Go shopping early in the morning or afternoon so that the people around you are smaller. The lack of fresh air and stuffiness is not useful for you, besides this atmosphere does not have the best effect on the future baby.
Use a cart on wheels instead of a basket if you buy groceries. And do not carry gravity in one hand, because in this case, the load on the spine will be asymmetric, which can cause an overload of its muscles.
Putting products in the cart, control your back, do not round it or slouch. Try to hold objects with both hands.
In this position, firstly, they will seem easier, and secondly, you will get rid of the habit of leaning in one and the same direction. It is dangerous because the load from time to time falls only on one half of the back, because of which the muscles and ligaments of the spine can overgrow.
If you want to get the box from the top shelf, do not stretch up with one hand and do not rise on the socks, especially on one foot. The rise from this position upsets the balance that the expectant mother is already difficult to keep because of the growing belly.
And movements with one hand, as we remember, will only load one side of the back, from which it can begin to hurt. Rise up, substituting “step”, or ask the seller to get for you the necessary box.
When you pick up a box or bag, do not hold it on your outstretched arm in front of you. The closer to the body will be pressed the object, the less will be the load on your back, and your shoulders will not slouch.
This rule must be used at the moment when you transfer the bags of food into the car.
Going to shopping, wear comfortable shoes with heels no higher than 5 cm. This height will allow your feet to bear the long walking, reduce swelling by the end of the day, provide protection to the lower back.
The fact is that with an increase in heels, the center of gravity of the mother’s body shifts even more forward, increasing the deflection in the lower back that occurs during pregnancy and causing our back to tighten even more.
Walking through the supermarket and fitting room, more often look in the cafe to relax. It is useful to drink water, juice or a snack and give rest to your back and legs.
