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.

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.
