Answer: Hello dear. Firstly the weight of the growing baby and uterus also puts pressure on the blood vessels and nerves in the pelvis and back. Posture changes. This may result in back pain or strain. Secondly the two sciatic nerves in your body run from the lower back to the feet. When an enlarged uterus puts pressure on the nerves, you can experience pain, numbness, or a tingling sensation in the buttocks, hips, and thighs. Another possible cause of hip pain during the second trimester is round ligament pain. Few tips for relief 1.) Practice good posture. As your baby grows, your center of gravity shifts forward 2.) Get the right gear. Wear low-heeled — not flat — shoes with good arch support 3.) Lift properly 4.) Sleep on your side 5.) Try heat, cold or massage 6.) Include physical activity in your daily routine Hope this helps.

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 if u want u can see your Dr. but its normal in general, as far as the leg cramps r concerned its because 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., keep wiggling the toes to help in good blood circulation, a light massage from knees to feet can help and above all keeping the body hydrated is also very important.. Hope this helps!

Question: I have so much pain in my back and legs what should I do???
Answer: Hello dear Back pain during pregnancy is a common complaint, and it's no wonder. You're gaining weight, your center of gravity changes, and your hormones are relaxing the ligaments in the joints of your pelvis. To get relief try these remedies: 1. Take rest as much as possible as strenuous physical activities will aggravate your pain. 2. Have warm water baths as they help in relaxing strained muscles and muscle pains. 3. Use a hot water bag or a cold pack to alleviate the pain. As your uterus expands it can put pressure on certain nerves, causing painful spasms in your legs also the pressure your growing belly puts on blood vessels in your legs can disrupt circulation and cause cramps. Here are some simple remedies that you can follow to prevent leg cramps. 1. Eat a healthy diet 2. A warm bath can relax you and remove pain in the calf area. 3. Do gentle exercise to help blood circulation. 4. Have your prenatal vitamins regularly. 5. Reduce the salt intake to prevent fluid retention in the body. 6. Stretch your calf muscle several times during the day to reduce cramps 7. You can massage the cramped muscles with ice or cold compress to reduce pain. 8. Have vitamin B supplements to reduce cramps.
