Women who can't sleep, have start and stop contractions (labor doesn't seem to start and continue), feel achey in the pelvis, hips or back, or it hurts when baby kicks may enjoy the results of the following techniques.
Walking briskly 2-5 kilometers (1-3 miles) a day
Yoga hip opening stretches
Bridge pose (or sit in a chair and squeeze a ball between knees, and then thighs, during exhale)
Forward-leaning inversion every day
Sidelying Pelvic Floor release once a day for a few days and then weekly
Sleep on either side with a long pillow between knees and ankles, not just knees!
Pelvic tilts and add a slow, long wiggle side-to-side while pelvic tilts
Drink 2.5 liters of good water, take one electrolyte drink a day but not the sugary sports (blue!) kind
Salt-to-taste in food and eat lots of dark green veggies
Pregnancy tea with a Red Raspberry Leaf base (not raspberry flavored black tea, please!)
Food-based iron (Shiff brand vegetarian iron supplement, Floradex w iron, millet, red veggies and Fava or pinto beans, and so on)
After a week, if still uncomfortable seek a body worker such as an osteopath, chiropractor, myofascial, Maya massage (not the same as pregnancy massage) and craniosacral therapy.
