Second to Third Trimester change

Weeks Twenty to Thirty Two.

You may be experiencing difficulty in your body adapting to “pregnancy posture”, resulting in pain.

The hormone relaxin, which is released in early pregnancy, may cause instability in the joints, making them more vulnerable to INJURY and STRESS.


The back exercises in this blog may help lessen or alleviate you pain. If back exercises do not help and you experience pain more than THREE TIMES PER WEEK or pain is DISTURBING YOUR SLEEP, then you should seek help from a specialized health professional as early as possible.


The earlier you receive treatment, the earlier it can be resolved or managed. If untreated, pain may continue and increase as your weight and size increase.

Take care.
