Question
Answer: It is normal due to the growing uterus and hormonal surge. The uterine cavity occupies more room in the abdominal cavity, further pushing the stomach and creating heavyness at legs.You can try following tips - • Maintain good posture - Stand up straight and tall. When you stand, use a comfortably wide stance for the best support. If you must stand for long periods of time, rest one foot on a low step stool — and take time for frequent breaks. Good posture also means sitting with care. Choose a chair that supports your back, or place a small pillow behind your lower back. • Wear low-heeled — not flat — shoes with good arch support. • When lifting a small object, squat down and lift with your legs. Don't bend at the waist or lift with your back. It's also important to know your limits. Ask for help if you need it. • Sleep on your side, not your back. Keep one or both knees bent. Consider using pregnancy or support pillows between your bent knees, under your abdomen and behind your back. • Massage or the application of a heating pad or ice pack might relieve pain • You can also practice yoga

Answer: Hi! This is normal dear. Eat before two hrs of sleep. No spicy foods, no maida, no pizza, no burger. Only homemade light food at night time. U can take non citric fruits also. This is wat I was advised that time. Ice cream or milk apparently helps with heart burn. It's caused because of reflux as ur bump pushes the lungs and diaphragm a little upward. Try to lie down in bed with ur head raised preferably by keeping 2 extra pillows. Hope this helps!

Question: under stomach i am getting pain what is the reason
Answer: Hello dear this is normal don't worry Lower abdominal pain and cramping during pregnancy is termed as Round Ligament pain… A woman used to experience mild abdominal pain and discomfort through out the pregnancy time and there is nothing like to worry about as this abdominal cramping is normal. Abdominal pain during pregnancy can be just a sign that uterus is getting ready to carry a baby through the next nine months of pregnancy. Lower abdominal pain occasionally crop up during pregnancy because of uterus stretching, from constipation or from gas. During pregnancy, the uterus enlarges to provide accommodation to the growing fetus. This enhances the size and weight of the uterus. Increased weight and size puts pressure on the ligament that holds it further causing it to stretch. This condition leads to lower abdominal pain, cramping during pregnancy, which is also termed as Round Ligament pain. To get some relief, reduce your physical activity * To decrease pain reduce cramp-inducing positions * Comfortably resting can also relieve from pain * You can also take a warm bath to relax from lower stomach pain and cramps during pregnancy * Avoid turning sharply at the waist, if you are experiencing abdominal pain during pregnancy.

Question: Hi..i have legs pain nd back pain ...whts the cause of this pain ?
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help. The weight of your growing uterus can push on the sciatic nerve and cause pain to run down the back of your leg. You can relieve it to some extent by following the below steps. Stretch your calf muscles immediately by straightening your leg, heel first, and gently flexing your toes back toward your shins. (Don't point your toes while stretching. After you stretch, massage the muscle or warm it with a hot water bottle to relax the tissue. During pregnancy, your body makes a hormone called relaxin that allows ligaments in the pelvic area to relax and the joints to become looser in preparation for the birth process. The same hormone can cause ligaments that support the spine to loosen, leading to instability and pain. Here are a few tips that might relieve you from back pain : Ice or heat packs. Sleep on your left side, and use a support pillow under your knees. If these dosent help, please consult your gynecologist for further treatment. Hope this information was helpful.
