the harmonal changes in the body which is quiet common. Here are a few tips that might help you to reduce white discharge : Maintain Cleanliness. Avoid Fried & Spicy Foods. Eat fresh foods. Wear cotton underwear. Wear Loose & Comfortable Clothes.
