Stop pelvic pain during pregnancy!
Pregnancy take a real toll on mom's body causing expected and some unexpected pains that women have been told to dismiss as "normal" pains. As if "normal" means the pain or discomfort can't be stopped. Helping women fully enjoy their pregnancy is why I wanted to start this blog about my personal pregnancy experience. Yes, some (okay most) of the changes our bodies go through can cause pain or discomfort; however, there are ways to resolve or lessen these pregnancy pains.
I made it to 29 weeks! This is my second pregnancy, and luckily I've only had few days with an achy back or feet. I was very nauseous the first trimester but my second trimester was smooth sailings. Now that I've entered the third trimester I've started to feel my hip shift when I walk, stand up from a chair, or go up/ down my stairs.
Today, I want to talk about the sharp pelvic pain I feel when stand up after sitting for 30 minutes to 1 hour. I had to sit for an extended period of time the other day for my job in a standard office chair. When I stood up I felt a very intense sharp pain that was coming from the front of my pelvic bone. Simply standing up took my breath away. I was able to walk but with a notable limp. In the below video I talk the simple exercise I did to relieve this pelvic pain.
