Pregnancy is a time of great miracle and great strain. Our muscles are pulling in new ways to support new weight, joints become strained, circulation changes, and it all adds up to a bundle of pregnancy discomforts. Staying active and taking care of your growing body will help to keep some of it at bay. The real key is to understand what’s at the heart of your pregnancy discomfort so that you can best address both the cause and the symptoms. Your body will still tell you what it needs -- you just need to listen a bit closer than before.
