SHOP THE POST:
Well, hello third trimester! With this new trimester has come a whole new set of challenges and the most annoying one yet, back pain. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s going to get more difficult but so far so good. Since I’ve been going to prenatal yoga on Sunday’s I’ve noticed quite a few of the exercises have helped ease my discomfort so I have been trying to repeat them at home on my own.
It’s helped relieve a ton of the pain and in all honestly I need to keep it up after delivery because back pain has always been an annoyance for me, especially with work. I thought I would share the 5 moves I’ve been using most frequently and please feel free to share any tips or trick you may have with me. I’m also thinking it’s time for that prenatal massage!
Make sure to do at least 10-15 reps of each exercise and I usually try to go two rounds each day. It’s great to help you stretch out in the morning and even wakes me up a little bit. I know I have mentioned these before but I seriously could not live without these maternity leggings! I ordered them in the full length style too and love how thick yet breathable they are. I plan on wearing them a lot post delivery too!
Happy stretching and hope it helps ease a bit of your pain too!
