Question: I am 30 weeks pregnant..day by day it is getting difficult for me to sleep..as theres lot of pain in my entire pelvic area.. Tried every position to sleep..still no improvement. What to do
Answer: If your pelvis is aching, you're not alone. Up to 80 percent of pregnant women experience pelvic pain in that final trimester when stress on the pelvic region is especially intense. It’s even more noticeable once lightening occurs (when your baby drops into the pelvic area in preparation for labor, typically about two to four weeks before delivery if it's your first baby — though many women won't experience it until they're in the early phases of labor).
To avoid this you can use below tips, hope it can help you -
1. Do some pelvic exercises
2. Take warm water bath
3. Acupuncture is an increasingly popular way to alleviate all kinds of pregnancy ills, including pelvic pain.
4. Talk to your practitioner about pregnancy-safe pain relievers or muscle relaxants if the pain is severe
3. You can take a pillow in between your legs while sleeping for support and comfort
Question: I have pelvic pain both front and posterior, when sitting I feel pain in tail bone and pain in thighs and sometimes whole leg. feel pain in pelvic when walking or moving and doing any work. When I am lying on bed I feel pain in my front pelvic area. What could be the reason for such pain and its consistent since more than one month.?
Answer: A cramping sensation in the early weeks of pregnancy may be due to your expanding uterus. Watch for signs of vaginal bleeding if you’re feeling cramp-like pains. Call your doctor if you start spotting or bleeding.
Constipation can also cause feelings of pressure. As surging pregnancy hormones and an uptick in iron, wreak havoc on your digestive tract, your pelvic discomfort could be related to your need for relief.
If that’s the case, make sure you’re drinking lots of water and consuming plenty of fiber. Ask your doctor about pregnancy-safe stool softeners, too.
To immediately relieve the pressure, try lying down on your side and focusing on breathing. You can also try the following ideas.
Perform a few pelvic exercises, like pelvis tilts and rolls.
Try relaxing in a soothing bath with warm water (not hot). You can also stand in the shower and aim the water at your back.
Use a pregnancy support garment, also known as a belly sling. They’re designed to support your belly and offer relief to your hips, pelvis, and lower back.
Avoid sudden movements if possible. Try not to twist at the waist. Instead, work on turning your whole body.
Get a prenatal massage with a licensed therapist who specializes in treating pregnant women.
Try to sit down as much as you can.
Elevate your feet if possible.
If you worked out regularly before becoming pregnant, don’t stop. Modify as necessary, but keep exercising consistently. If you’re uncertain about how to modify your workouts, ask your doctor.
Hope, this was helpful to you.
