Round ligament pain is a common occurrence that mostly occurs In the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. This is because when your uterus expands, it puts pressure on the ligaments and other fibrous tissues that support your lower abdomen.

Although round ligaments pain cannot be avoided, there are things you can do that can help relieve the discomforts.

Here are ways to ease round ligaments pain

1 Shift your weight to relieve pressure on strained ligaments.

The weight of the baby may begin to exert painful pressure on the round ligaments if you stay in one position for too long. Shifting your body's position is the simplest technique to relieve pain. By redistributing the weight of the baby, shifting to a new position should help to relieve the strained ligaments.

2 Elevate your feet

 The weight of the growing baby will weigh on your round ligaments and stretch them down if you stay too long on your feet. Take a moment to rest your ligaments by sitting down and raising your feet on the ground.

When you strain yourself, round ligament discomfort gets worse, so take many rest intervals throughout the day if you can. If you're undertaking any strenuous activity, such as housework, exercise, or manual labor, it's extremely crucial to take frequent breaks.
