Back pain

Beginner's yoga moves can be life-savers when it comes to back pain associated with pregnancy. One of the easiest and most beneficial moves is Child's Pose, which relieves tension in the lower back and encourages relaxation.

To give this move a try: kneel on a mat or soft carpet with your legs spread apart underneath you. Sit back on your heels and tuck your chin down into your chest. Extend your arms and bend forward as far as you comfortably can until your forehead, forearms and elbows can rest on the floor. Position your belly in between your legs (spread them wider if needed) and rest here for a minute. Ahhh. Ommm. Better?

Leg pain/cramping

If you get a cramp, stretch your calf muscles by straightening your leg, then gently flexing then pointing your toes to ease the cramp. It also may help to massage the cramp or walk around for a few minutes to loosen the cramp. 

If you experience leg cramping on a regular basis, alert your doctor right away. Constant muscle pain – as well as tenderness, swelling or redness in the leg – could be signs of a blood clot.

Swollen feet/ankles

Swelling of the feet and ankles is a common pregnancy symptom, but uncomfortable nonetheless. Try to elevate your feet as often as you can (even if you keep a small step-stool under your desk at work), and take short walking breaks from sitting or standing for long periods of time to prevent blood from collecting at the feet and ankles. Stay hydrated throughout the day and avoid salty/fried snacks that can exacerbate the swelling.

On rare occasions, swelling in other parts of the body, such as your neck and face, or severe and/or sudden swelling could be a sign of preeclampsia. Check with your doctor right away if you think your swelling is abnormal.


Tension headaches often rear their ugly heads during pregnancy, making for a rather painful experience. To avoid headache pain, be sure to get plenty of sleep at night and maintain your doctor-approved exercise program. Good posture and eating well-balanced meals can also keep pregnancy-induced headaches at bay. To fight a headache, apply a cool compress and rest in a dark room to relieve the pain.
