Do a 15-minute warm-up every hour. Extend your legs more often under the table to relax your muscles and “disperse” the blood in your veins. During pregnancy, the blood circulation in the lower part of the body slows down, because the growing uterus puts pressure on the pelvic organs and constricts the blood vessels.
If you spend most of the veins in a static position, the blood in the pelvis stagnates even more, causing blood circulation to slow down in the organs located in the abdominal cavity, including the uterus. In addition, a long stay in a sitting posture is fraught with constipation, hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
Your workplace should be illuminated with both natural and artificial light, so that if necessary you can alternate them, do not bend too close to the keyboard, monitor or paper text and do not overstrain the muscles of the back and neck. It is best to sit with your back to the window, covered with blinds, or to the left of it.
The table cover should be just below the waist line so that, looking at the computer screen, you do not have to spend several hours in a row with your head up. From this, at the end of the working day, she may well get sick.
Sitting on a chair, many sit on the sciatic tubercles, leaning back or forward or back. However, both positions overload the lumbosacral intervertebral disk, which can eventually flatten and squeeze the vessels and nerve roots located between the vertebrae.
Then the blood circulation between mother and baby is broken. To avoid this trouble, sit in a chair, straighten your back. In this case, the chest and pelvis should be located on the same vertical, and the hip joints – parallel to the knees (they should not be bent more than 90 °).
Let the feet stand on the floor, and it is better to separate the hips to the sides so that the stomach is comfortable.
While working on the keyboard, part of the hand from hand to elbow should lie on the table – so you don’t have to lean on your wrists and keep your hands on the weight. Try not to hit the keys. Typing, lightly touching them with loose fingers.
So you save yourself from unpleasant sensations in the hands associated with a nerve injury, passing in the “tunnel” of muscles and tendons.
