In order for the skin to suffer as little as possible, start caring for yourself as soon as you learn about your interesting position. Use a special cream that prevents the appearance of stretch marks, and regularly perform a simple set of exercises: it will prepare the muscles and skin for subsequent exertion.
Elastic muscles are easier to stretch and quickly return to their original state after childbirth.
Put feet at shoulder width, arms down, keep your back straight. Put your hands in the lock. While inhaling, stand on your toes, at the same time raising your hands up, tilt your head back and look at the linked hands.
Stay in this position for 10 seconds, breathe freely. So we stretch the rectus abdominis muscle, because it will have to take on the bulk of the load during a growing abdomen.
After 15 weeks of gestation, lift your arms only to shoulder level.
Stand on your knees, feet shoulder-width apart, back straight, arms down. Feet spread wider than shoulders.
While inhaling, raise your arms to the side and look forward. While exhaling, turn the torso to the left, lean back and, without squatting, grasp the right heel with your left hand.
Pull your right hand forward and escort it with a look. Stay in this position for 20 seconds, then return to the starting position. Change sides.
Now we stretch the oblique abdominal muscles, which will later serve as a bandage.
Get on your knees and get down on your forearms (elbows), look strictly down. While inhaling, draw a straight arm forward, while exhaling, return it to its original position.
Simultaneous stretching of the direct and oblique abdominal muscles will help relieve the lower back.
Lie on your stomach, while it allows it, stretch your arms forward, forehead, touch the floor. Breathe freely, with each breath stretch farther, increasing in length.
Stay in this position for at least 1 minute. Relaxed rectus abdominis muscle will be able to increase in length. And when the stomach grows up, calmly roll over onto your back and perform the same movement.
Lie on your back, legs bent at the knees apart. The arms on the floor are extended and also spread apart. Breathe freely and stay in this position for at least 30-40 seconds.
Stretching the oblique abdominal muscles in the supine position also helps with constipation.
