Question: Hi I am 39th weeks pregnant and having back n hip pain and also having constipation wat to do now?
Answer: Hello Dear
Hip pain is a normal pregnancy symptom that usually happen inwomen in the third trimester. You may have experienced hip discomfort in the second trimester, but it's usually more of a problem in the final weeks of pregnancy.
During pregnancy, your body releases an important hormone (called relaxin), which relaxes and softens all your joints and muscles.
Unfortunately, relaxin also increases your susceptibility to injury, and it results in hip pain for some women.
Physical changes in your body also contribute to the development of hip pain in pregnancy. The softening and shifting of your pelvic bones, paired with the pressure of carrying around a huge uterus, can lead to hip pain and discomfort in the third trimester.
There are a number of things you can do to try to minimize your hip pain and discomfort:-
Don't cross your legs when you sleep.
Rest when you can. Standing on your feet all day can really aggravate pregnancy-related hip pain.
Make sure that you sit down or rest as much as you can during the day.
Do yoga and light exercise to relief hip pain.
You can try some natural remedies for easing the bowel movements, before you go for some medication.
Lemon water: Squeeze half a lemon in a glass of lukewarm water and have this mixture every morning. This will help you have a smoother bowel movement.
Watermelon: This fruit is full of water and eating a lot of it helps manage bowel movements well.
Dry fruits: Eating dry fruits such as dates, raisins, and prunes helps treat constipation.
Yogurt: Yogurt is rich in probiotic bacteria that stimulate digestion and prevent gastrointestinal disorders.
