Pregnancy is a special condition for any woman. When you carry your baby under your heart, the load on your body doubles. It happens that there are various pains, often backache, especially the lumbar region. And most often, pain occurs in the second half of pregnancy.
Why does the loin hurt?
The cause of lower back pain is the displacement of the center of gravity. The abdomen is growing every day, weight is added, and the woman adapts to this state by bending the lumbar spine. Those who had a curvature of the spine before pregnancy had more difficulty, they had more pain.
Another reason for such pain – the habit of wearing heels. Many women wear spikes even during pregnancy. Of course, you always want to look attractive, but it seems to me that when you are expecting a baby, it is much more important to pay attention to the convenience of shoes.
Lower back pain and kidney function
Sometimes back pains cause diseases of the genitourinary system. If there are kidney problems, then back pain also occurs. In addition to back pain, kidney disease can be signaled by fever, edema, and poor urinalysis. And, it is desirable to immediately consult a doctor.
I was often tormented by my back precisely because of kidney problems. The doctor prescribed a treatment, and I drank herbal teas.
How to deal with pain?
If pain is not associated with diseases, but is caused by just loads, then it can be dealt with. The simplest is to use special insoles. They help to distribute the load on the spine correctly, prevent
Helps to cope with back pain and a special bandage. It can be worn from 17-18 weeks of pregnancy. They are different: prenatal, postpartum and universal. I bought a bandage 2 in 1, it can be used after childbirth. Very handy and useful thing!
I want to say that the bandage can be worn only with the correct position of the fetus! If the child is sitting incorrectly in the stomach, there is a chance that he will want to turn over, and the bandage will not allow it.
So that your back does not hurt, try to relax more.
Simple exercises will also help reduce pain. Sit on the floor, lean back and hands up against the floor, the body should be at an angle of 40-45 degrees. Legs need to bend at the knees, and feet pressed to the floor.
Now bend the body forward, while the lower back should bend. In this position, you need to hold for a few seconds, repeat the exercise 5-6 times.
Another exercise. Lying on your back, try as much as possible to press your lower back to the floor. Hold for a few seconds, then relax and repeat the exercise several times.
I often just lay down on the floor, legs bent at the knees, and my feet pressed to the floor. So lay for 20-30 minutes, the pain passed.
