Coping with backaches

All mummies, How do you guys cope with backaches and sleepless nights? I'm waking up to sore muscles and backaches and tend to do a little stretching after waking up. Any other suggestions? #advicepls #1stimemom

During my pregnancy I avoid standing or sitting too long . Avoid cold drinks. ( occasionally drink). Avoid aircon / fan blow at my legs or face. Also, whenever sitting down I will sit up straight while eating or watching tv / laptop . U can put a small pillow behind the back area. If taking a nap, I will sleep left side. I do stretching daily as well. Go for a 20- 30 mins walk. ( can rest 5 mins in between ) 2nd -3rd trim, I walk more compared to 1st trim. When closer to 3rd trim I tend to pee a lot during wee hrs also. Relax myself , don’t worry or over stressed . Drink a cup of warm milk before sleep. Read books or watch movie. Listen to music. Afternoon walk or a trip to supermarket. Do light house chores ( sweep the floors only 😅) , wash baby clothings batches by batches n keep Wardobe neatly. I’m more excited about baby’s clothings lol. I did went for prenatal massage once as well. Keep myself occupied daily. So I can rest earlier. Just the pee part , kept awake 😅 Some mummies likes to do prenatal yoga. ( must be 3-4 months preggy n above )
