My Body – Pregnancy Week 32Brought to you by
How are you feeling? Have you been feeling like you are now waddling, instead of walking? This is a good thing! This week, your body is producing a hormone, called relaxin, which loosens and relaxes your pelvis, allowing for more mobility during pregnancy. It is also responsible for this new method of locomotion.
Do you have leg cramps keeping you awake at night? This is common, and there are a few things you can do to prevent them. Take breaks throughout your day to rest, and get off of your feet. Continue to drink lots of water (in case your muscles are just dehydrated), and eat a banana – your calcium and potassium levels might be low.
