Question: I often have pain in my left side of lower back

Answer: Hi dear, As the pregnancy progresses ,you would experience lot of aches here and there. Nothing to panic much.these are all normal. Since the baby growth pushes most of your internal organs along with pelvic bones,various kinds of pain ranging from throbbing pain to pinching pain, streching pain. They are mostly normal. Increasing body weight stresses your back and also puts pressure on legs.you would experience back pain and leg cramps too.try to be active as much as possible.daily walks for atleast 20 min would be helpful.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
Answer: Don't worry as this is probably due to the expansion of the uterus with the growing baby. Have your calcium supplements daily, check your vit D3 levels and supplement if deficient. Have a nutritious balanced diet. If your pain is severe, you can try hot fomentation and local pain relief like volini spray or moov. Avoid constipation and straining at stools by having lots of water, pulpy fruits and vegetables. Hope this information is useful to you.
