Uncomfortable

Ladies, I'm feeling it now.

Have been sitting at my desk for too long and am aching, feel like I'm about to explode after having a tuna baguette 2 hours ago, and my back is killing me.

What exercises can I do whilst at my desk? I know I need to move around more..........

Jen

Make sure you walk about when you can, keep going to the loo or something. You must stretch yourself.

The only thing I can suggest at your desk is the foot movements like you do on the plane. Make sure you have proper lumbar support and get up and walk around when you can.

Thanks Vicki, I just get lazy and we are in the attic office and without a lift the stairs are killing me!

Must start to help myself out more and move around.

Jenny, walk to work, good posture, diet etc will help against most problems.
Try to keep those abs tucked in when you are sitting, standing walking etc. Back straight shoulders back. If you get enough excercise and build muscles then you can avoid most aches.

I'd recc a pg yoga class- they can teach you stretches to help with hips & back. the easiet one for your back is the cat stretch.

On the floor on all 4's & arch your back like a cat stretching & bring your head up at the same time to look forward. Drop your back gently & don't let it sag downwards & drop your head to rest your chin on your chest.

Your birthing ball is also great for hip pain & works your pelvic floor too, use it to sit watching tv & roll your hips while sat on it.

Wella - we live about 6 miles from work so that's out!!

Bagpuss - I think I just worry I will do it all wrong and do myself some damage. I'm very careful not to over-stretch these days. I need my ante-natal classes really.

I used to do loads of walking. I walk the dog quite a bit but not too far as I start to get out of breath and my bump starts to ache.

Good, just keep it up if possible. Sitting on ones arse for 40 weeks won't do anyone good!

Jen try your local NCT as they do classes designed for pg women (I did one & it was fab & you get to meet other pg ladies too). Even at those classes they tell you only to do what is comfortable.

Swimming is great for pain as you are virtually weightless in the water, try finding an aquanatal class in your area too.These sort of classes are specifically designed with pg women in mind & to minimise the chances of you doing any damage to yourself.
