Wear the right things
It is extremely important to wear comfortable clothing and shoes during pregnancy. By wearing heels, the weight is shifted forward, which can lead to discomfort and back pain. Avoid high heels and wear sports shoes or shoes to balance your body and prevent falls.
You should also wear comfortable jeans – a wide elastic band designed especially for pregnant girls. They go well with you and do not burden your back muscles.
You should be in good posture during pregnancy. If you make some changes to your posture, you can eliminate back pain during pregnancy. Doctors recommend keeping the weight on the heels. Keeping your feet too close may also put stress on your back and back pain.
Try to stay close to the seat edge while sitting, as you would on a gym ball. If you sit in this position, your stomach will hang, which is good for the baby. But make sure you do not sit long; If you sit for a long time, you can pull your lower back. Remember the posture to avoid back pain.
Massage the Pain Away
Place a heating pad on your back to relieve back pain. By applying heat to your back, you can quickly relieve stress. You can also use a warm towel to eliminate the pain. The massage is also good for relaxation, so you can opt for a professional prenatal massage.
Overweight causes our organs to contract, which can cause your ribcage to not move properly and cause back pain. In such a situation deep breathing techniques help. The slow, silent inhalation through the nose draws the breath into the chest and into the lower and middle back, releasing the tension in the muscles. Try deep breathing exercises to relieve back pain.

Do not forget to consult a doctor
If the pain lasts longer than two weeks, you must see a doctor. Severe pain during pregnancy can be a sign of premature birth or urinary tract infections. If vaginal bleeding, fever, or burning sensation occurs during urination, you should seek medical attention immediately for correct diagnosis.
