As you grow, the back of your body takes more and more pressure trying to balance out and carry that beautiful load in the front. If you stretch regularly, it will make a big difference, not only in how you feel daily, but also how you feel as you approach D day! A loose body will definitely work to your advantage!
If you aren't flexible, take the stretches nice and slow, going deeper into the stretch on the exhale and pulling back a little on the inhale. All of these stretches are performed standing so you can do them safely at any point in your pregnancy. Save these stretches and put them on repeat, mama! I promise, it's worth the 10min and you'll thank me later!
