Have you ever had pregnancy pain?
The kind that makes you wish the baby’s due date was here already?
That was me!
I wrote this post at 27 weeks pregnant and I honestly didn’t know how I would make it through the next 3 months.
During this pregnancy I’d dealt with horrible nausea, heartburn, high blood pressure, and back pain.
How can you deal with pregnancy pain?
Sciatic pain came first followed by a strange pelvic pain that made it so I couldn’t sit down anywhere.
Not being able to sit was a huge interference in my daily life.
Thank goodness for modern technology that helped me get my work done while I lay in bed.
When your baby isn’t ready to come out yet sometimes pain is just something you have to learn to cope with.
Here are some of the things that helped me get through pregnancy pain with all 3 of my babies.
This isn’t the time to feel guilt about getting take out or preparing easy to cook meals for your family.
Costco premade meals were my best friend during pregnancy pain and unbearable nausea.
There was no way I could cook dinner for my family and we all appreciated an easy hot meal.
A support system
If it weren’t for my family coping with pregnancy pain would be a lot harder.
They cheer me on, comfort me, and help me find solutions when I’m feeling hopeless.
Advice from Other Moms
Reach out to other moms. Find a pregnancy support group in your area to see if anyone has suggestions.
Of course, check with your doctor to be sure they are safe and healthy for you and baby.
The Comforts of Home
Sometimes during pregnancy you just have to accept that you can’t do it all.
Put on your comfiest pajamas grab some pillows and a blanket and set yourself up to relax.
This is when it helps to have your support system on hand to help out with your other kids.
But, if you don’t it’s okay to ask your older kids for help or put on a movie for the little ones so you can get a little bit of rest.
