From the moment you become pregnant your body begins to change. These changes continue until you deliver your baby and even 6-12 months after.
Your breast get bigger, then smaller. Your internal organs in your abdomen are moved around. Your abdominal muscles and ligaments in your stomach and buttocks begin to loosen. You instinctively protect your baby by collapsing in around your belly. Your hipbones start to separate. Often hands, ankles, and lower legs can swell and you can experience calf cramps. Changes in your appetite, sleep patterns as well as blood pressure occur and so much more. All of these changes for better or worse lead to exhaustion, stress, muscle tension, and just over all aches and pains.
