Being pregnant can take a toll on your body. As the tiny human being inside of you grows, the pressure on your lumbar spine increases. This creates a ripple effect that can cause sciatic pain as well as shoulder and neck pain. (Remember! Everything in your body works as a unit.) Nevermind the headaches, fatigues and other miscellaneous aches. Following are a few tips to help you combat the aches and pains of pregnancy.
1. Yoga and Stretching:
Keeping your muscles limber and flexible is key to limiting the amount of pain you experience. Try these eight yoga poses for pregnant women. You may also look at these stretches for pregnant women. Want to get a little more in depth in your exercises? Try these!
2. Natural Pain Relief:
-Drinking more water while you’re pregnant may actually help you combat aches and pains. Yes, you’ll have to visit the restroom more often, but it will keep your body in much better working order.
-Prenatal massage is a viable option to both soothe aching muscles and combat stress.
-Sleep the right way! Use pillows to make sure that you’re sleeping in ways that keep your body structurally aligned. Good neck support is key and a full body pillow between the knees and to wrap your arms around can help keep your hips from becoming misaligned.
-While you’re at it, get plenty of rest. Even if you have to take a nap every day! Fatigue has a magical way of making your aches and pains worse. Let your body rest!
