As I go into the first week of my 3rd Trimester, I’m constantly reminded of this growing human in my belly. With the kicking and punching, its no surprise that I’m beginning to get many sleepless nights. But I think the worse (apart from heartburn) would be the backaches. This time, its nothing like the one I had in my first trimester. It aches even when I’m lying down and the more I lie down, the more painful it gets. I thought that my regular weight training of deadlifts would help strengthened my lower back but I suppose its not enough. So I started searching YouTube for alternative workouts, and I stumbled upon this.
It has helped me so far but just be sure not to do it on a hard surface. Lay a yoga mat or a towel on the floor before doing this. If there are other methods that could relief backache, do let me know in the comments. Would love to hear from you.
Until then, stay safe!
