Answer: 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.
Hip pain during pregnancy is a common symptom that you may experience. This discomfort is most often felt late in pregnancy, specifically during the third trimester. This occurs
because your body is preparing itself for labor. Soreness and pain are often felt the strongest on the side where the baby tends to lie in your uterus. Practicing exercises that
strengthen both the back muscles, as well as, your abdominal muscles will likely reduce hip pain.
1. One exercise that may provide relief is elevating your hips above chest level while lying on your back for a couple of minutes.
2.Taking a warm bath or applying warm compresses to the area can reduce pain.
As you get closer to your delivery date, make sure to sleep on your side and keep your legs and knees bent.
place a pillow or blanket at the small of your back and sleep leaning against it. This will reduce pressure on the hip you are sleeping on.
